I don’t tell you how often I love you.
But, I should.
Because without you, I wouldn’t be here.
When I left him, I left you. And while Athens was my refuge, you were here waiting for me to come back. And when I did – we flourished, little Benjamin and I. The reasons?
I found a progressive professional culture, a welcoming social circle of fellow parents and I could afford to live very well on less than my counterparts in the “bigger” cities. But you are just big enough for me, in fact – the perfect size. You have all of the urban fun a girl could ask for but you also have quiet, peaceful neighborhoods where Benjamin can thrive.
And you also gave me something else–something I can’t even describe or put into words–you gave me the opportunity to start my own business. It started with a laptop and an LLC license and now we are in your Downtown, right in the hustle and bustle of Gay Street. All seven of us.
Together we are creating amazing digital content for our clients, but we are also creating a company that isn’t profit driven – it’s driven by the fact that we love what we do. And that, my friends, is a beautiful thing. Because at the end of the day money is money and happiness is happiness–and, well, which would you rather have? Turns out if you are happy, money follows. But you already know that, because you are awesome.
So, we came up with this idea to tell you how much we love you.
We made you a Valentine’s Day Card – but it’s not finished. You have to finish it for us… your turn, Columbus. Click on the image to make your card.
Columbus, I love you with all of my heart. And happy birthday.
