Written by Tami:

Five years ago, (while Lauren was away on her honeymoon) I had an idea … why not start a blog? What a great way to document all of the creative projects we were always working on. When I brought this idea to my sister, her response was simple. All she said was, “No way! I don’t like to write.” Of course, with my background in teaching, I didn’t mind putting our thoughts into words … and a blog was born. Please note that with time, Lauren has become much more comfortable with the writing portion of this blog and now contributes regularly (but mostly on the topics of Interior Design and motherhood).

Over the past five years we have celebrated in many ways. Some years we have even thrown a party (as seen on these previous posts; 1st, 2nd, and 3rd)! This year, with so much going on, we found it difficult to celebrate in the way that we would have liked to, but that doesn’t mean we can’t acknowledge this day in the most important place … on our blog itself. We couldn’t be more proud of Side by Side Design’s growth to date, the fact that it is now not only a blog but a thriving business, and the way we have stuck to our goals and provided our readers with content for five straight years!

Thank you to all of our readers for keeping us going and giving us feedback! Keep reading! Keep letting us know what you like and what we can improve upon. Here’s to many more years of creating, coordinating, and collaborating . Happy birthday to our beloved blog … Side by Side Design!
