drinks and dreams

2014 has been a big, scary, exciting, overwhelming year for me and I’m just starting to fully grasp the breadth of my business and what I need to be doing continuously to make it succeed.  I wanted to take a moment and give you all the credit you deserve for being a big part of this success.  You all were there for me lending endless encouragement and support as I, not only grew House of Earnest, but also quit my day job to launch my own product line and online boutique, Grandiflora.

It was a surreal few weeks after the launch and I was fueled by excitement of the unknown. As purchases were being made, I began seeing some of your lovely names in the shipping information and realized how vital this House of Earnest community is to my business. Without all of you, could have never have achieved this dream, I couldn’t have gotten the word out, I couldn’t have reached as many like-minded consumers, I couldn’t have had the confidence to dive in.  I am forever thankful to you guys, and not just the readers who have bought their own Grandiflora goodies, but to all of you guys for sharing what I’m doing here, encouraging, and cheering me on!  Without an office full of co-workers anymore, it’s you guys who inspire me and encourage me to keep going at full speed.

So, thank you for helping me achieve my biggest goal to-date in 2013.  Cheers to you and may the new year bring wonderful things for you all.
