The last day of 2018. It feels so weird to type out those words, as this day last year doesn’t feel that far off. But what a year it’s been. This was the year of fruition for us, both personally and professionally. After many years of working on building Gal Meets Glam into something tangible, we launched GMG Collection this past April, on both shop.galmeetsglam.com & Nordstrom. This was the biggest goal we’ve ever set for ourselves, and after a handful of years ending without seeing a finish line in the future, we finally did it. It was emotional and tiring, pushing us to beyond what we ever thought we were capable of, making us also take a step back and refocus.
Over this past year, I’ve realized that designing and creating dresses has brought me more joy and fulfillment than anything else I’ve ever worked on. I truly feel as though I’m doing exactly what I should be. It didn’t come without many questioning moments and doubting observers, but in my gut, I know it’s me. And I couldn’t have done any of this without my best friend, business partner and husband, the man behind every single GMG blog & Collection photo, and the brains behind the operation, Thomas. I feel so lucky to have him by my side and to have an incredible team in both Charleston and NYC who work tirelessly to create the vision we set out for Gal Meets Glam.
I also couldn’t end the year without thanking YOU. Our amazing readers, who many now are customers!!! The immense support and love you have shown us this year is incredible. I still get chills and tears in my eyes when I think of our launch day, and how we were blown away, beyond our wildest dreams, from the response and connection for you all. Every single order, every photo shared, every comment made, every email sent, does not go unnoticed and means so much to not only us, but our wonderful team who also pour their heart and soul into creating this line for you all. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
I’m so excited for a new year ahead and ready for all of the challenges and opportunity that new beginnings bring. We’ll be expanding Gal Meets Glam Collection into even more retailers and boutiques, along with growing our team and more! I’m ready for this new chapter and will see you all in the new year!
