First of all, if you are reading this, I want to thank you for being here! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged and though we have been completing so many projects, our blog posts have been few and far between. So thank you for venturing off of social media and heading over here to our little corner of the universe. I would love to promise you that this will change and we will get back to blogging regularly (or at least weekly?), but with the way things are shaping up already in the new year, I can’t promise anything except that we certainly try our best!
So…. welcome to 2019! I love the feeling of a new year… fresh start and all things possible! Something very exciting happened last month and I really missed an opportunity to pause, reminisce and celebrate the fact that my business turned 10! Yes, it’s been TEN years since I started The TomKat Studio blog on a whim, and boy has it been a ride! In case you haven’t heard, “TomKat” is named after my children, Tommy + Kate who were 3 and 1 when I started the blog. Yes, that means they are now 13 and 11! Where does time go?! I’ve loved every single minute of it and appreciate all of the twists and turns as they have brought to where I am today. The tagline I created for TomKat when I started was “A Place for All Things Pretty” and while I don’t use that slogan anymore, it’s amazing that the message continues so many years later. Whether I was creating pretty parties, designing pretty graphics, styling pretty photo shoots… it always was and continues to be about making things prettier than I found them. Now, our focus is making homes pretty and it is oh-so-fun!
To recap 2018, I made a few big decisions and exciting changes (you can read more here). I went back to real estate school, started a real estate brokerage, TomKat Real Estate, then bought, renovated, staged and sold several homes. On top of that, I started taking on a few remodel design, decorating and staging clients! I built a new team of incredible women who are the best of the best and all bring different skills and talents to the TomKat team. I’ll introduce them to you soon! It was a crazy busy year, like “I’ve never worked this hard” busy and I always work hard, so at the end of the year, we finished up as much as we possibly could, then I crashed, enjoyed the holidays and went on a nice, long vacation in the snow. In the snow, I dreamed about the fresh new year ahead.
So here we are, 15 days into January of 2019. Things are happening. Things are getting done. Things are falling into place and I haven’t been this giddy in ages about the future of TomKat.
Cheers to 2019, friends!
