A Giggliciousy Autumn

Isn’t life grand?  Ryan and I have wiled away the autumn days, nestled in our wool scarves, trying in vein to keep away the chill.  We happily sip hot tea as we sit in our adirondack chairs, all the while, observing with intense joy, the golden leaves falling one by one into our perfectly manicured yard.  So sorry, but the calmness and stillness of our days have prevented us from even letting you know what we are up to.


Of course, it’s all mostly malarky, except this:

  • I am wearing a scarf.  I always do.
  • We have watched leaves falling when we happen to look out our windows.
  • I am drinking lots of hot tea.

  • Beautiful autumn days aren’t to blame for our belated update, but Gigglicious, soccer, school and raising kids IS.

There hasn’t been one whit of tranquility happening at this address in years–and that’s just how we like it.  We are, thankfully, very busy and the to-do list is very long.

And . . . we need to get back to it, so here is an abbreviated Gigglicious update:

  • Reactorz is available online and is now in 300 SuperTarget stores.  We have a coveted spot on an end-cap in the sports balls area, so go check them out.   Swimways has completely supported this item and is moving at full steam to ensure that the Reactorz line has a bright future.
  • We are in development on an item that should be on store shelves this spring/early summer.  It generally takes a year and a half to get an item on store shelves.  This item will go through manufacturing and shipping in 4 months and be on shelves in around 8 months.  Can’t wait to tell you all about it soon.
  • Ryan has loved his new office all summer.  I like waving to him out the window and taking the ten steps to tell him it’s lunchtime.

We have been blessed with amazing opportunities this year.  We have taken on more product development jobs than ever and are fortunate that 2016 will mark the most licenses we have sold in one year.  We are scrapping to make smart, worthwhile product for mass market consumers and it’s a battle everyday.  We are grateful to experience every peak and valley, sometimes even in the same day, with the adventure known as Gigglicious.

Happy fall!
