I will be 50 this coming June.
The reality is that the last few years have been a bit more of a burden than a joy.
Not that we've been without joys, it's just that the other has seemed to enjoy the spotlight a bit more.
For so many reasons.
You've all been there, I don't need to explain.
I love, I adore my shop. Wait, it's not the shop, it's the customers and friends I have made throughout the years that have been so very kind and supportive. Frankly, if that's all there was, that would be enough.
A while back, I actually wondered what it would be like to close Viva la Cottage.
It sure would take some pressure off of me!
At that very scary moment of "what if", I decided I needed to shut up and turn off.
Just be quiet and listen.
(I was going to say an "A-Ha" moment, but we'll leave that to Oprah)
I am going to bring my game back.
This, which will set us up for 2013.
Over the top... for all of us.
