2017 is coming to a close. I’m not huge on new year’s resolutions. I think they can set you up for failure. Plus, I like to think I’m constantly setting goals and looking for ways to improve throughout the whole year, not just for a few weeks at the beginning of January 🙂

With that said, I would like to share a few of my favorite events/accomplishments from the past year!

Baby Girl

It’s no surprise that the absolute best part of 2017 was the birth of our daughter, Ayla. Ayla is the biggest blessing, and continues to be the highlight of every day. She made me a mother, and I’m forever grateful that we get to raise her. With the birth of Ayla, I also was able to get some time to step back from my business and allow my friend Megan (the social and marketing brains of the business) to take the reins while I enjoyed some time with our daughter.

Business Growth

This little shop I opened up a few years ago continues to grow, and in ways I never dreamed of. Year-over-year, total page views, page visits, orders, and revenue are all up! Bliss Paper Boutique was featured on Style Me Pretty, The Trendy Bride, and The Knot to name a few. I also added over 50 new items to the shop this year. We can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!

New House

In 2017 we bought a lot, hired builders, and designed and built our dream home. My husband and I both work from home, so a two-bedroom condo just wasn’t cutting it! We are so thankful to be in a home we truly love, and a home we can grow into for years and years to come!

Entered Amazon

This is probably news to most of you, but recently, Bliss Paper Boutique entered the world of Amazon! We’re starting out small and look forward to growing! We are constantly looking for new ways to expand and deliver! Click here to see the items Bliss is currently selling on Amazon.

Exciting celebrations for family and friends

Last, but not least, we celebrated so many weddings and births of children with our family and friends this year! Most recently, my sister got married! And when it comes to babies, I honestly can’t count how many little ones entered our circle of friends in 2017. There is nothing better celebrating life’s special milestones with the ones you love.
