Blue hues and Two!
"HUSTLE!!" has been my motto for the last couple of months. (The mini-sized note pad for the oh-so-lovely Dulce Dreams Events is perfect for writing self motivating notes!) Between finishing off two of my biggest weddings of the year in August (totaling up to 32 different pieces), carrying 20+ pounds of paper from my printers downtown, and waiting in line at the post office, it has been one crazy wedding season adventure, not to mention quite a work out!
With everything that has been going on, I almost forgot to celebrate the second birthday of Yuling Designs. In looking back on year two, the only thing I can say is that I feel truly, truly blessed. It has been a joy meeting and learning the life stories of the coolest and most unique group of people- from a neighbor who is starting a chocolate + nuts snack company, to an organization that provides support to NYC's homeless, to couples in love, to fellow entrepreneurs and industry mates. I am touched by the opportunity to "walk with" and support y'all in your journeys of life. I can't wait to see what happens next in your adventures... growing businesses, babies, new ventures, etc.!
And now for a funny but random story: Every year we try to make a trip back to Singapore to see family. While I'm there, I always try to make it out to some of the awesome stationery stores (there's so much stuff you can't get in the States!). This year's buys included a pair of fancy, gold Parisian scissors. After I checked out Immanuel said to me, "Oh, you finally bought those Eiffel Tower scissors...". Come to find out, apparently I had been eying them last year but had decided not to get them then. I guess my tastes don't change much from year to year, haha. Score!!
