Welcome to the new decade! We hope you celebrated safely with people you loved, or if you're the type to stay in and watch the ball drop, we hope you had a wonderful time doing that too. Going into the new decade naturally brought both Little Egg and I to a place of deep introspection. We thought about the years that had passed and the years ahead with both excitement and a sort of bittersweet nostalgia for the good times that are now just fond memories. But we're done being sad and nostalgic now, and we're ready to kick things into high gear and be badasses.
For this month we are embracing the theme of the Roaring 20s. Excitement, vitality, freedom, glamour and fun were the buzzwords of the decade Fitzgerald knew, and they're making a comeback now a hundred years later. This January we want to start the decade off right by being wild, having fun, and setting off a spark to ignite a new year and a new decade. We want our content to inspire something in all of you to run wildly and with reckless abandon, to create without inhibition, to love loudly and fervently, and overall just get your year off to a great start.
Be on the lookout for a playlist from our middle school days that is playful and upbeat, a modern take on the iconic flapper style of the 1920s, and some exciting info about our plans for the year ahead. Keep up with us on our instagram, we're reinventing everything and will be more active on that platform. In the meantime, happy new year! We're excited you're here.
