Hey y’all. I thought we had wrapped up the Style Matters podcast for 2018 last week. But then I started reflecting on the year and writing down a few thoughts about the biggest transition I’ve faced with Little Yellow Couch. Namely, becoming the sole owner/creator/chief bottle washer. And it got me thinking about trying to pull back the curtain a bit more than usual and share some of what goes on behind the scenes as an entrepreneur. I’ve never done an episode like this one. It’s personal. And it’s just me. No guests and no filter. I hope you can connect to it. And I wish you the very best end to your year and that you start 2019 with fresh eyes and an open heart.
So for this installment of OTLYC (On the Little Yellow Couch), I have a very special guest... Karen Grant, my former co-host of this podcast, and dear friend, is back in the studio! And when I say studio, I mean my living room. Now, we're all in the thick of holiday season so Karen and I are going to be talking about holiday stuff. She’s doing something really creative out of town and I’m on a mission to embrace the pairing down of shopping, decorating and guilt. Ha! Yes! No more guilt when the expectations for the perfect holiday don’t yield the perfect holiday!
I'm also already looking ahead to 2019 and want you all to know that I'll be offering another Style Retreat in Feb! If you didn't know about the last one or just want to get a feel for what it was like, you can go to littleyellowcouch.com and click on Retreat News where you can see photos and hear what the participants had to say about our weekend away. Honestly, I wasn't planning on doing one again so soon, but it was such an amazing time that we didn't want to wait before offering another one. I'll once again be teaming up with interior designer Megan Pflug to host this fabulous getaway at Woodhouse Lodge in the Catskills. So, if you have people in your life who have no idea what to get you for the holidays, you might want to direct them over here to Little Yellow Couch so they can spoil you with the best present ever! Ok, so enough about that. It's time for the last episode of 2018, On The Little Yellow Couch!
