My first post

So here it is….my first blog & clearly I don’t even know where to start or how to write a blog. But I have been thinking about writing one since I decided to start up my own business & after speaking to my dear friend who is setting up my website & doing all the technical behind the scenes stuff for my website to function (I will refer to her as T2) – she also encouraged me to write a blog – because other mums out there might read it & become inspired to go out & do something for themselves too.

Hopefully I can inspire at least one person & if I do – that would be great. And hopefully I don’t bore the rest of you with whatever ramblings I might have to say here. But it is my blog & I guess, I can say whatever I want really.

So, maybe a bit of background about me would be the best way to start. I am a mother to one 2.5 year old girl, Little G – she is my heart & soul & I can not imagine my life without her in it! I actually can’t even remember what my husband & I did before she came into our lives in 2012? Oh that’s right, we used to go out to nice restaurants, meet up with friends for drinks, go out at whenever & wherever we wanted, sleep in on the weekends & had a lot of fun doing ‘couple’ things. Then Little G came along & things changed. Our priorities changed & our life became all about her & not about us anymore. This sort of sounds bad, but it really is actually fantastic because she is our creation & being a mother is the greatest gift! 

I am married to A & he is wonderful (admittedly, he is your standard male who doesn’t cook, iron, clean, do grocery shopping or any other household task & can’t usually find anything even when it is clearly right in front of him) but he loves me, is caring, honest, loyal, supportive, a family man, a wonderful father & an extremely hard worker - so I am lucky & so very grateful. I have a large family who I am very close with & I previously worked in the family business for 16 years before I went on maternity leave to have Little G. I had a demanding role, working 60-70 hours a week & honestly loved it. One day I would love to go back to work for the business – but I am just not ready yet.

So in the meantime whilst I am being a mother & putting my family first – which is my top priority, I wanted to do something to fulfil me, keep me sane, get me back into the workforce, keep me motivated & set myself some challenges. When I started to think about it more & more, I decided that I wanted to set up my own business where I could work from home & be a good role model for my daughter & other children that I want to have (down the track). While these thoughts were going through my head & I was trying to think of what I could possibly do, I was honestly getting confused more & more everyday with so many thoughts & plans - but there was no idea that really excited me.

Then one day a friend of mine had her second child & although I love flowers, I wanted to send her a gift. I searched online to find something unique & beautiful for her & couldn’t find anything that I was happy to send. I ended up finding something, which was ‘nice’ but I was not completely happy with it. It was this event that sparked this idea – I could create gift hampers with beautiful special items in them for delivery – for when you want to send someone a really special gift! And that was it! I was excited & motivated & thinking about how it was all going to come together & my brain just kept ticking away. I told my husband, decided upon a business name & the rest is history.

 So here I am, with MY little project – THE PERFECT PACKAGE. I plan to be up & running by June/July 2015. I have a lot of work to do until then….but I hope to make all of your lives easier by creating unique & special gift packages for all occasions, for delivery around Australia – just for you!
