It’s the Little Things

What a long week it has been. We closed last Sunday with hopes of moving an entire store in 1 day. I blame the sleep deprivation for making us believe we could. But alas, after 1 week(not day), we have moved everything out of our old space and have the new space coming along nicely. There is plenty left to do, but we have accomplished much thanks to our wonderful network of Super Heroes! I am hoping this week brings us Our new signs, some internet, a phone line and most importantly….some much needed sleep! This has been a very taxing journey and all of us are a little worn down.

It was all the little things that took the longest to move, set up and organize, but I have heard it said, on more than one occasion,  that they are what makes it all worth it! We hope you can find some time to drop by and see our new home. And I will try and find some time to post some more pictures of our journey along the way!

Tower of Babel

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

Growing Pains

If ever I am asked to make a guy understand giving birth, I would inform him that it is very much like moving this store. One would think that I wouldn’t find it so daunting since this isn’t my first time around the block, but like labor, one tends to forget the pain and suffering once that beautiful baby smiles up at you.

 Right now we are in the midst of a very intense “Labor of Love.” I believe I worked close to  80 hours in the store this past week and countless more at home. There’s lots of nervous excitement all around and back pain a plenty. I am torn between the active labor needing to be done in our current location and my urge to “nest” in the new space.

My feet are swollen, my moods are a-swinging, and I find myself experiencing exhaustion and insomnia at the same time. This is not for the weak my friends. But we move forward, knowing that soon, very soon, we will be face to face with our beautiful creation. Like proud new parents we will invite you all to come and see what miracle the universe entrusted to our keep. Soon, like a mantra, I repeat again and again, soon….and I breath. Deeply.

The Decision Made

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things,

because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Blessing for the New Year

May the new year bring
The warmth of home and hearth to you.
The cheer and goodwill of friends to you,
The hope of a childlike heart to you.
The joy of a thousand angels to you,
The love of the Son and God’s peace to you.
~ Irish Blessing ~
