Well, after writing a seriously touching and poignant post (I thought) about the imperfections in life, I decided to change my 31 days topic.
It’s not that I didn’t want to write about those beautiful imperfections, but my brain and my heart is pretty occupied with opening the shop right now. I’m excited by it, terrified of it, intimidated, thrilled, nervous, inspired.
Because of this, and because a ton of Facebook votes, I’m changing my topic…
It’s lofty at this point, but I would LOVE to open the shop/studio on November 1. That gives me roughly 31 days to get it ALL done. And there’s a LOT to do. I thought it would be a blast to share all of the ins and outs, the ups and downs of getting this place going.
What do you say??
I’m not sure it will actually happen in 31 days…we are waiting on several things from the landlord, etc. that are totally out of our control. BUT….we did get a key today.
And that means I can begin the work I need to get done. Or, more accurately, the work that Natalie, Anna Lauson, (sometimes) Matt, and I need to get done.
inside the shop, before. some of you have asked: yes, the clothes are from the old shop–all leaving us.
It’s actually really exciting to me to share it all with you–this will simply be another part of this online journal that is our life.
So thankful to have each of you along for the ride!
