Being grateful

Gabrielle Newkirk

'Tis the season to celebrate what we have.  What we are grateful for.  What we cherish.  This year I have learned so much about what it means to be human.  How to be me.  Losing a job I loved made me realize how tough I am, how I need to push through the pain in order to feel steady.  Losing a lot was scary but pushing through was necessary and makes me ME.  I am so grateful for every single thing that got me to this point.  Creating my dream job is so rewarding, something I had not expected to do at this point in the game but sometimes life gives you the shove you didn't know you needed.  The best part about my job is the people I get to know just by opening up my doors every single morning.  The Collective is a collaborative experience.  I strive to create not only a beautiful, well-curated store but community as well.  The people I know and don't know, who walk through these doors with clothing, stories, accessories, witty things to say ALL make my day.  Thank you for coming and celebrating each day with me.  Have a merry and bright holiday season.
