Who's Behind The Curtain?
We are a husband and wife team with 3 employees (aka 2 cats and a dog) who do absolutely nothing to help this business grow, except look cute, and provide us with snuggles.
Matt, works full time at Quicken Loans, and helps out with Nine 16 as much as he can (he's the numbers guy, so he runs everything behind the scenes). Shannon (me), tackles this biz full time, while doing the wife thing, and the fur mom thing!
In the summer of 2017, Matt and I were diagnosed with infertility, and have been going through treatments to try and build a family. This is a struggle that I would never wish upon anybody, and I have learned so much about what it is, what it means, and what can be done. We make a point to come up with designs and styles that women and couples in the TTC (trying to conceive) community can relate to, and we want to do as much as we can to help out, and spread awareness.
We live in Oxford, Michigan and came up with the idea to start this business quite some time ago, but didn't have the faith in ourselves that it was something we could really do. We took the leap, and here we are...overwhelmed with the support we've received since launching!
We love the Detroit Lions. We love country music. We love spontaneous trips up north. We love brewery hopping. We love each other. That's all you really need in life right? Football, music, spontaneity, booze and love!
