What a year!
Oh what a year it has been at Life’s Little Celebrations!
The new website was launched which was hugely exciting to see come to fruition.
The ‘Celebrate’ conference day was hosted for the first time which was another leap of faith – and I’m so happy I took that leap after hearing the feedback about the positive impact the conference had.
Life’s Little Celebrations was grateful to be featured in various publications such as Donna Hay Magazine, Practical Parenting Magazine, Little One Magazine, the Babyology website, the LENZO blog, Sweet Magazine and Confetti Fair magazine – truly such an honour!
Life’s Little Celebrations also hit 55,000 followers on Instagram which was really a testimony to the LLC partners whose work and products I share daily on the @lifeslittlecelebrations Instagram account.
However the highlight each year is always the connections I make with the LLC partners throughout the year and the connections and networks I see evolve amongst them – I love seeing the Life’s Little Celebrations community grow and assisting business owners in this industry to flourish!
Personally falling pregnant with our 4th child was a huge highlight and one that will make 2017 another exciting year (with baby due in March). Due to the pregnancy I kept my own kids parties quite low key this year but I’ll be doing a blog post soon on how we did celebrate their birthdays soon.
Running a business and planning the Celebrate conference while also being pregnant definitely challenged me at times and so this was the year I took the step to finally outsource aspects of my business. For those of you running a small businesses reading this – I can only encourage you to do the same when you feel as though you are not getting enough sleep and you don’t have enough time anymore. Yes it means sacrificing some of your income – but the sanity and sleep you receive in return is worth it!
So what is to come in 2018..besides a new baby?
Life’s Little Celebrations is excited to be launching a new digital magazine – ready to inspire and equip those mums who love to party plan AND those business owners running a business in the event industry.
I also hope to host the Celebrate conference later in 2017 after the wonderful response it received this year.
There are a few other exciting involvements for LLC in the new year which I’ll announce in time.
However for now it is time to wish you all a wonderfully joyful Christmas with your family and friends
I hope 2017 is a fantastic year where you can reach the goals you may have and also overcome challenges which come your way
Thank to all the Life’s Little Celebration partners who are part of this wonderful network as well as all those who have partnered with LLC this year in various ways!
Life’s Little Celebrations will still be posting some inspiring and gorgeous parties & products on Facebook and Instagram and have a few blog posts over this wonderful season to share with you all.
However I’ll also be taking a break to celebrate Christmas and the New Year with my family, celebrate my son’s 2nd Birthday and head off on a short family getaway – so we will be back in the full swing of things on Monday 16th January
