2012. Two thousand twelve. It doesn’t matter how I write it, I love the look and sound of the new year. Never mind the Mayans or anyone else who has a bad word to say about it. I have a good feeling about this one. For the first time ever, I’ve been able to write cheques and letters without putting the wrong year down.
I’ve got my resolutions in order, both personal and business. This year, we’ll celebrate our 23rd year in business. That’s a lot of babyTrekkers. Thanks to all our former and present customers for your letters, photos and funny stories. I’ve been blessed by all of you. There is something wonderful about having a business that connects a person to others around the planet. I love that fact that people on every continent have worn and loved the babyTrekker. For those of you unfamiliar with our Canadian carrier, let me give you a few facts.
The babyTrekkers are made with love and care, one at a time. We purchase our organic cotton through an American company, use American made buckles and foam. Everything else, including the manufacturing, comes from Canada. We pay attention to the details, and we like to get things right. If we don’t, we make it right for our customers who somehow, over the years, have come to feel like old friends.
This is the year that I celebrate, you, the customer. I salute you, my friends, for undertaking the precious, overwhelming and ongoing task of parenting. I honor your quest to be the best mom and dad you can be, and for making a place for the babyTrekker in your family’s story. I pray that this is the best year ever, for you, for me, for all of us who share this amazing planet. God bless you all and have a great 2012.
