Wow, it’s been a month!
Where to start? For those of you that have been with us for a while, you know we put out small updates from time to time on how the business is progressing & a bit about the team behind the scenes.
We’ve got quite a few bits to share! Firstly, myself & Laura took our first real break for the first time in some 3 years (since launching PP) and made a trip over to California in mid-March. Mike bravely stepped up to the plate & covered the load while we were away, with me being able to do bits remotely each morning. Thankfully all seemed to go incredibly smoothly!
But a little something more than perhaps Laura expected happened in Cali – me & Laura got engaged!
After 7 years together, 18 months of working together & living together, I finally popped the question & she said yes!
Being in California gave us a fantastic chance to celebrate with my brother & his wife (living in San Diego and that we haven’t had the opportunity to see in 5 years!?) before flying home!
Unfortunately, on our return we got met with the devastating news that a very close family member is fighting her second battle with the dreaded c-word; diagnosed while we were away.
Probably needless to say, it’s been a whirlwind of emotions these past few weeks for all of us. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to attend multiple hospital appointments & support this person as best I possibly can to get it gone, with both Mike & Laura doing a fantastic job of taking the reins day-to-day at PP.
Primarily, I wanted to take this opportunity to explain & apologise if we’ve been quiet or a little slower to respond these last few weeks. I’ve honestly been struggling to get my head back in the right place, but I can promise you this small family business is utterly dedicated to serving our incredibly loyal customer base.
We appreciate you guys more than you know – we’re all too aware of how short life can be & what it means to really be there to serve each & every individual as exactly that: an individual. We would not be here without you all supporting this small business! We know you have the option to shop elsewhere, but the fact you choose us each & every time means the absolute world to us. It fuels us to continue doing better by you!
If you have any questions whatsoever or if we’ve missed something or any other comments, please drop them in the comments below or DM us :)
All the very best to you all!
