Business-wise, we had our greatest year yet. It was a whole year of running inviting full-time (even though I did get a retail job for a few hours a week,) my printing skills improved even more, our first wholesale catalog was released in June, we got into some great handmade fairs with exposure to new audiences, and even got a little publicity in the stationery blog world for our Snarky Parking cards.

Of course, then there are all of the things that I did that weren't on my lists, like travel! T and I went to Washington DC, saw family in El Paso, and visited his family, with a side-trip to the beach. While family trips weren't a huge surprise (though learning to shoot on one of those sure was), the trip to DC was a proper touristy trip- no family, no friends, just us and the city. I also said Yes to more things, which is one of the whole points of having your own business.
I've had a quote on my wipe board for a while: We create our businesses so we can create the lives we want. (Jenny Shih) While it's hard to break away from the work, sometimes it's best to in order to live the life you want.
