Oh the holidaze.......

I think I can vouch for many of the small business owners when I  say that the holidays can be so confusing and stressful. Do I offer discounts? Do I get gifts for my clients? Do I stock up on retail? Do I do an open house? Will anyone show up? UGH!!! We want it to be special, we want you to include us in your gift giving but we also want you to treat yourself to a little r&r.
I always enter the holidays with gusto. I LOVE the holidays. I may not always express that love and I may join in the bah humbug attitude now and then but at my core, I love it. I love the hustle and bustle. I love the decorations, the lights, the gatherings. The thoughtfulness that most people show (although I wish it lasted more than just through the holiday for some!) The food, the wine, the innocence in children and adults alike as they look in wonder at the magic. 
My mom and dad always made the holidays so special for us. It takes my mom more than one day to decorate her house. It is a wonderland and I can't get enough of it. The smell, the twinkle, the work that goes into it. The magic has never been lost on me. It has been 6 years since we have been there for Christmas and this year we are FINALLY going home. I get butterflies every time I think of my kids getting to experience the magic I grew up with. 
So, you can see how much pressure I might be putting on myself to make that magic transfer to my work. I want to put a little extra magic in it and be a part of your quest for the perfect gift. Or to wash away the stress of the season, or to make you glow for that holiday party. Unfortunately and fortunately, I already bring my A game to work. I can't put much more magic in what I already do. I don't want to offer up all of this amazing retail for gift giving and then have nothing to offer the rest of the year. I don't want to have the pressure of selling things to anyone. I want to continue to give you what I always give, my full attention and my magic hands. You can go buy gifts somewhere else. At Nurturing Esthetics you can escape all of that pressure and just BE! You can get a gift certificate in hopes of passing along that same magic to someone else but this year I am offering you the same sanctuary you have come to know and love. I'll add a little extra sparkle and I'll give you a discount in appreciation of your continued dedication to me and my business and because I know how stressful it can get financially this time of year so that could help ease your burden. I will offer sparkling beverages and there are sure to be treats. What I really want is to continue to be your place to relax and that is no different than any other time of year. Go out, paint the town, support all the amazing small business's around. I hope to be included in that and I hope to be able to show you  my gratitude through the holidays and all year round.
I am grateful to be doing what I do. I love it, it fills me up. I look forward to spreading that love...
