As the year comes to an end, I love reflecting on the year, tying a tidy bow on all our projects, bookkeeping, stats and analytics…. It's amazing how much you can accomplish in a year.  

 

Want to peek at a few of the numbers with me?

 

🤓 😎 🤩

 

side note: if you're a numbers person and these kind of insights excite you, I'm hiring a Head of Operations right now!

days off

 

I'm NOT sharing this not as a badge of pride.  This year was incredibly draining for me and was NOT sustainable.  This is an area I'm hoping to improve greatly in 2021 so as to create some margin for the things that deeply matter to me.  There's tons of room to improve, so that's encouraging!  

 

For a start, if I simply take weekends off, that’s 104 days right there.  Hold me to it people!  Emily needs to delegate more and slow down a bit.  K?  ;)

the silliest mistake I’ve mad in a while…

 

this is how much $$$ I spent on an ad that only caught the attention of ONE PERSON.  

I hope they felt so, so loved.  LOL. 🤣🤣🤣

YOU WERE UNEXPECTED, YOU TAUGHT ALL OF US MORE THAN WE EXPECTED TO LEARN

 

and I'm thankful for most of you.

 

 

2021, please bring more time with family, more travel, lingering dinner parties, studio visits, meaningful, health, purpose, and time spent making things that are beautiful and  

 

Happy nearly-new years, friend.

 

xo, emily
