Have you noticed as you grow older the faster time goes by? I remember 
as a little girl a year felt like forever. Now a year flies by and I
 can’t believe where the time has gone.
 Last April at this time we 
walked to the edge of a cliff and we have been flying high ever since! 
Risking to go out on our own was a major life changing decision. 
Last April we made it a 
reality.

Sometimes I think we’re dreaming, at other times I wonder why we 
didn’t do it sooner. I know it may sound cliche but 
everything happens for a reason. Every experience leads down a path 
and prepares you for your next adventure even if in the moment you can’t
 truly see the meaning in it all. All I do know is, Alicia and I were meant to meet that cold day in December 2007. We weren’t sure where we were headed but we knew we were in it together!  ( insert dance break) 

One year ago we were ripping up carpets, ordering flooring, purchasing equipment and painting. It was the most exciting, scary, exhilarating time for us.

One thing we have always recognized is how lucky we are to have the
 most amazing clients a studio could ask for. We definitely have broken 
out of the mold of your traditional Pilates studio. You all have supported our journey with your enthusiasm and need to be beaten..:) We are family at TONE and would not have it any other way.

Looking back over this year, even though we were scared shitless we knew this was a risk we had to take.

Sometimes you get into a routine, you begin to feel safe and secure and you forget what life is really all about.  We realize no job or relationship is worth suffering for. At the end of the night if you are not happy then maybe it’s time for a change. There have been so many wonderful memories for us here @ TONE. We can still make each other laugh even when we are tired and hungry and writing this blog. 🙂 Who knew we were going to be writing a blog!!! Not these girls!!!!! ( insert jazz hands)

Change can be scary, risk it all or gain nothing. What do you want to change? Are you willing to walk to the cliff?
 “You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.”

Bottom line we are grateful, are hearts are full and we look forward to another year together. We wouldn’t be here without some truly amazing people who have been our support.  Special thanks and gratitude to the two best hubbies in the world, Kenny and Jose for dealing with us day in and day out. Momma Cohen, Aunt Mara, Uncle John, for giving us the chutzpah to fly!
