in the river
Our product launches are always an adventure. Middle of the winter, late night trips to an undetermined destination in NH, mid-week overnights at the lake after picking the product up two hours prior. Spontaneous. Fun. Oh, yes. It's how we roll these days.
This launch was much the same except we were at my home in the hills and valleys of Vermont. My kids had crawled into bed with Hannah at 6am for morning snuggles (their absolute favorite thing ever). By 8am we had already made a breakfast of epic deliciousness and had our to-do list mapped out.
Hannah is all about #secretspyroadtrips and we announced to the kids that we were about to have an amazing adventure. They begged us for information, but we just smiled, packed their snacks and buckled them into the car. Their excitement was adorable... their music requests and temperature control needs were not as adorable, but somehow we made it the whole trip without giving the surprise away.
And then we arrived, parking the car in a little pull off on the side of the road. We assessed the way down to the water and wondered if it would be possible. Before we knew it the kids were out of the car, scaling the hillside, traversing boulders and winding their way around the raspberry bushes. Like mountain goats. Wild little mountain goats. We had no choice but to follow.
And thankfully we did. Because we found our own little slice of river heaven.
Selfie stick in hand we got all our shots for our newest tank, laughing and working, feet in the water, sun on our shoulders while the kids swam and explored and collected rocks (roughly 350. That they begged us to bring home. We compromised with 3 each).
This. This is my happy. Doing work that lights me up, with a woman I adore beyond words, with our kids playing beside us. I love that these magical little souls are seeing us create and expand inside of our work. I love that they love my people as much as I do and that my people love them right back. I feel so blessed that this long awaited dream is coming true and for the beautiful encouragement and support we are receiving from all of you. Heart. Full.
We have some exciting new products in the works and we cannot wait to share them with you! Looking forward to the next launch adventure... probably near some magical waters.
