Thanks to everyone who helped, inspired or encouraged us.
In particular, on behalf of our small (but growing!) family business we'd like to thank:
- All the wonderful bloggers/writers/designers who share our passion.
- All the journalists who have encouraged us by sharing or recommending our creations.
- All the shops and small businesses who sell our products.
- And of course, all those people who bought something for themselves, their friends or family.
As a family, on the whole, we loved 2009. We lost a few, had a little more bad news (like everyone) but mostly we're left smiling with some incredible souvenirs:
We moved to France.
We launched lots of new products for Famille Summerbelle - most notably the maps of London, Paris and New York.
Ophelia started school. French and English (her French is probably better than mine - depressingly)
Julie gave birth to our beautiful little boy Lucien. Officially the easiest baby in the world.
And I quit our last vestige of security. My job.
So here's to 2010. We're happy, excited and just a little scared. Perfectly ready I'd say.
Happy New Year, and thanks again!
