This has been a busy year for Fleur, filled with expansion both in our retail boutique and our studio location, lots of personal growth and always learning new way to make our designs and offerings better for all our beloved guests. There was a lot to be thankful for this past weekend. I'm a little reflective today after the holiday (Thanksgiving happens to be my favorite). On Wednesday night we unexpectedly found out that my brother needed a pacemaker and bright and early Thanksgiving morning he was given one. As an avid runner (He runs marathons) it was quite the surprise, and we were all thrilled when we heard that it went well and he's already feeling better. Saturday night my Dad and Sister in Law were in a car accident after a chain of crashes ended up hitting them. My sister in law broke her wrist and my Dad's car is totaled, but thankfully that is all that happened.
Thanksgiving was sandwiched between these two stressful events, and sitting here on my morning off work with a cup of coffee in my hand and my husband by my side I'm so incredibly grateful for my family.
I wanted to share a few photos of our Thanksgiving dinner table, and in case you didn't see my Instagram post, I wanted to retire a very important message to all of you.
I'm so thankful for all the love and support from our Logan Square neighbors and beyond. For all the couples who trust myself and my team to be a part of their celebrations. And so thankful and grateful to my team who inspire me every day with all their love, dedication & creativity (& tolerate my totally type A craziness).
As the holiday season approaches, I hope we're all reminded to slow down a little, take deep breaths and be kind to those around us.
