It comes but once a year and now it’s here! Today marks Once Upon a Dollhouse’s blog anniversary. The Dolls are celebrating their golden birthday – turning five on January 5th in royal fashion… because no matter the circumstances, Caitlin and Dani care most about sticking together.
These photos were taken by our friend and photographer Crystal at the newly remodeled Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago.
Last year, we were all about champagne and sparkles! Things have certainly changed – plenty for the good and some we could certainly do with out. Our lack of champagne is only due to Cait’s April 27th due date (baby boy on the way)! We still find plenty of reason to get dolled up in Mira Couture gowns and Lagos Jewelry (even if we’re just headed grocery shopping).
Although we have focused on our silver linings, we can’t deny how much the pandemic has changed our lives. We are aware that gaining perspective in a difficult time takes practice and patience. Read our latest New Years post for some of our trials and triumphs over the past year – we are an open book (click here).
These are the times when you get by with a little help from your Dolls! We consistently choose to stand by each others side, even when our personal wins and losses feel so different.
Within this year of struggles, we have also experienced growth. We were pushed to rethink, pivot and expand our business ventures.
We started the Doll Talk Podcast, which has become a fan favorite. New episodes cover a variety of lifestyle topics with unforgettable interviews. Our motto is – if it’s going on our bodies or in our bodies we will probably be talking about it on The Doll Talk Podcast!
Our Top 5 Goals for 2021
- Do what is best for Once Upon a Dollhouse, Dollhouse Social and The Doll Talk Podcast
- Stick together in our friendship through the uncontrollable ebb & flow of life
- Be positive and help heal the world
- Allow ourselves to feel all the feels but stay optimistic and hopeful through it all
- Be kind to all and have a big forgiving heart no matter what!
We are looking forward to all of our Doll-tastic adventures in 2021! Stay tuned, stay safe, stay healthy and most importantly… Stay Beautiful.
