When you own a boutique or work in retail in general this week is something we prepare for all year long. The week of for me, is an exhilarating mix of no sleep, nervousness, excitement followed by long hours and stress.I want it to be perfect for you and so much thought and attention goes into every last little detail. In that mix, I'm just a Mom trying to enjoy her children home from school and preparing for a feast to share with family and friends over gratitude and blessings. The day before will be a late night for me, ensuring everything is properly in it's place and ready to launch Friday Morning. I will come home exhausted but use that last little bit of energy to begin prepping side dishes, desserts, and a breakfast casserole for the ones I love so that Thursday I can finish up and attempt to relax and enjoy the day with my family.
I absolutely love what I do and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Thank you for loving my store, supporting me, and keeping us going. I owe it all to you and God and I am so very grateful and humbled to be on this journey.
I hope each of you has a wonderful, joyful Thanksgiving.
