I have grown to love the antipodean Christmas, amidst much protest from my Irish siblings about it being all wrong. I now see the warming days, the blossoming hydrangeas and the pohutukawa flowers as a sign that it’s time to rest, rejuvenate and get ready for the year ahead.
This year I am so looking forward to the time off because it’s been the maddest year ever – mad in a good way, of course!
I’ve been amazed, inspired, surprised, challenged … my first full year of Agnes&Me is the hardest and best thing I’ve ever done, especially as I never planned to do this so as far as comfort zones go I’m in another country.
I’m forever grateful for the people who pushed me in this direction. I’ve met fabulous people who have supported me, listened to me,advised me and worked with me and of course, bought from me. I have made so many new friends who constantly enrich this new life of mine.
Thank you for your part in this journey and I really hope you will be with us in 2019.
In the meantime, there’s still a few days left in 2018 and if you need your Agnes&Me fix over the holidays, the last day for ordering before Christmas is December 18.
We can’t dispatch any orders until January 9th as we will be sitting by a lake in the South Island, chilling out.
Merry Christmas and happy restful holidays.
