It is with a heavy heart and a little excitement for what is next, and with the support and encouragement of my family, that I have decided to retire and therefore close the shop.

It was a dream. And for ten years I was able to go to a place I love and do what I love. To all of you who walked through my door, you have shared your stories of laughter and celebration, of tears and apologies, of thank-yous and appreciation, of love and my favourite, "just because." What a privelege that has been!

Thank you. To my friends old and new, I could not have done this without you. To my family, what an exciting year it will be!
