It's hard to believe January has already wrapped up, and we're onto February. To quickly reflect on last year, we feel thankful for everything that this past year brought us: new friends, humbling accolades, incredibly thoughtful clients, fantastic new employees and deeper relationships all around. May this year continue to serve as a reason why we do what we do. We thought a fun way to start this year would be by delving further into "who we are" and asking ourselves some of those "important questions". Hopefully, these just help inform a little bit more about us and help to enrich our friendships among all of you even further. xx, rose & erin
