They never said it would be easy… They didn’t lie

There are mornings I am laying in bed before the alarm goes off that I just sit there, almost counting my quiet seconds. Enjoying my bliss. I consider just getting up anyway and getting a run in before the crazy begins, but don’t worry I normally talk myself out of it. After that alarm the day is nothing short of a blur. I get the kids ready, drop the, off at their respective schools work my 8 hour day, make dinner and before I know it, it’s bedtime again and I am exhausted. Being a parent no matter how you’re doing it, it’s not easy! Just like you I search for time for myself, I savor my 5 minutes alone when I can get it, it’s not easy… But it’s worth it.

Its worth it when they call your name, when they tell you their stories. Treasure those moments, write them down and enjoy them again and again. I do everything I can to have time with my babies before they get too old to want to have time with their weird mom. I’ll be posting here as often as I can so you can see our weird, and my life. What I’m doing to try and work from home, and sometimes totally randomness. Join me, laugh at me, let me follow you and let’s do this craziness together!

 

 

 

 

“It’s in the Details”

What is in the details? Perfect execution. While I research companies and styles that I would love to feature in my boutique I think about all of the little things that I want to represent. I want to have a brand I am proud of, something that the people around me can be proud of too. While I do want to bring in brands and clothing from other countries, I want to know where the clothes are being made, and by who.

The very thought of finding what I want and what other people would like is daunting. There are so many options and products, how do you choose just a few?

In my research, and some personal experience I have found the following to be true. I hope these help. If you have anything to add, contributions are always welcome : )

1. What Styles?
There are so many unique styles and although you want a store that has a little diversity, you do not want too much diversity. It is good to be able to attract more than just one type of customer, but if you are too scattered you won’t be able to have a GREAT market for what you have to offer, people will be too confused on what they are there for

2. Listing out all the brands I want
I may not be able to get every company I want. At first anyway, but I can always get my foot in the door.

3. Finding the best way to order.
How much product is the right amount. You don’t want to always be out of product, but you also don’t want to have so much that you’re losing money in product that does not move
