 “Good parents give their children roots and wings: roots to know where home is, and wings to fly off and practice what has been taught to them.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Admittedly, I am not Ary’s parent. However, over the last three years I’ve been privileged to be her co-worker, her partner in (coffee and/or cocktail related) crime, and her friend. She is now getting ready to drive cross country to her home state of New York, and I’m the first to say I will miss her endlessly. But the laughs and immense joy we shared—coupled with the knowledge we both gained working together—bring me nothing but happiness and hopefulness for her future.

It’s no secret that CMD relishes in everything community related. No further does that mindset ring true than our own studios: where ourcolleagues become family; where our elated memories together become art inspiration; where our belief in good heartedness becomes reality. I am so beyond humbled and grateful for my CMD team, each of whom adds a unique, awe-inspiring perspective to both my personal life and my business. Whether you’re near or far (or in transition, as Aryana!), a heartfelt cheers to each member of my phenomenal team. You are absolutely family in the most sincere use of the word, and I am proud to work with you every day.
