#thisweek Our Biggest Announcement Yet

Posted by Simply Pallets on

Hello everyone! I have to tell you, I am SO EXCITED to write this post today!

First of all, if you missed our biggest announcement EVER last week- WE ARE EXPECTING! We waited way too long to share so we could tell some family and friends in person, and as of this coming Monday I am 17 weeks along. So in case you are thinking of my last blog (where I got called out for complaining), YES, it did have something to do with being pregnant. Luckily I am past the tired part and feeling amazing! Better yet, I swear our site won't suddenly turn into a pregnancy blog with nothing but nursery items (okay, maybe a few more nursery items). 

The other big thing happening this week is catching up. We went through a ton of back and forth before we left about whether or not to close the shop during our vacation. The last few months have been really busy, and with how I was feeling I just really wanted a break. But we didn't close and it all worked out! I always forget that we have had practice balancing the work and fun. We got to thoroughly enjoy our vacation while still accepting orders and keeping in touch with all of you!

That being said, we drove back from Maine to North Carolina on Wednesday and yesterday was craziness! We plan to work straight through the weekend so if you placed an order with us and your shipping date is approaching please know it will be out soon. We sincerely appreciate the patience and understanding we have received as we get back into our groove.

Last but not least, I wanted to touch on something that really hit me this trip. We had an absolutely incredible vacation. We saw the beach family and got to catch up on and share stories while making new memories. We got to spend time with family and have our lobster dinner and do all the wonderful things that happen in Maine every year for 10 whole days! Yet despite our break from reality at the end of the trip we weren't sad to go home. We arrived to a stuffy house with overgrown weeds everywhere we looked, but we were okay. This is the first year we have gotten to come home to...well... a home. I guess this trip just made me realize that we are settled and happy and I feel so incredibly lucky and thankful for it all. I cannot wait to bring a little boy or girl into the mix! 

 

Okay, so that's it for this week. We will be continuing to work hard and should have some new listings including our brand new Christmas decor up in the next few weeks so we will keep you posted. I know some people already had their eyes on our ornaments and I cannot wait to reveal the new designs!

 

Have a great weekend, everyone! Happy Friday!

Alyssa
