Small Business Saturday | Get to Know Us

by Justin and Kathleen Smith November 25, 2014

In honor of SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY coming up in just a few days, we thought we'd take this opportunity to tell you more about the people behind SMILING TREE.

The Faces Behind Smiling Tree Toys + Home

Kathleen, Justin, Amana & Micah

That's us! We started SMILING TREE TOYS after the birth of our daughter, Amana. In the last year we not only grew our family by welcoming Micah just last December, but we also expanded the business into a line of items for the home, appropriately named SMILING TREE HOME! To learn more about Smiling Tree beginnings, check this out.

To give you a quick idea of what we do here at Smiling Tree, we created this handy graphic:

Wondering what life is like as a couple with two young children growing a business out of your home? Then be sure to read our "A Day in the Life" post. Things can get hectic, but we love everything about the business we created and the lifestyle we have. We are blessed to be able to work not only alongside each other, but with our children too. Is it easy chasing around a toddler and an infant, while also running a business? Of course not. Even still, we wouldn't have it any other way!

Remember the people behind your purchases, not only this SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY, but every time you shop! Thank you for supporting our family business and our vision. We couldn't do it without you. ♥
