Here We Go. Onward & Upward!

Well, Well, Well 2020WON…

We are so delighted to meet you! You have been a long awaited dream and are finally here to wake us up and WIN us over! You are breathe of fresh air, the light at the end of the tunnel and the start of a new beginning – how exciting for us ALL!  We cannot wait to get this party started and let you take us onward and upward! Together.

We all know this past year presented various trials and tribulations that will mostly remain unsaid (we are all aware). However, it also graced us with laughter, family time, opportunities to reflect & think forward, be considerate, create new habits and just be HOME. We’ve all found our own silver lining to each of our stories and found ways to look on the brighter side.

At LL&A we certainly had our share of experiences as individuals and also as A-Team (no pun intended, well maybe just a little pun).

Like most of you, we were challenged daily with new formats of meeting our clients (HELLO ZOOM), working from home, social distancing and keeping our eyeglasses from fogging up!

Oh Yeah… AND quarantine! From illness to family matters, we had equal amounts of fun, love and blessings.

During 2020, we were excited to attend the Las Vegas Market in January, participate in the very FIRST Virtual Homearama in July, complete various residential renovations and commercial projects (all of which we are very grateful), participated in the annual JeffMainStreet Holiday Open House, Small Business Saturday, AND expanded our team members by adding three new interior designers and one tiny new addition.

Now Introducing:

Shelby Sills, 2020 University of Louisville Graduate (our very own self described “extra”, queen of the selfie).

Mallory O’Brien,  2020 Indiana University Graduate (sweet and silent but packs a dry wit we all love).

Katie Bryant, 2020 University of Louisville Graduate (resident fashionista and the only one of us that can rock suspenders and white go-go boots).

Weston Eurton, 2020 May Addition (our cutest, wildest future delivery boy).

We thank each of them for joining our team and to Lauren for delivering such a sweet little tot to the team, just like icing on cake! There were so many positive vibes, personalities, loves and friendships formed in 2020 and we are thrilled!

Looking to 2020WON

We will be exploring endless possibilities to create mindful, innovative, functional & beautiful spaces for each of our clients. Since the new year has rolled in, we’ve started fresh and eager to step up our game, learn something new, teach something positive, mentor, lead, follow, set examples and be good people.

The 2020WON Blog promises to deliver the newest in design products, inspiration, instructional tips and more.

Starting with the 2020WON Pantone color of the year! We love the contrast and story behind the decision to release two colors this year, how appropriate!

Meet Pantone colors of the year for 2021: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating.

Our attitude is gratitude and we are deeply thankful to our clients, families, industry associates and supporters for enabling us to do what we all love.

Let’s take the best and leave the rest!

Our Year In The End

So here we are… 2019 has come to a close and 2020 is here.

LLA New Year 2020

2019 marks many experiences, changes and accomplishments for our team’s personal and professional lives. Together we finished the year feeling confident, satisfied, accomplished, grateful and blessed. Yes, we work hard to serve our clients and nurture our business, but we also feed and water our personal lives and relationships. Keeping our tanks full is essential for each of us. We all work hard to maintain work and home balance. As challenging as it may be, we are all determined to keep all balls in the air!

2019 had plenty of scene stealing headlines but we cannot let them over shadow our own contributions to story telling!
Granted, history was made when President Trump became our nations 3rd president to be impeached, yes, this is a big deal. We get it… and yes, the college admissions scandal was a pretty big deal, but we made our own newsworthy articles ourselves!

LL&A Headlines, Read All About It!

A year of planning…

Did you think Justin and Hailey were the only couple to tie the knot this year? Well, our very own Sarah and Matt put a ring on it and strolled down the aisle in October too!

A year of anticipation…

Duchess Megan and Prince Harry are not the only ones to have had a baby boy, Lauren and Cody are expecting their very own bundle of joy in May of 2020.

A year of change…

Leslie’s “25 year old bundle of joy” son, Murphy landed his dream job in South Florida which has made for several fun trips to the Sunshine State getting him settled in with many more trips to come!

A year for learning something new…

Playing nurse was never a game Tammy was particularly good at as a little girl, but this year proved to be her year to learn. Luckily, she picked it up quickly and helped nurse two parents back to health.

A year of balance…

Dawn continues to balance her life here in Southern Indiana with her world in Fort Wayne where her two daughters, two son-in-laws and six grandchildren live.

A year of growth…

This was a year of growth for Whitley. Julia Roberts certainly has nothing on our adventurous girl. On a solo trip to Cabo to celebrate her 30 years of life, she ate and prayed the whole week long! Cheers to spiritual growth!

Together we each closed the year having planned, anticipated, changed, learned and balanced many aspects of our lives. Some things turned out as planned – others maybe not. Some changes we welcomed – others more unexpected. Lessons we learned were blessings and changes will always be just as the seasons change.
