Good morning and happy(ish) Monday! The rain has just about washed us away, but we're trudging along. As some of you know, we have been renovating a new location since January 1st. I am so excited to share it with all of you. My dad is my hero - we 100% wouldn't have it EXACTLY how we want it without him. This week, we are slapping some paint on the walls and next week we are MOVING IN! Our grand re-opening will be on March 14, 2020.
Now let's be REAL for a moment. This has been CHALLENGING. In the first quarter of the year, we have completely renovated our storefront. We went over budget. We went over our timeline. I have completely renovated a house before and remember this feeling all too well. FEAR and SO MUCH OF IT. Countless hours of planning and re-budgeting and shifting and crying and questioning, but in the end - it always works out.
It is bittersweet to leave our little house behind - our very first storefront - where so many memories were made. We plan to take a picture of it and have it framed in the new space. We are so very fortunate to have had such an AMAZING landlord - Mr. Bradberry - and such a sweet USPS delivery guy - Jeremy. The relationships we have built will be cherished and never forgotten. Underneath the excitement, there is a deep layer of sadness. I will miss our sweet little storefront some days, but the reality is... we were CRAMMED and our day to day tasks became that much more difficult.
We are excited to have new space to work in and grateful for new opportunities. I still don't know how we pulled it off. Most days I ask myself "How is this even possible?" and the answer always remains the same. It wasn't ME, it was HIM. So thank YOU God, my higher power, the universe for your abundance and blessings. When I am in fear, I know you will draw close to me and keep me.
See you all on March 14 !
