Happy New Year Everyone!!! I feel like 2016 flew by incredibly quickly.
I am officially back and going to make every effort to post on this blog this year. As I mentioned before the posts will now have to do with interior design via Studio Em Interiors as you are all used to and now I am adding illustration and pattern design posts to the mix via Emi Marie Illustration + Design, which is a new section of my business that I will be officially launching this year! More on that to come.
The blog is in the process of being updated for these changes and the original plan was to have everything complete before returning to posting normal. 2016 ended up being a whirlwind of a year for us and that just didn’t happen. So now you all get to come along for the ride as the changes are made and I will continue to post about it all along the way. A lot has happened since we last spoke and I will be updating you on all of it in the coming weeks. 2016 was a year full of ups and a lot of downs and unexpected surprises. We spent a lot of time being sad about things and now it is a new year and time to focus on the positives and to pull the positive things out of 2016 because for all the bad, there was so so much good as well. We spent the year traveling to visit friends and family. We got to see my brother get married to my wonderful new sister-in-law who we all love. I was married in November (I’ll share more about that soon), and the year was capped off with our honeymoon and a great holiday with my family. We rang in the new year celebrating my Dad’s 60th birthday. It was a great end to an otherwise absolutely crazy year.
