there are many aspects that go into this decision…let me start by what this actually means.
I AM NOT LEAVING.
i am not going anywhere. it’s my honor to be able to create products for our little ones and to use my voice to advocate for the safety of our little ones.
what prompted even the thought of taking a break was inventory.
the truth is i under-projected and, as a result, i could not keep up with all of the amazing sales this year. (for example meadow has been out of stock for months.)
while this is dream-come-true incredible, it also means there will be a short period of time where i run out of inventory, while we wait for the new inventory to arrive
so, with that small overlap, i thought... maybe this is my moment to finally take a break.
my other truth is... physically and mentally i am depleted. after doing this for ten years, i am f*cking tired.
there is so much pressure and so many expectations put on moms to juggle everything constantly and make it look easy. and that's what i've been trying to do. but it's just not possible.
i’m pouring into Olive from an empty cup. i am pouring into me from an empty cup. so, i am taking a break for me. a break to just be and exist.
i will be pausing the website for november and december. and in january, when i return, i will be coming back fully stocked with…
✨ Ollies (inlcuding Steele)
✨ THREE NEW COLORS for all products
✨ THREE NEW PRODUCTS
my purposeful break comes with an absolutely purposeful (and exciting) comeback.
there is still some inventory left on amazon and target, so you can still purchase there while supplies last.
again, please know, this is a short term pause. i will be back before you know it. also...i can't wait to show you the new colors!!
thank you for your support and always believing in me,
