Three years ago today, late on the evening of December 3rd, 2009, we "flipped the switch" and Makaboo went live.

In one sense it feels like millenia ago; in the 1000 or so days since then, my mother beat not one but two bouts of breast cancer, my father was diagnosed with dementia, and my husband's sister bravely survived a horrific accident at the hands of a drunk driver. During the same 1000 days, we welcomed three more nieces and nephews into our extended family, and learned that we were expecting a little one ourselves. In March of 2012, I both welcomed our son Walt into the world AND closed on Makaboo's first round of outside funding.

So, it's been a dizzingly busy few years.

To the thousands of people across the country and world who have chosen Makaboo to help mark a special occasion, and to the countless little ones who snuggle up to a Boo each night, thank you so much for letting us be a little part of your lives. We hope we're around for a long, long time, and that the next three years are as thrilling as the last! turns 3!
