15 Jan STILL DAYDREAMING
Is there a word bigger or GRANDER than gratitude that could try and describe how the past week has made us all feel!? I mean, technically there’s lots of looonger, bigger words, but I’m not sure any of them can sandwich these feelings into one word better. We are SO grateful. We are so proud. And ha, we’re a little tired! But I think the energizing glow of our Consultants will keep us buzzing all month long.
First of all…they REALLY all seemed to love Daydream Believer. I mean, REALLY REALLY love it! And that makes me feel like a million bucks. And I can only imagine how Ashley feels – her first Spring release, from start to finish! It will be a part of her story forever. And we’re just getting started?! I can’t even imagine what beauty we will create in the future together! I’m so happy to be designing in this beautiful bubble with her.
Second of all…we let a couple secrets out…how could we not!? These are our girls after all. I wonder how many of them have spilled the beans!? Welp, you won’t have to keep your lips sealed any longer lady friends…
We’ve got more women’s designs headed your way! We’re trying a whole bunch of different shapes, styles, fabrics, colors, you name it—trying to figure out what Wildflowers Women’s clothing looks like to us! With an outfit or two coming with each release, you’ll be able to make picture perfect outfit pairings for *almost* the whole family! Yeah, I’m not quite brave enough to get into Dad’s clothes yet, even though I think Mark (the handsome husband) would be more than enough adorable inspiration…
Like I said, we’re prepared to dress like 3/4 of the family now!! YEP—we have a few special boy pieces coming with each release this season! Ahhh…I’m so excited. I haven’t designed boys in years, so we’re taking it slow and steady— a button-up here, a pair of shorts there, and maybe a bowtie or two. I hope your dapper dudes love them as much as I do!! I know Kate, our photographer, can’t wait to dress her precious boy Hayes in them, and of course, our CEO, Ashton’s son Bennett had to make his Wildflowers debut and model the new looks!
Third of all,..just because I prefer odd numbers, I want to call out MY TEAM. That’s right, MY HOMETOWN HEROES – my office girls *and boys*. How lucky are we to be in this boat together?! I would be lost without my humans. I moved to Texas for a job and now I have a family, a colorful overwhelmingly creative career, and I’m just so thankful. You guys make my real life dreams come true!
And finally…someone reminded me of my own words on Friday night of Conference that I really need to keep in my nugget. It was weird to be quoted (even though she shortened it because…I, ha, talk/write A LOT), and even weirder that I wanted to take my own advice. “Wildflowers, they’re curious little plants…they POP UP out of nowhere, they can take over an entire garden if given the chance…they’re natural. They’re unique. And try to cut them down, I dare ya! I bet they’ll come back. Stronger than ever.”
Stronger than ever. That’s us. And my goodness, after last week, I FEEL it, don’t you!?
And now, let’s go do a little daydream believing.
