I can’t believe the time of year has come again where my little shop is closed for Christmas. It seems only 2 minutes ago. All my Christmas fairs have now been done and dusted, and my last order has been delivered.
2019 has been a good year for Love Rebekka – I got my online shop set up so you can now order online wherever you are. I reached 1000 likes on my facebook page and I also launched lots of new items such as my little personalised signs, cork accessories and natural soaps.
At the start of 2019 I also passed my driving test which is very handy when it comes to delivering and posting out orders. Although my Mum and her little mini comes in handy most of the time as it means I don’t have the hassle of parking up and can jump in and out of the car on busy days.
I feel like this year has been a time of great achievement and growth but also a year of great sadness and change.
We had to say goodbye to my wonderful Grandad. My Grandad was loved by so many people and was quite possibly the worlds loveliest man. He would sit at my stalls, chat to absolutely anyone and everyone, and was always first to encourage and support me through everything. He would constantly reassure us every time we saw him how proud he was of all of us – which obviously is a lovely thing to hear.
I feel like if 2019 taught me anything, it’s probably that I’m much stronger than I originally thought. I never thought I could ever get through anything like losing my Grandad but I also know that if we all shut down and sat and cried forever he would be so upset with us. He always wanted to make people laugh and smile so I feel like the least we can do to honour him is to make sure we laugh and smile everyday for him. It’s also taught me that we have to appreciate what we have while we have it and to tell people how we’re feeling when we feel it. Instead of thinking how proud you are of someone, tell them. If you think someone looks nice, tell them, etc. I promise you something as small as that could make someones day.
I wanted to post on here to give you all a little update and to also tell you all how grateful I am for each and every one of you. Every like, share, comment means the world! I love making all of your orders and so much care goes in to each and everyone to make sure you love receiving them.
I will be back taking orders in the New Year and hopefully we’ll reach some more milestones in growing Love Rebekka too in 2020.
Make sure to celebrate the welcoming of a new year with your loved ones, and know that your lost loved ones will be with you too. Even though you may not see them you’ll be carrying them through to the New Year and all the future years to come in your heart.
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Here’s to 2020…
