Zach and I have been MIA from blogging and Instagramming the past few weeks and are excited to kick back and relax this January, catch up on writing, editing photos, and wishing you all a happy new year!
2017 was a big year for us - we planned our wedding and got married in Tuscany surrounded by fifty of our closest family & friends; we launched our travel blog; we moved our menswear boutique and launched the new lifestyle brand Mick + Kip, as well as Lex & Lynne Bridal which has already been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, Once Wed, local publications, and ICONS of Pittsburgh; we traveled around the world and explored South Africa for two weeks, quite an adventure for us; and we juggled the ins and outs of every day life - and since May, married life!
Lex and her team at Lex & Lynne celebrating a successful year, 2017
Owning a business - three boutiques for us - over the holiday season can be extremely time consuming and means that sometimes our holidays get a little lost in the mix; so multi-tasking is the name of the game - we know for you as well! Time management is always a difficult thing for me but thankfully I've been lucky enough to have the help and support from our amazing team at Lex & Lynne, family, friends, and loyal customers - all of which help keep me grounded. We've worked every Christmas for the past four years and, while I love every minute of it, after a full year of planning and prepping our boutiques for the biggest season, we are exhausted and certainly ready for a breather and some down time! And New Years is it!
While January brings on a small bit of a break for us we are still working and developing our small businesses daily. Our blog is our priority, and we can't thank you enough for following us, reading our stories, and enjoying our photos which inspires us to share more and explore more every day! Share with us in the comments below some of your milestones and 2017 highlights, New Years resolutions and what you're looking forward to! We can't wait to see what's next for 2018!
