A Look Back at 2020 at The Groomsman Suit
Oh, hey 2021.
2020 certainly was a ride. It was hard, humbling and really real.
We saw the excitement of engagements, the sadness of weddings postponed and celebrations that looked a lot different than years before.
Our TGS families welcomed a baby, a gaggle of puppies, celebrated milestones, moved their families closer to loved ones, faced personal impacts of COVID-19 and said goodbye to cherished family members.
We kept busy in 2020. We signed a lease on a new showroom in Denver. We hired a Marketing Director and two new showroom managers. Between our team members we adopted four dogs and a cat, and moved into three new homes. And, our co-founder Diana welcomed a baby girl into the world.
We spent a lot of time at home, but we kept busy watching The Office, Schitt’s Creek, and Tiger King and rocking out to T-Swift’s Folklore and Justin Bieber.
And, we learned:
Diana: that I can love something more than TGS and that is Farah :)
Jeanne: that anything can happen, literally anything. It was a year full of surprises and I am reminded how important it is to be flexible, resilient and how important a positive mindset is for your well being.
Katy: how important it is to consider others, even the strangers around you. You may not know what someone is going through but doing anything you can to make someone feel safe and comfortable and seen is so important.
Ann: how precious time with family and friends is and to consciously appreciate every moment of it!
Kristen: that patience is a virtue, good things come to those who WORK, and taking a mental-health day(s) is OK.
Sara: how to amuse myself while quarantining alone in my tiny apartment...I am quite a social person so this was quite a learning curve for me!
Julie: how to share my apartment with my boyfriend!
Josh: to be more confident and believe in myself more.
Alyssa: that I am going to be an Aunt in early 2021 :)
Megan: that it's gonna be alright. Even though at times, it isn't alright. That I have no control over the universe.
Amanda: that even if the world is difficult right now, there's always something to be happy about, like my new terrier mix puppy Oscar!
