I can’t believe another year has passed! Each year during the days that surround my birthday, I reflect on my blessings and the year that has just passed and dream about the year ahead. Once again, I have so much to be thankful for: my family, friends, AWL team, partners and YOU!
While this past year has truly been a challenging one for me and for my family, there has also been so much joy through it all. Nothing means more to me than my family. My husband and I shared 24 Things about Us on our 24th Anniversary and can’t wait to celebrate 25 years of marriage in April. Having this Godly man by my side who is willing to do the hard things as well as the fun things that push us out of our comfort zone, makes all the difference. Being able to support him and our girls when we have hard times is easier knowing the Lord, Jesus Christ goes ahead of us and hems us in behind. It is my hope that you personally know this as well.
Your support of the rebranding of The Lush List to Alicia Wood Lifestyle and how you have grown in numbers this year has kept me going when I wanted to hang it up for a bit. This is my little happy place when things are hard and YOU make it possible! Your encouraging comments, emails and messages on Instagram, lift my spirits and put a spring in my step on days I need it. I truly hope this space does the same for you!
My goal is to inspire you to create memories with your family and friends through good food, entertaining at home and travel. The style and beauty posts are the frivolous fun we all need. Memories are the sweetest things we have to share with those we love. We’ve been relaxing in Telluride this week after surprising the girls Christmas morning and creating more memories here to add to almost 16 years of memories we have as a family in this magical place. It’s been a great week of fun and rest.
I look forward to sharing the exciting projects I have on the horizon for 2020 with you soon. I am so thankful to my many retail partners that make this dream job possible. Their support also means the world to me. You can see these brands under the collaborations category.
My wonderful team (Kaitlyn – planning, post writing, website updating and more, Morgan – social media coordinator, Allison – PR, Audrie – fabulous photography, Maddie – branding design work and Marc – website guru) and I have some great plans for AWL in the coming year. An email asking for your thoughts will be coming soon, so please be on the look out! Until then, I wish you a wonderful end to 2019 and a fabulous 2020.
Much love and cheers to you on my birthday!
