THE PURPLE PEAR IS SAYING GOOD-BYE
I want to take this time to thank all of my wonderful customers that have helped support and grow my business over these past few years. I have met so many great people, and I appreciate all of you so much! When I started The Purple Pear, it was with the intention to be able to have the best of both worlds: work from home, and be able to spend more time with my family. As the business has become increasingly busy, I am finding this to be less and less the case. I am physically home, but I have less time than ever to spend with my children and husband. For over 3 years, in addition to being a full-time wife and mother, I have singlehandedly managed every aspect of the business, including baking, delivering, answering the phone, responding to emails, ordering, and bookkeeping. It is a tremendous amount of work for just one person. So, as excited as I am that my business is growing so rapidly, I am faced with a very difficult choice: expand my business to include employees to help with the work load, or say good-bye to the Pear.This decision has not come easily, and not without many sleepless nights of soul searching. In the end, sometimes the right thing is not the easiest thing. As of May 1st, I will not be taking any further orders. Those of you who have already placed orders for events after that date, you are still all set! I will definitely honor any obligations I have. I am saddened to close this chapter but I am so excited to see where the next one will lead!
Much love and gratitude,
