Too be honest 2016 has not started off very great for me with my 20 year marriage coming to a sudden end and my becoming a full time single parent for the winter season... It has been a struggle to come up with something to write about on this blog and with a very lenient (on myself) one blog a month rule I feel like I should be able to come up with something on the last day of the month...But I haven't.... But I do want to say that as I'm getting through this transition period I now find I have so much more to look forward to in life, whereas just a month ago at the end of 2015 I wouldn't let myself think about the future more than a week in advance, the endless possibilities awaiting me now for a happier life are almost overwhelming sometimes....
Savonnerie de L'Estrie had an impressive Christmas season so thank you to all of my wonderful, loyal customers who support me and appreciate what my business is all about!! I am coming up with at least two new products this year (an all natural and very effective creamy deodorant, and a soothing stick eye balm), and replenishing stocks that have gotten quite low in the boutiques that I sell in, and with increasing responsibility at Farfelu and the 'Quoi de neuf" artisan sale I am managing to keep myself quite busy.
So once again Happy New Year, I'm sure my next blog post will be much cheerier to read!
