Bring on 2020 I say! I am ready to slay!
So as you are probably aware, I am still in the very first year of our business (and just over the first year of motherhood) and learning so much. I would firstly like to say a big, huge, gigantic, tremendous thank you to all of you who have been following my journey into the big wide world of business and motherhood. I could not have reached my goals without your unconditional and genuine love and support. Without you, my little business would not have grown into the blooming business it is. I truly appreciate having you all beside me and encouraging me to keep plugging away at it. Mamas, you are such a big inspiration to me, my brand and what it represents. You are, #Mumming The Label. You are what my brand represents and I cannot thank you enough for jumping on board and sticking out this journey with me. #Legend
With that said, it's time to talk about what's in store for 2020 with #Mumming The Label and myself! If you are not already aware, I got engaged to my beautiful, kind and caring fiancée, Matt, in October 2019, and we couldn't be happier! Matt is my rock, my love, the father of my son and my biggest supporter. He really pushed me to get out there and make it happen with #Mumming The Label. He could see the potential in me and my idea and wanted to see my dream succeed.
Whenever I had a hard day and felt like the world was ending - both as a Mum and in my business - he was always there to pick me up, dust me off, give me a tight hug and whisper "It's all going to be ok, you got this. I know its hard now, but all that means is when the 'good' comes, it's going to better than just the 'good' and you will truly appreciate it when it happens. You will be humbled, not just thankful" and you know what, he's right.
Taking in the bad and making what you can of it, just doubles the genuine feeling of gratefulness you have when the good does come along. You can truly appreciate the good times and that, is so important. Celebrate all milestones, both big and small. Do a happy dance. Have a glass (or bottle) of wine. Crank the tunes up and dance your butt off like no-ones watching. Be you. Be proud. You've earned it. And that's what Matt has instilled in me and I am so happy to have him by my side, not just our parenthood journey, but throughout my journey into #Mumming The Label.
I feel so blessed to have such a supportive and loving man by my side and I can't wait for us to be "officially" married. We plan on getting married in Oct 2020 in a very small - almost eloping style - wedding. We really don't want the big white wedding, it's just not who we are. So we are currently working through some of the finer details about what we want, which is still proving to be quite, time consuming, but what wedding planning isn't? With that said, it's definitely been a busy few months, but all worth it in the end.
We have had a busy November & December with quite a few new people coming on board as Brand Enthusiasts and blogger collaborations, to help promote the brand and show the love. Which has been amazing too, by the way! I have been so humbled and beautifully overwhelmed by the amount of support that's been coming through over these past 2 months, it's phenomenal and I am truly grateful. A special thank you to Marissa, Courtney, Alexis and Hayley that have officially come on board, I couldn't do what I am doing without you and your support and love for my brand. A big thank you to everyone who is following along via our social accounts and a massive thank you to all of you that are apart of the Mum Squad as well, you are all so important to me and to my brand, without you and your support I wouldn't have anyone to share this journey with.
So with the last 2 months of 2019 addressed, it's time to talk about 2020 and what's in store! So as mentioned before, we've had some lovely support from B.E and bloggers collaborating with us, there is always room for more! I have been working on some new things for my Enthusiasts that will begin in 2020 and I can't wait to get started and share with you all! I have had a few Mamas reach out that are also interested in jumping on board in the new year, so stay tuned! If you are interested in joining in with our Brand Enthusiasts and becoming one yourself, please reach out via our socials or you can email me. I've always got room for more mamas and I'd be delighted to have you on board.
There is also another big surprise coming later in the year! (No, I'm not expecting again haha) I was approached and asked to be a part of something AWESOME... In Melbourne... In the fashion world... In September 2020!!! O.M.G I am so excited! That's all I can share for now! I can't give too much away, but what I can say is, it is very humbling, exciting and also kind of a big deal, so stay tuned for more once 2020 arrives and this AWESOME thing approaches! I'm one very proud mama!
Thank - you so much for reading, for supporting and following my journey with #Mumming The Label. I hope you have enjoyed following along and continue to do so, as the best is yet to come and next year is going to bigger and more exciting! I can't wait to share it all with you!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Stay safe and safe travels over the holiday period.
Much love to you all,
