Hi Hi. It’s been quite a while since you’ve seen a post here. And while I don’t usually post personal things here, my personal life is tied to what I have to share with you. . I’ve had this post drafted up for some time now [like a month!], but I’ve had a HARD hard time getting myself to actually post it because I have some sad news.. . I am closing this lovely little shop of mine:( . It was such a tough and grueling decision; since September things have been really really difficult, which will lead up to some life changes for me and my family. I found out I was pregnant with my third baby and while becoming a momma to another little human was not in my “plan”, it happened and a baby boy is joining our lot (#singhpartyoffive). The pregnancy has been incredibly hard on me both physically and emotionally and I don’t think I have ever been so low a times [except for when I lost my dad]. . What this means for the shop is that I don’t have the capacity to keep it going:( Prior to baby news, I had been struggling a lot with weather the shop was the right place for me. [I guess sometimes life just pushes you on a path when you can’t find your way] I’ve had a BLAST running Love This for the past 5 years. Getting to know and make an impact on all of YOU and this ever growing ethical/sustainable community has been such a dream come true. THANK YOU for allowing the space for Love This to bloom, grow and be supported. Also, I would have been so alone if not for the small business community in RVA, it is such a gem, and I am so honored to have met, collaborated, talked, cried and laughed with so many of you as we “entreprenured” together. [Much love @4mber for starting the Love This dream with me and to an amazing mentor, @socialventurer , whom I credit to the growth of me and Love This on the journey]. To my family, geez, this whole gig would never have worked out if not for all your help. THANK YOU! for allowing me to dream and soar. . I don’t know what the future holds [I am very uncomfortable about this], but I do know I will always be advocating for the ethical/sustainable movement! . Follow me @sustainablyrupa , I plan on sharing more there, if I don’t chicken out.
✨Happy New Year! ✨THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL 2018! #topnine2018
