So…this just might be the hardest blog post I have ever had to write.
After almost five years of following through on a dream, I have decided to close Love, Me. This past Spring I made the decision to not resign this lease and to move locations. But…as other that search began to prove unfruitful, and an offer to sublet my current lease came up, I jumped on it. It was/is a crazy fast decision that felt really quite perfect.
Love, Me Boutique will be closed to the public at 5pm on Saturday, June 23.
I want to take a brief moment and thank each and every one of you who has made an impact on the store and my experience as a shop owner. Every chat, every smile, every “ooh” and “ahh”, every “this store is the best!”, every “I brought you a coffee/cupcake/cookie/muffin to keep you going” – it has made this part of my life memorable. I thank you for allowing me to be a part of your days, your self-treats, your special gifting strategies for loved ones. The part I will miss the most is chatting with you all – hearing about your kids antics, your plans for the holidays, or what you are working on next. I loved sharing stories with you. Thank you.
So what of Love, Me now? My plan is to take the summer to hang out with my kids. Having two young children and running a business solo is…busy. (HA! Busyness.) I am going to enjoy my kids and the summer and then re-evaluate in the fall. For now I am moving items back to their artist owners and selling off props and some stock, and looking forward to a new adventure – the World is my Tea Cup Adventure.
So come by (until the 23rd), say “see you later” (not goodbye), and stock up on some gift items for the gift closet. (You DO have a gift closet, don’t you?) Stay tuned on Facebook or Twitter for any other additional news.
