Happy Birthday Cloud 9!

Cloud 9 turned three years old on October 15th.

As you might have guessed, there were clouds everywhere -- cloud-shaped cookies, clouds on the birthday cake, and we even had cloud-shaped crayons and cloud coloring books that we made as party favors for the kids!

Yes, we went all out.  But hey, you only turn three once, right?

I want to thank everyone who stopped by to be a part of our celebration.  Anytime anyone asks, I always say the very best part of my job in interacting with people.  I have met so many wonderful people through Cloud 9.  I have gotten to watch families grow and children grow up.  It is a magical time in any family's life, and I am so blessed to get to be a small part of it.

Cloud 9 was born on Bank street in 2010, though we were originally located in the 500 block, next to Tammy Eddy Antiques.  We have always loved it here on Bank Street -- the history, the stately old buildings, and the delightful and unique atmosphere it all creates.  We wouldn't want to be anyplace else!

Something that is very important to us is giving back.  Having a business gives us a platform, a larger voice than an individual.  And being a children's store, helping needy children for Christmas seemed like a natural fit.

This year, between our birthday (October 15th) and December 2nd, for every $100 spent at Cloud 9 (online and in-store), we will donate a new toy to the Neighborhood Christian Center which will benefit needy children in our community this Christmas season.

The Neighborhood Christian Center is located right here on Bank Street, too.  I chose to support the NCC because I believe they work hard to support the Decatur area, a community that has helped me grow Cloud 9 to where it is today.

I want to thank each and every one of our customers for a wonderful three years!  I am grateful each day for every single one of you.  One thing's for certain:  Without you, we wouldn't be here.
