My 2020 Business Gratitude List:
1. I'm still here. My business has (almost) survived the most stressful year it's ever seen. This was not easy and didn't happen without literal buckets full of tears, but we're here and I couldn't be more grateful.
2. My customers - big and small. This year I saw you step up and send care packages to loved ones during unknown times. I saw employers create custom candles for their teams to help bring some light to hard days. I saw you all rally and contribute to causes that are helping to make the world brighter. While this support means the world for my business, seeing the good in the world through your acts of kindness is good for my soul and I'm grateful to have a front-row seat to such happiness.
3. My team + partners. I wouldn't have made it through this year without my small and mighty team at the warehouse helping to prep, pour, and package up the thousands of candles that went out the door this year. I also feel so supported by the vendors and other partners that also help keep this boat afloat. Special shoutout to Be Peachie (who took these photos, and most of my photos TBH) for being my right-hand when it comes to marketing.
Whatever this Thanksgiving looks like, I hope it's filled with a moment of gratitude for all we've been through this year - and lots of yummy food.
And stay tuned Friday for a round-up of all the fun Black Friday happenings around here!
