*sigh* It’s nice to be back. Really nice. As I mentioned in a previous post that was published a while ago, I recently started working retail in a local antiques store. I really loved working there-I loved the people I worked with, the customers, and the products. I enjoyed helping people find the perfect gift for the hard to shop for friend or relative.
What I didn’t love, was the time. Specifically, I didn’t love taking time away from Just for Littles and my fabulously wonderful customers. Many hours were spent enjoying my time working but wishing I was working to fulfill my own dreams.
I am so blessed to have a fabulous partner who not only supports me in this decision-he saw it coming weeks before I did. I sat down with Devin (the bf) and had a frank, honest discussion-one of the hardest of my life-telling him how I felt I was on the wrong path and, while I enjoyed what I was doing, I wasn’t as happy as I could be. And he said, “I know.”
“What do you mean?” I asked. “I’ve seen it on your face. You miss doing Just for Littles full time. And it’s okay! Go back to it!”
Am I lucky, or what?
So I’m back, 100%! Chasing my dreams and loving every minute of it! But this time, things will be a little different. I want to be MORE involved with everyone-fans, friends, customers, everyone-through Facebook, Twitter, this blog, on the street, wherever! If you see me around, stop me and say HI! I want to get to know YOU!
The focus of my blog is also changing slightly. You’ll still get awesome Just for Littles info on sales, new items and general goings ons. But I want to embrace some of my other life loves-especially handmade shops! I am such a fan of my fellow handmade shop owners, I’m going to share them with you, too! You should also expect to see more posts about me, my thoughts and outlooks and who knows? I hope you enjoy the changes coming–I know I will!!
So for my first blog post back, I want to know something unique about you! ANYTHING-you were in marching band in HS, you can touch your nose with your tongue, you’re a descendant of Martha Washington-what makes you unique?
