Now that Alice + Ames has hit it’s official 6 month mark, I wanted to give a giant thank you to everyone who has cheered for us and shopped with us the last few months! If I’m being completely honest, when I took the leap to open up my own shop, it wasn’t the best of timing. I had a 5 week old, my husband had just taken a risky commission-based job, and we were still adjusting to 3 little ones at home. As the site got closer and closer to launching, I started panicking. ‘Putting yourself out there’ is truly terrifying! The morning I had planned to post about my new company, I called Geoff beforehand and only half-jokingly told him I was going to shut the whole thing down. Once I finally mustered up enough courage to hit ‘share’, I was bombarded with nothing but kind words and support. I’m so glad I didn’t let fear and doubt take over! A million Thank You’s to you all for shopping small and letting me do what I love.
