A very personal post…
As some of you have noticed, my blogging and social media activity has been sporadic over the last few years. Shortly after celebrating ten fabulous years of setting up and running accessory business Olivier Laudus with my now ex-husband, we decided to separate and the last few years have been all about the messy business of divorcing both personally and professionally as well as rebuilding our lives.
Even when on the surface a separation is amicable, it has still been one of the saddest and unsettling periods of my life, and particularly frightening being in my forties!
And having to walk away from a business I had co-founded, loved and nurtured like a child, has been heart-wrenching.
So what’s next…
Enjoying every day and appreciating the gifts life has to offer, while pursuing my passion for business development and marketing, and growing this blog, which is going to become a Luxury Lifestyle Blog and shortly be having a fantastic makeover – watch this space!
I hope to stay in touch with the amazing people I have met whilst working in the wedding industry, and look forward to showcasing lots of you wonderfully talented people in the wedding section in my new-look new blog! As well as featuring some of the fabulous new places and people I get to meet in my daily life and new job.
And last but not least, I wish my ex-husband Olivier all the very best for the future and much success for the business.
We received the Decree Absolute, the legal document that ends our marriage, this week, fairly poignant as its just a week before what would have been our 15th wedding anniversary, but also in a way perfectly timed to receive it during Easter, a time for hope, renewal and rebirth.
Here’s to a bright future and new chapter …
