I feel like it's time I finally give an update on Sloan and Co. and where I'm at with my shop.  I opened my shop almost two years ago and it has taken me places and grown in ways I couldn't have ever imagined.  I am eternally grateful for the support that my friends, family, and customers have shown me.  What a fun and exciting experience working in the handmade world has been!  I've gotten to meet so many amazing mamas and have had the opportunity to be a part of some really cool things because of my shop.

With all of that being said, I feel that I have outgrown my shop.  As my family has grown, it has left little time for Sloan and Co. (so basically I'm saying you can all blame Phayre ;) just kidding!).  I have learned that the only way to run my shop is at the expense of my children.  I cannot be the mother that I want to be and run a successful business.  There aren't enough hours in the day or enough of me.  I have SO much respect for the women who are running successful businesses (especially ones out of their homes!) and raising their children.  I don't know how they do it and apparently I'm not one who can.

If you're a parent, you know how incredibly fleeting time becomes once you have children.  I am painfully aware of time and how fast it's slipping away from me.  I don't ever want to look back and feel like I missed things because I was trying to run a business instead of holding, rocking, or playing with my babies.  It's a personal choice and one that I hope you can all understand and support.

So, I have decided to close my shop.  This was not an easy decision, but I know it's the right decision for my family.  I just restocked the shop for the last time and will be closing as soon as bracelets sell out.  All of the bracelets are ready to ship and will ship within three business days.  Please use code FAREWELL for 15% off!

I will continue to focus on my blog and you can always catch up with us on Instagram (@hellobabybrown) or snapchat (marisalately)!  I have started an Instagram account where I will be selling some of Sloan and Phayre's gently used clothing (@hellobabybrowncloset) and might post some bracelets on there when I get the urge to be creative!  Again, THANK YOU from the bottom of my very very full heart for supporting me, my shop, and my family.  I am so humbled and grateful.
