When Christian and I opened gather we joked that the store was our first baby. We worked for months to open up our dream space and then worked practically everyday that first year. It truly was a labor of love. 6 months after we celebrated our first year anniversary we welcomed our first son Hunter into the world and actually experienced parenthood and everything wonderful and crazy it entails. Hunter quickly became the shop's little mascot running all around the racks and quickly making fans. Later this month we welcome baby #2 and we couldn't be more excited. Our regulars have always been so lovely with Hunter and we know they will welcome our newest babe with love. We think about the shop constantly....it's our first baby! So if we aren't physically in the shop those first few weeks after the birth know that we are constantly working behind the scenes. Christian jokes that you can't keep me away for very long. We'll will be nesting but will make time for visits and then pretty soon you'll see us working away, baby in carrier behind the counter. We truly are a mom and pop shop!
Here are some pictures from a recent photo shoot we wanted to share! I'm wearing Passion Lilie, Christian is wearing One World Brothers, and Hunter is wearing Boro Boro. All fair trade and local small businesses that can be found in the shop!
