What a year it has been! We’re looking forward to kicking off another great holiday season with our Zummo’s family. As most of you know, that starts in October for us.
When you look back on years in the past, what do you feel? Excitement? Nostalgia? Maybe even, a bit of sadness? All of these emotions are completely relatable and quite honestly, normal. It can be overwhelming and stressful when the seasons change and you begin preparing for the months ahead.
Our advice to break the cycle of constant planning, organizing, and communication? Take a break. Grab a coffee and some homemade soup. Enjoy each and every moment of the changing seasons, and do something for yourself.
You’ll be hearing from us much more, and we love to hear from you. Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Another year in the books. We are so happy that we got to spend it with you.
Although it truly isn’t possible to put into words just how thankful we are to have such amazing customers, I’m going to try.
Having a place away from home that you can feel so comfortable is something that we’ve all taken a second to appreciate here at the shop. We realize every single day the quality of the people that come through our door. We have made lasting connections with so many of our customers, and we truly consider you our friends.
To our regular customers both old and new- thank you for making us part of your day. You know who you are, and we all know your orders by heart. Please understand how much you mean to us.
And to everyone who has stepped through our door this past year, you have given us so much. On behalf of the entire Zummo’s staff, we thank you tremendously. Without you we wouldn’t be able to do what we love.
It’s November. We have successfully completed 10 of the 12 months in 2017. Let that sink in! Be it a great year or a not so great year, the next 2 months are going to be better than ever. Celebrate with us.
This month you will be forced to ask yourself what you’re thankful for. It’s a loaded question- do you take the generic route and say “my family, my friends, my job”, the funny route and say “my dashing good looks”, or the serious route with “my health and the love of the people around me”?
I think we’ve all been in a position where we weren’t quite sure what to be thankful for, but I challenge you to look at the small things and dig deeper. Think about the things that let you breathe a sigh of relief or make you giggle. Be thankful for the way your dogs ears go to the side when he’s confused. Be thankful for your neighbor who brings in the garbage cans every Thursday. Be thankful for just enough milk at the end of the gallon to enjoy your cereal in the morning.
See, the thing is, life can sometimes turn into one big blob of major events and melancholy days. When we take a second to look at the small things and give a mental “thank you”, we begin to live in the present. So this month, take a second when someone asks you the infamous “What are you thankful for?”, and think about the little things that happen everyday that you just might miss if they weren’t there.
In other news, we’re doing all of your Thanksgiving baking for you! You can take all the credit, too. Take a look at the order form and come visit the shop to fill one out. You’re welcome in advance.
All sarcasm and dry humor aside, we are so extremely thankful to all of our customers and staff for the incredible experiences we’ve had together this year. We look forward to spending a happy holiday with you.
Finally, here’s the cutest picture you’ll ever see. This was taken at our PAWrade – the dog costume contest and parade we had last month. The pup is from Laura’s Hope Rescue, and the boy is straight from heaven. Actually, they’re both straight from heaven. Enjoy!
