Now, after 2 years in the retail biz in a small resort town, it was a good decision to focus back on why I even started Marmie. "Mother" comes first and having a family with 3 small children makes a retail business very difficult especially one that is just starting out. I give big kudos to all the Telluride locals who work so hard and have so many long days during the busy time and the months with no sales. That's why it is so important to support local businesses!!
Those of you who have known me a long time, will know that I will definitely not be sitting still. I am really looking forward to switching gears and helping expand my husband's business who will be moving into my space with his wood flooring. And you know that I'm a lover of handmade & local small businesses so you can expect to see my Pop-Up Markets in the future. I will always have my blog which is such a nice, soft place to come back to.
As far as my children, I will have more space for them and myself. Honestly, I am a bit unsettled feeling about it all. I had decided to homeschool my younger two but I haven't done anything to move forward with withdrawing them from school. I have been a bit torn about it all. This will be the first time in almost 12 years that I won't have a child at home with me (if I don't homeschool). It is an easy transition for some women but I am a little sad about it. And now that I am on the brink of my last day at Marmie Lingerie and getting so close for school to start, it feels like the future is wide open, and I am a nervously excited about the possibility of holding that open space for myself.
So here's to (raise your glasses) pretty lingerie, to fabulous women, to amazing bodies in all their glorious shapes, to all the working mamas, to unknown futures, to happily ever afters, to self-employment, to you and to me. Thanks for this incredible ride!
Looking forward to what's to come...
