The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For . . .

After months and months of photo shoots, emails, meetings, designing and editing (and more editing) – I’m jumping up and down with excitement that I finally get to present to you the premiere issue of Rue. It’s been a labor of love, our pride and joy and we worked our tushies off to get the best of the best into this first issue. I hope you devour each and every page we’ve put together.

Just have to say a few words . . .

To my team, each and every one of you has been amazing throughout this endeavor. We’re each others cheerleaders, supporters and most of all we’ve formed a bond faster than any other group I’ve worked with. We conquered our dreams and turned them into reality. Love you guys!

To my readers, thank you for being there cheering all of us on. You are the reason we keep going and going and going. Staying up all night to bring you this issue, all I could think about was all of you waiting with baited breath for the premiere issue. Here it is luvies – pull up a chair, get a glass of tea or wine and stay for awhile.

To my husband, what can I say – you are my rock. You’ve put up with my late nights, endless hours on the computer, an iPhone that doesn’t leave my hand and meals that suddenly went to strictly quesadillas. You support every single dream I have and were by my side this entire way. I love you honey!

To my family and friends, I promise that I will now return all of your phone calls, I’ll be able to go out to dinners, and be at every softball game – that is until we start issue two. Just kidding. Thank you for being there for me every step of the way. I think some of you thought I was crazy – day job, blog, and launching a magazine, but one of my dreams has come true. All of your texts, voicemails, and emails throughout these past few weeks have meant the world to me and kept me going. xo

All of you are the best! I hope you have as much fun pouring over the pages of Rue as we did creating this premiere issue. Enjoy!

xoxo, Caitlin
