Can you believe we're almost halfway through 2021?!
It has been a crazy and chaotic first six months. Many people were hoping things would go back to “normal,” but it didn’t quite happen that way. People probably found themselves in a place where they thought they’d never be.
Jobs were lost, priorities were reevaluated, and goals were adjusted.
Speaking of goals, one of my goals for this year was to honor and follow through with my “word of the year.”
If you remember my word is CELEBRATE, so I want to take a minute to stay true to my goal and share some of my mid-year wins with you!
🌟 Had my first graphic design magazine feature (and was a winner - see my winning designs here)
🌟 Served at a local non-profit in Connecticut through AIGA CT - check it out here
🌟 Celebrated the opening of Roux, the dream restaurant of my friend and client, Stephanie Civitillo.
🌟 Added a new designer to my team (and you’ll learn more about her very, very soon! Stay tuned!)
🌟 Getting into the routine of going to bed before midnight *most days!* (sleep is essential!) I even made myself a badge of honor!
🌟 Worked with my dream client Brit Morin of Brit + Co and designed the marketing campaign for her entrepreneurial course called Selfmade.
I have a few more wins, but you can check them out over on my Instagram soon.
I would love to hear about what wins you have had so far this year. So go ahead and comment below and tell me all about them. No matter how big or small your wins might be, they are completely worth celebrating and I want to celebrate with you! 🤗
