Reflections on One Year of Business!
Enthralled turns 1 year old today… As I reflect, I think about this girl who had no idea. She took a seed given to her by God, planted it, prayed her heart out and worked her butt off. The words, “Jesus, help” and “Thank you, Jesus” have flowed from my breath more times this year than my entire life preceding.
Spoiler alert: I still don’t know what the heck I am doing! But it is the love and encouragement of you all and the strength of my Jesus that keeps me going and motivates me to continue figuring it out. The truth is, beyond the clothes and the pageantry, my greatest reward this last year has been loving on y’all - and y’all loving on me. It has been forming new friendships, resurrecting old ones, and current ones showing up. I have truly come to fall in love with you and it brings me the deepest joy to see you wearing the clothes I have carefully selected with you in mind.
I still remember the indescribable feeling of seeing other people in my clothes for the very first time. After coming to know a lot of your all’s style, it is so much fun to post about a new product that you reply to and to which I can say, ‘I knew you would love this!’
My prayer is that each and every person within our fam feels cherished and inspired. I pray over each order as I am packaging it: ‘Jesus, I pray ____ loves this dress and feels absolutely beautiful and valuable in it. I pray you all feel a type of confidence in our clothes that equips you to step out into the world and use your gifts unabashedly.
There is so much I could say about the last year. Through the highs and the lows, I have had an absolute blast. If you are here, you are so incredibly special to me, you are an answered prayer, and you are prayed for. Here’s to whatever the Lord has in store! I love you all madly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in Enthralled.
