Today, Page Turner, one journey ends; tomorrow, a brand new adventure begins. I am awed by your bravery to chase after a life long dream, and I am hopeful that this journey will bring you the same level of happiness and fulfillment that your venture will bring to the lives of those who visit your store. Remember that all great things can be achieved with little more than a dream, determination, and dedication.
I thought this quote from Ronald Reagan seemed appropriate for someone about to open a candy shop:
"Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music."
Here's to your success, to finding your purpose in bringing joy to the main street of our little hometown, to enjoying the sound of a shop filled with laughter and conversation. As you have supported me and my family over the years, I will happily return the favor as you set out on this new endeavor.
Best of luck to you, Page Turner! May every day at Coco's be a choreographed masterpiece to the soundtrack of a sweet song.
