The New Year is a time for new beginnings, new dreams, new loves, new laughs, new friends, sometimes new family and always new adventures!
My husband has been telling me FOR.E.VER to start a blog on our website so today is the day!
Maybe I should start by introducing myself.
Hello! My name is Nicole. I am a daughter of the KIng, my Lord and Savior. I’m a wife to an amazing man, pastor and hunter. I’m a mommy of three of the cutest kiddos! I am a shop owner, I will always be a cheerleader (after cheering/coaching for most of my life) and although I call myself a runner… you may beg the differ if you actually see me run HAHA!
My husband Nate and I opened Luv Cole Boutique on October 21, 2016. It had been a dream of mine to open a boutique so after about a year of heavy discussion and research we jumped in with both feet. How did we start? We opened our website >> www.luvcoleboutique.com
I told Nate that I would NEVER have a brick and mortar store. “It’s just not my thing” I told him.
Then July 6, 2017 we opened in our first B&M little shop on Washington Street. It was small but just perfect for us starting out. I remember many friends and customers saying to me, “Wouldn’t it be great if you could be on the main square in downtown Pella”. I would smile and nod but that was so far fetched. There were no available places and for sure nothing in a price range for a small business owner.
However, by Christmas 2017 places were becoming available and by the New Year (yes, just one year ago) we had an agreement to move to the basement of a furniture store in downtown Pella. In February 2018 we moved to the lower level of what was Boats. It was a good move for us however we were still hidden from most.
Then it happened… in June 2018....we bought a building! We are now located right in the middle of downtown Pella! Also, we have a window! If you have stopped by and talked with me about our move I have probably mentioned the window to you. But never having a window to look out at checkout will cause much excitement when you all of a sudden have a big one!
That was a lot of change in one year and we are so excited to see what God has in store for us this year.
We want to thank each of you for your support over the years. We thank God for his faithfulness and for the unexpected surprises along the way. Wishing all of you blessing on your New Year!
