In the glowing world of Illuminate Apothecary, filled with soothing fragrances and the warm touch of our candles, there’s a light that shines perhaps even brighter. It’s not a product or a scent. It’s the love, care, and unwavering support of my husband, Patrick - my not-so-secret secret co-worker, my partner in life and in business, and honestly, my hero.
You see, I do most of the day-to-day operations. From making the products to labeling and packing, it’s usually me behind the scenes. But none of this would be possible without Patrick’s presence. While I’m still working on taking accountability for my success (and I’ll get there someday), the truth is, Illuminate Apothecary wouldn’t be what it is today without him.
Patrick is more than a support system. He’s an extension of my strength, a guiding force that steps in whenever I encounter any challenges. And on launch nights? Oh, how he steps up! With grace and determination, he makes everything run smoothly, adding that extra spark that makes every launch unforgettable.
But it’s not just about the business. It’s about our journey, intertwined in love and mutual respect. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in life. Patrick’s belief in me, his understanding of my dreams, and his unwavering support have not only shaped Illuminate Apothecary but have also shaped me as a person.
As we continue to grow, I know that with Patrick by my side, there’s no limit to what we can achieve. He’s not just my hero; he’s our hero. Here’s to many more candles lit, many more dreams fulfilled, and above all, a love that continues to Illuminate Love in our lives and in everything we create.
