In case you haven’t heard, Garage Barre™ is turning two today. You probably should have heard by now because we are a *little* excited.
We’re so excited not just for the success we’ve had (humble brag much?) but because we’ve gotten to pulse, tone, laugh, cry, and share waaay too much information with some of the best babes around. And since I’m not a co-owner (this Kelsey coming at ya wassup wassup), I can humbly attest to the fact that Lacey and Kirby are some of the hardest workers out there. You guys don’t know all of the countless hours they’ve put into behind the scenes stuff and all of the sacrifices they’ve made. I’m pretty sure I don’t even know. Plus, the babes that they’ve brought on to lead— my fellow instructors— are some of the best, hard-working girls to carry their vision.
Okay, I’m done bragging about these girls because this is me right now:
I guess the point I’m making here is that we’re celebrating today because all of the hard work is yielding to making women truly feel great, and that’s the greatest present that we could ask for. Again, not going to make any pretense that I’m large-and-in-charge here, but I think I can speak for Kirby and Lacey when I say that every single hardship is worth it when we get told that one of our babes regained or found their confidence, belongs, or believes that they are enough. Our mission of accepting everyone regardless of budget, leggings, shape, ethnicity, or just all-around look has not strayed far from our hearts.
Now it's time for me to brag on you: you’re the reason that this is possible. You’ve been the first one to introduce yourself to an unfamiliar face, or make that new babe who is taking a giant leap out of her comfort zone to come to a barre class. You’ve jammed along with us at the barre. You’ve laughed at our jokes— well, mostly you’ve looked at us, but you let us tell the joke anyways. Probably most importantly, you’ve believed in us. THANK YOU *raises imaginary glass*.
Ugh I'm being hit with the feels so much that I'm about to cry at Kim Kardashian on the scale of 1 to Kim Kardashian.
