Grateful for Our Fans: Erin Surprises Military Wife!

In honor of an adopting an “attitude of gratitude” this Thanksgiving week, I’d like to share a story that highlights one of the biggest blessings in my life: YOU all, (or should i say, “Y’ALL”) the EC fans!

Though it’s been over ten years since I started this business, I am still blown away by just how amazing our fans truly are. I regularly receive letters, e-mails, and stories from all sorts of people explaining how much their organizational items have helped them, and on the days when I am feeling particularly stressed, I am reminded by these fans why my work is important and valuable.

So when a blogger by the named of Haute in Texas wrote me saying her friend and neighbor Melissa, a military wife and lifetime Erin Condren fan, deserved to be honored for all that she does, it was a no-brainer! We surprised her at the location of our soon-to-be retail store at The Domain, in Austin, TX, and her reaction is everything I hoped for!

 Needless to say, is is the energy and strength of women like Melissa (and all of our fans) that push me and my team to keep creating. Meeting Melissa, her daughter, and husband that serves our country was honestly one of the greatest highlights of this year. I am eternally grateful to them and all of you who have appreciated and supported my entrepreneurial journey. It’s been a rollercoaster at times, thanks for being along for the ride!
