ETSY SHOP VACATION – {Happy Anniversary, Love!}

The Etsy shop will be on vacation from today until next Wednesday!

{March 22nd-March 30th}

This week is my 6 year anniversary with my sweet and wonderful hubby. We met one afternoon eight years ago while spending the day with mutual friends, and when I left to go home that evening, he called a friend and declared “I just met the girl I am going to marry”. I guess he knew what he was talking about, as 2 years later, we were married.

He has stood by and supported me with his whole heart while I follow my dreams, even though it takes a lot of time away from him. We have two small children and between them and the business, there isn’t always a lot left to give at the end of the day. Any of you moms know just what I am saying….the poor hubbys get the short end of the stick. After all, your kids NEED you, your clients NEED you, but that sweet guy over there, he can fend for himself! (and he does without complaint, because he knows I am living my dream).

So, this year for our anniversary, we are giving each other the most important gift of all, and the only thing we really “need”ย  – time. A week to be exact. We are both taking the week off – off work, off the world wide web, even off of parenting duty thanks to my parents….we are taking the week off of the rest of the world to give each other TIME – time to chat, time to laugh, time to catch up on adult conversation (I am hoping to avoid diaper talk too!!).

I don’t think there is a better gift to give someone you love, than your time. Your full focus, attention, and time to enjoy the day.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and I truly hope it doesn’t cause any. Taking a whole week away from my business, when I KNOW it will shut down without me is a HUGE HUGE deal! It makes me scared, nervous, and highly anxious….after all this business is my baby too. But, if anyone deserves my full attention this week, it’s the man I married who has made all of my dreams come true.

Now, you will see a post or two I am setting up before hand, AND because I have had the great fortune to bring on a wonderful woman to help me with emails and client coordinating, someone will STILL be checking email and able to post on FB in my absence. I will be introducing her after the break (for those of you who haven’t already corresponded with her! ) and I know you will love her as much as I do!

{Truth is, I still have some things to get caught up on…so I will be around today and tomorrow via email and www, but after that…I am going to fight tooth and nail to avoid the www at all costs until next week!}
