Why I do what I do… ♥

strawberry-story-600

Hey there,


As a business owner, it’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day activities of running a business and lose sight of why you launched a business in the first place. It’s so important to give yourself some “marinating” time each week to think about your business and ask for support. This time last week, I was fortunate to attend a business conference where I was able to surround myself with amazing business owners, form deeper friendships and share with my story.
We all have a unique gift to share with the world and my father inspired me to do just that. Here’s to following your dreams. love.gift.smile.
Seven years ago, I opened a store called Pink Olive. Not only was it the most rewarding risk I have ever taken, but it was also the most unexpected. It’s easy to assume that the idea of opening a gift shop had been my plan all along since the idea of giving a thoughtful gift always came naturally to me. The truth is, I never thought I would leave my job as a successful fashion buyer for Bloomingdale’s, Saks and Barney’s.  As someone who excelled as a buyer in the fashion industry, it took stepping out of my comfort zone to realize my true passion: inspiring people to give and create a beautiful living.

I’ve always loved the idea of giving (and getting!) gifts from someone special. There is something amazing that happens when you live your life in a place of appreciation and gratitude. Gift-giving becomes a gift in and of itself. There are few greater joys in my life than knowing that I am surrounded by people who would take the time to give a gift that is meaningful to only me. My father was a great gifter and a big inspiration to me.

strawberrybaggift My story...

When I was five years old, he gave me the perfect gift. What was inside that beautifully wrapped gift box was an adorable strawberry-shaped bag. It was whimsical and fun, and I couldn’t have asked for a better gift for my kindergarten graduation. He showed me how giving a thoughtful gift can make someone smile and make them feel loved. Life is about creating those moments with people you love, and I want people to experience this feeling… everyday.


Pink Olive is more than just your ordinary gift shop. It’s a creative place with a mission to inspire giving and beautiful living. After all, life is too short to not enjoy life’s special moments.

Are you following your passion in life? Do you have a strawberry story?
