Best laid plans

My blog post this week was going to be about what’s left in my offline sale, and not my holiday wishes…at least not so soon. But life has a way of turning things upside down in a moment’s notice.

So instead I’m going to wish you a safe, calm, and relaxing time with family and friends this holiday season no matter how and when you celebrate.

Hustle and bustle of the holidays

It’s hard not to get swept up in the busyness of the holiday season. Finding the perfect gifts in crowded stores with long lineups and exhausted, overworked staff. Keep that in mind and be kind. Be kind to yourself and others.

Waiting extra minutes in a lineup that you don’t have time for, or not finding that sought after gift for someone you love, is not going to matter in the grand scheme of life.

Savour the small moments

Savour all the small moments because that’s what makes up the fabric of our lives. The grandiose big achievement moments should be celebrated but the small everyday moments are there to be savoured.

Hug your loved ones and tell them you love them. Say it out loud. We always think there’s time. But you never know what tomorrow will bring.

Thank you

To all of you, I extend a great big heartfelt thank you for being here and supporting a local woman-owned small business. I’m truly grateful and wish you and yours all the best for the holidays and a happy healthy new year!

P.S. If you’re looking for a last minute gift and you’re in the Ottawa area, my online store is open 24/7. Use coupon code MOVINGSALE to get an extra 25% off. And there are still some offline specials to be had here.

Warm wishes from our family to yours,

~ Colleen xoxo
