I'm updating the calendar and going through pictures from last year. It has all gone by so fast due to my new little "Lavender Baby". I think an average age for a "Lavender Lady" running a lavender buisness is 45+. Forty Five and pretty much an Empty Nester with plenty of time to sew, cook and create. Right?
Me, I turned 30 (GASP) this year.
and I now have this cutie...
and couple of these..
.....and now, life is very, very, busy.
I wake up early (sometimes) and work on the computer. I stay up late (a lot of the time) to sew and label. I rely on my cell phone's voice mail to take a message because its my turn to teach preschool this week. I read the "Mom Blogs" on how to simplify life, meal planning and how to de clutter. I read short books like, "The E-Myth" for tips on running a small buisness and being successful. And I have to say, "No" to more and more things all to maintain sanity.
Do I sound distressed?
It is because I am...just a little. (smile)
So, we won't be attending the SLC Farmer's Market, the Ogden Farmer's Market, Simple Treasures, Kottage Kupboard - Mother's Day, Mutton Hollow, MS Event, Park Silly, or (hang on, this one is rough) Swiss Days 2014. (eeek!)
But don't worry, we will still be open this summer!
And do a couple boutiques (check the calendar).
And we will still have wand classes.
And just seeing this next picture brings peace to my soul. I can feel the warm air, smell the scent of lavender, hear the bees buzzing and my worries go away. Spring is just around the corner and I will see you soon.
