Putting Things in Perspective

Things are really busy here at PipesandCigars.com. Thanks to you, our customers, we’re having a record-setting year, but along with sending out all those packages, we have to reorder, prepare catalogs, make deals for specials…well, you get the idea. In addition to all that, we’ll be bringing out more than 50 new products that we’ve either created ourselves, or had a hand in creating. It gets overwhelming at times, and we often lose our perspective as to what’s important. Not today, though.

This morning I received a text from Kevin G, our pipe guru, who often writes posts here. He let me know that this morning he became a father for the first time. Of course, we’re all thrilled for Kevin and his wife, and we’ve gotten to see a picture of his beautiful daughter.

Now, we hope you know that we love to bring you a great selection of products, special deals, and we enjoy coming up with new ideas, but when something like the birth of a child happens, it clarifies priorities. I’m sure it won’t be too long before Kevin’s back here, working as hard as he always does, but we understand if at the moment he’s a little distracted. Please join us in congratulating him.
