A New Season for Sugarhouse Stationery

Seven years! I can’t believe how fast time flies. And, it’s already been over two months since we’ve been in our new house. It’s time for a much needed update….

About six months after graduating from college, I moved up to Burlington, Vermont to pursue my dream of working for Burton Snowboards. Fast forward six years; I lived in 6 different apartments (yes…), my husband and I got married, bought our first home, and made amazing, long-lasting friendships. Then, year seven hit and it was time for a change. My husband and I sold our beloved home, and moved about 2 hours south to Manchester, NH. It was so emotional! I felt excited, angry, sad, hopeful, hopeless, stressed, ready, totally not ready. Even though we physically moved over seven times before, this felt so much bigger for so many different reasons. New state, new house, new jobs, new neighborhood; the list goes on and on.

In terms of my business, Sugarhouse Stationery; at first I was worried. I thought that moving this tiny baby business could potentially make it crumble. But, the more research and preparation I did, the more I found kind, supportive, and motivated small business people just like me in southern New Hampshire. I reached out and made some contacts so that upon my arrival, I could settle in and meet some fresh faces. I’ve started to integrate into this creative community and it is bustling with positive vibes. This made me so hopeful for the future of my business that all I feel now is excitement. Also, being close to Boston, Maine, Cape Cod, and the White Mountains makes me so excited. I cannot wait to make even more friends in the wedding industry to help couples getting married in these locations.

Even though I miss Vermont; I know I’ll go back and visit often. It’s still so close and easy to escape to! I am looking at this move as a new season for my business. I have beautiful new products that I hope you’ll enjoy, I have a new home office that I love spending time in every day, and I have a brand new website that I hope you’ll browse! I’m hopeful for the future!

More soon,
