Another year in the books and certainly another to be thankful for. I turned 40 in 2022 and reaching this milestone has really inspired me to reflect on how far I have come both personally and professionally.
I cherish those first 39 years that have molded me into the woman I am today. I am grateful for all life’s obstacles, ups and downs and for all the people and experiences that have brought me to this point. Every year is a blessing and, like a good bottle of red, we all get better with age.
Over the past year, our family has settled nicely into our new home and we continue to make it ours with memories and fun. We finished the backyard living and pool area which is our favorite spot in the warmer weather. I also worked with our designer Laura to complete my office, and the reveal truly exceeded my expectations. Home decorating and projects are one of my favorite things to work on, so I will continue to share updates throughout 2023!
The kiddos are growing so fast and everyday I am reminded of how fleeting childhood is. The days might go by slow, but the years certainly fly so I am trying to savor every moment and practice mindfulness everyday. We were fortunate enough to all visit Disney this year which was just magical and a trip I will always remember. Michael and I feel so blessed and grateful for our family of five (and Chloe!) and want to thank you all for letting me share our daily life with you.
Cella Jane Blog also had another amazing year, and I am so grateful for this community. With the success of my first Splendid collection in 2021, I was able to create another in 2022 which was a huge success. What’s more, the collection was carried at two major retailers, Nordstrom and Dillards! I am beyond thankful to the Splendid team and am excited about what’s to come this year.
I want to end with a huge thank you to each and everyone one of you. You have made this journey possible and the success of Cella Jane is all because of this amazing community. Whether you joined the Cella Jane journey in the very beginning, are new here or are somewhere in between, I am so grateful. From daily fashion inspiration, to exclusive collections, home decorating to even my spicy margarita recipe, you all have been my biggest champions and supporters rooting me on through social media, email and in-person. I will forever love this Cella Jane community, and feel so blessed to call this my job.
So now a goodbye cheers to 2022, and a welcoming toast to 2023! To a fresh start and new, exciting ventures. I can’t wait to share what we have in store with you, and am looking forward to all this new year will bring.
