I've been dead tired these past few weeks, but it'll all be worth it soon. :) My sister and I have been running errands and attending meetings left and right. Why? Because our line, Coexist, is expanding! :) It's finally happening. I can't believe it! Coexist is going to have a store! Oh wait... not just one but 2! :)

We were actually just planning to open a headquarters/independent store for Coexist, but then an offer came (yes, the offer CAME to us. We are unbelievably lucky--considering we weren't really looking to open in a mall just yet), so long story short, we're opening 2 stores: our flagship store at Makati and a Coexist branch in a mall. Everything's just falling into place right now and I can not be more thankful with all the blessings that have come our way. But don't get me wrong, it was far from an easy ride. You won't believe how many times I've thought of giving up and just dropping everything. (My boyfriend became my emotional punching bag btw. Poor boyfie. He's such a Godsend.) Practically every step we took had some sort of problem/obstacle waiting. Something just always had to go wrong. But hey, what can I do? This is what I chose and this is what I love. I just have to constantly remind myself to believe IN us and to trust that this is what's right for us. All these snags come with the territory of starting your own business. No one said it would be easy anyway.

Looking back, I'm starting to think these problems are actually good learning experiences for us. And besides, the harder it gets, the sweeter the fruits right? I just hope everything goes well. I PRAY everything goes well. All this may be exciting news, but more than anything, it's also so so scary. :| Everything feels so real now.
