Happy December!! Can you believe it….December!!! Where has this year gone? I know we say that every year but 2018 truly seemed to go by in a blink of an eye.
It’s been a little while since I’ve jumped on the blog to say “hi” and thought theres no better time than now! For those of you that are new to our shop & blog…my name is Nicola Loewen and I’m the owner of Mad About Style.
We’ve been talking lots about 2018 as a whole and what it’s meant for our shop & family! It’s been a whirlwind of a year celebrating our little munchkins first birthday, starting her in full time day care ( insert ugly cry), moving, getting a killer warehouse space and diving right back in to all things MAD.
I know I’m not alone when I say that I find this time of year so challenging, especially being in retail. It’s hard to carve out time as a family and to create new traditions & memories when we’re flying all day, every day at the shop (thank you for loving us!!!). The season seems to slip away on us every year! This year, instead of making a gift list, I’m making a list of all the things I want to experience with our family. I feel like if I don’t make a list these next three weeks are going to fly by and we’ll miss some amazing memory making opportunities.
Yes, we run a clothing store and though we love helping you find those perfect pieces for that special someone in your life, consider giving the gift of an experience as well. No matter what you celebrate this time of year, making memories and experiencing old & new traditions with family and friends is priceless. It’s hard not to caught get up in the consumer world of the Holiday season but this year I’m really craving tradition for our little girl. I love watching her constant state of “wow” as she experiences this magical season. Just wait till she meets Santa this weekend!
My goal for 2018 was to ignite some fire, and set future goals and dreams for the team & shop. I’m happy to say we’re in the thick of planning some incredible ventures for 2019…..you’ll have to wait just a little while longer to find out what we’re scheming!!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for loving on Mad About Style and our MAD family!! As clients & fans you have truly built our community to something we never thought possible. We look forward to continuing that growth in 2019!!
