A thank you to all of these faces and so many more. Where do I even begin. For those that have been with Silver Orchid from the beginning, thank you for walking through this journey with me, for trusting me with these special memories and for loving me and my family and my team along the way. This years event truly had you all in mind. I wanted to create something new and different just for you so that you still have your yearly tradition but so that you felt a little extra loved. Without all of you, this is impossible.
To those new to all of this, I hope this is the beginning of a new family tradition for you. I know Cool Yule feels like a well oiled, mass produced mega event but let me tell you every bit of this event is home grown. It started 6 years ago in my upstairs home-studio and even though it looks a lot different now, the heart behind it, the mission to give you all the magic of the season has not changed. Sure, I have a team behind me but in the end this truly is just a small family run business with all the heart, all the hiccups, all the sacrifice, and all the back-breaking work it takes to bring this to you all.
Know this… I don’t do any of this so you come one time and never come back…..I want you to come back for Cool Yule year after year, I want you to come in the springtime for A Garden party, I want you to think of me when your cousin is getting married or your friends are starting a new business, I want you to bring your babies for all those special milestones and all the life in between. I want your kids to get to know me and my team and to grow with us and to become one big huge family along the way.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I hope you all have the Merriest of Chirstmases and the Happiest New Year!
