These last few weeks I've been keeping busy around the house - ordering stock, scouring flea markets, staging, and photographing some things for the shop. I decided to finally take some of the stress off and pay a designer to build me a website with a full shopping cart, so I can focus on the parts of this business that inspired me to start it in the first place.
This week I've been working on a lookbook - a little peek into bringing the outdoors in and creating natural, simple, and inexpensive looks for your home.
With every bit of this journey into a new career, I am finding exciting new transitions into where I will take the shop. I can't wait to see where this will go over the next few years, and what I can do as this all grows and finally pieces together to build a dream I've held tight for a very long time.
But for the record, starting a new career while you still have your old one, while you're 9 months pregnant, putting together a nursery, and still trying to keep up with your day to day maybe wasn't the best idea :)
Last night I had a minute (or ten) of crying on the kitchen floor. It was my first and hopefully last breakdown of 2011. Sometimes a moment to feel sorry for yourself is all you need as a reminder that things aren't so bad, after all.
Happy Spring, lovelies. After a long, dark Winter, it is finally time for new life.
