This past year has included more big life moments and change than I could have ever predicted, but all of which I am incredibly thankful for. From a new (first) home and new friendships to new family and new projects, 2015 has been a year full of things for which I am so very grateful.
In addition to these wonderful moments, for me, this year has most definitely been the best year of working at Design*Sponge. This was the year I made big changes, trusted my gut, expanded our team and, most importantly, learned to ask for what I really wanted and to have faith in the amazing people around me to push us toward our next chapter with strength, purpose and meaning. I could not be more thankful for the people I get to work with here every day and for the new faces joining our team (many of which are above — stay tuned for new columns next week!).
So for this Thanksgiving, I wanted to thank the amazingly talented, kind, thoughtful and hardworking people that make up our D*S writing team. From Los Angeles and NYC to Canada, London and Italy, our team is spread far and wide but I’ve never felt closer to all of them as a community. They are the people who make this dream job possible, and today I am thankful for them and for all of you out there who are a part of our extended family. Thank you for supporting us, for supporting the artists, designers and makers we love so much and for continuing to give us a space to talk about the things, places and people we admire. From all of us at Design*Sponge to all of you reading, best wishes for a safe and happy holiday. We will be back on Monday with beautiful homes, DIYS, recipes, interviews, inspiration and holiday content. Until then, thank you from all of us. xo, grace
