A note from Kimmy, the owner and founder of Drift Design Co.
2016 was a wonderful year. Some really good things happened and a few not so great things, but all in all I am thankful for a very blessed year.
My husband, Ryan and I paid off our student loans, cars and credit cards so we are completely debt free 🙌🏻(besides our mortgage of course). We became landlords for the first time and used our duplex as a baseball camp rental over the summer and have been renting to college students since then. We learned a lot as to what it truly means to be homeowners and have renovated (and are still renovating) our multi-family home. We launched our very own church, @anchoroneonta that Ryan became the pastor of and I am the creative director for. 🙏🏻 We checked off our number one task on our bucket list and saw Paul McCartney in concert! I FINALLY stopped playing it safe and took the plunge and made several Drift products for my Etsy Shop. I had not one, but two(!) holiday pop up shops for the first time ever that were huge successes! I went from having only sold 3 items on Etsy at the beginning of the year to 87 over the holiday season.
It's been wonderful but at the same time very busy as Ry and I still work full time jobs on top of Drift and church. Due to our insanely crazy lives, we have lost some friends and gained some (a lot) of weight. 😔😒 There have been plenty of struggles, lots of stress with some sleepless nights, and many mistakes made but all in all we are learning from it and are excited for what 2017 is going to bring.
We are going to take time to spend time with those who truly care about us and who are happy for our successes, make it a priority to be healthy and take care of our bodies again, love and serve those around us through the church and keep running the race that is set before us. Oh and of course I plan on blogging a little bit more than 3x a year. Haha.
So thank you to all who have supported my business, bought my products, sent me encouraging messages, shared my posts, liked my pictures and encouraged me in my entrepreneurial endeavors! You know who you are and I appreciate you! But most of all, I am so thankful to God for all the blessings He has given me. Without Him, none of this would be possible. I look forward to a new year following His lead and giving glory to Him in all that I do.
So Happy New Year to you and your family! May you be blessed in the year to come!
XOXO ~ Kimmy
