I been slacking on my blog lately and feeling bad about it. However I have had a good reason. My sales are crazy for christmas. The photo above is really the only picture I had time to take in between all of the crazyness. That is one day worth of packages and every day for the past couple of days it has been like this. Don't get me wrong, I am ecstatic about it! However I forgot how long it takes to just package items. That load took around 5 hours with the help of Justin and no break.
Then again I never really had to handle a load like this yet so it's been a real eye opener to what's to come if I plan to expand my little business. If only every month was like December has been so far or even like November. I mean I am totally shocked but I was preparing for this in the downtime. My siblings thought I was crazy collecting all my supplies in such great quantities like I was preparing for the end of times. The truth is I really wasn't that prepared. Everything is about gone.... let me say it again... it's unreal!
As for life in general my boyfriend lost his job so we are depending on me to make money. It's been stressful and kept me from enjoying the success of sales. I also have big things to plan for soon so it's been just as crazy. I feel blessed in every way though. I know god must be watching over me to let me have this little bit of success so that we can keep a roof over our heads and food on the table.
I will say that I am so happy and grateful to everyone who has made a purchase from run2thewild or just left a sweet message. I love what I am doing and I just keep dreaming of the future. I just keep repeating my goals, dreams and hopes to myself. I was actually thinking about sharing them with you all if your interested. It's not like I haven't told everyone else I encounter. I don't want anything to get in the way of me and my big dream and I won't let it happen either.
So yeah I am super excited for new year and I can't wait to get a breather and plan for the future of Run2theWild.
PS To celebrate I am planning a big wonderful giveaway to be announced at the end of this week so keep your eyes peeled!!
