Well it’s been a while…July 28, 2018
Wow! It’s sure been a LONG time since we added to our blog! Sorry!
Anyways we are getting back on the blogging horse and plan on being more consistent. We will write about jewellery, fashion, community, travel, basically a variety of things. If you have any ideas of things you’d like for us to write about we are open to suggestions!
Myself, Naomi Selvaraja-Fossett will be doing most of the blogging, however I look forward to having different Lanka employees, jewellery colleagues and friends from different industries also share on our blog.
As some of you may know 2018 has been a tough year for our family. Sandra Selvaraja, Ken’s wife (the owner of Lanka), and mine and my brother’s (Nathan) Mum passed away very unexpectedly May 14th. She was the rock of our family and even though she didn’t work in the store, she was a huge part of Lanka Jewels from behind the scenes. It’s been a tough two and a half months for us all but we know that Mum would want us to carry on. So I guess for me getting the blog up a running again is one way to do that.
We look forward to finishing off 2018 strong and are extremely excited for 2019 as Lanka Jewels will be celebrating 40 years in business! A very proud achievement for my Dad (Ken) and something we couldn’t have done without the support of our community, our wonderful customers, and our incredible staff!
Please stay tuned for my next post:)
PS the photo I chose is the last family photo we took just 8 days before Mum passed away. She loved our family very much, and wanted us to spend us much time together as possible. She loved to travel and see the world, but one of her favorite places to take us all was Disneyland and we were very blessed to have a week as a family there just before her sudden passing.
