I wake up each morning with total anticipation. Each day she seems to be doing something new and it's so exciting to watch. She's determined to learn and has to be a part of everything that I'm doing. Austyn could be passed out asleep in the car, but as soon as we walk into a store she's wide awake. Miss out on all the commotion, new smells, colors, and people watching? Not this girl. She plays hard and sleeps hard. Thank goodness for that sleeping part, otherwise I don't think I could keep up with her. Sometimes her super independent, restless, spitfire personality really scares the crap out of me. Then I think about how blessed I am to have such a curious, ambitious little girl who is healthy and loved by so many. What more could I ask for?!
If you follow me on Instagram then you have heard about my new exciting business called Blush Creek, a furniture and decor rental boutique for weddings and other special events in western Idaho. I have been so excited about this the last month or so that I have seriously lost sleep at night. The excitement can't be shut off! I'll be spending the summer building our inventory, which you can follow here, as well as creating a website, marketing materials, and research opportunities for advertising. I plan to start booking events maybe by the end of the year, but more likely early 2015. I'll have a post with more details on Blush Creek soon and look forward to sharing pictures of our new rental items!
Speaking of Instagram, I really like how Heather from Finding Beauty In The Ordinary calls it a "mini-blog". While it's great to come back here and create a more personal post and conversation, the quick and easy connection it provides is just plain awesome. In fact, I just realized I don't even call myself a blogger anymore. And I'm okay with that. It was a wonderful experience and fun chapter in my life, but the winds of change have swept through and my passions have led me elsewhere. I actually love this blog more now that I know I can stop in occasionally with a relaxed post like this one and then get back to my other responsibilities. And as a small business owner, local furniture store vendor, wife, and stay at home mom, I sure have plenty of other responsibilities!
I hope you all are doing well and that Spring is starting to show up on your doorsteps, happy Tuesday!
