2023 Reflections

The period between Christmas and New Year is a truly enchanting time of the year where the world takes on a magical quality. The cold winter days seem to blend together in a blur of holiday cheer, making it challenging to keep track of what day it is or what plans we have for the next day. Despite this, we find ourselves in high spirits, enjoying the warmth of the holiday season with our loved ones.

While basking in the holiday cheer, we've indulged in some of our favourite treats, like cheese, chocolates, and perhaps one too many glasses of wine. We feel slightly overwhelmed and overloaded from all the celebrations, but we eagerly anticipate ringing in the new year with our friends and family.

In the midst of all the celebrations, we are trying to be present in the moment and relish these priceless days with our children, who are currently on a break from school. With fewer responsibilities, we're spending quality time with them, creating memories that will last a lifetime. These memories are not big days out, but sitting around and watching films together, drinking hot chocolate and eating popcorn. However, the lack of sleep due to all the prepping and celebrating is starting to take its toll on us, leaving us feeling a tad drained.

Although we don't want this magical time of year to end, we miss the predictability that comes with school and regular working hours. The daily routine helps us stay on track and provides us with stability, which we crave even during the festive season.

This year has been an exceptional one for me since I launched Hues in March. Learning to manage my own business with a busy family life has been a challenging yet rewarding experience. I am grateful for the support I have received from my loved ones and supporters of Hues, which has been astounding. With the start of the new year, I am excited to see what 2024 has in store for me and my brand.

To achieve my goals, I have enlisted the help of a new business coach, and I am fortunate to have the support of groups like Mums Who Build and all of the wonderful women whom I have met. With their help, I hope to take Hues from strength to strength and keep building a brand that I am passionate about.

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! I am excited to see what the future holds and can't wait to embark on new adventures in 2024!
