When I look deep inside, past all the stress of the end-of-semester assignments that were due this week and the anxiousness of officially opening up for business, complete joy and gratitude are the feelings that overflow from my heart. Tonight is the eve of the first ever trunk show of The Flossy Peach Boutique. From the overwhelming support of close family and friends, to the physical and mental labor that my loved ones put into this event, I could not feel more grateful and blessed.
The joy, while sweet and welcomed, does not take away the nerves. I have two big fears: Either no one will show up, or on the contrary, so many people will show up that I run out of inventory! Of course, I’d prefer the second of the two. Whatever happens, I know this is the start of something great. The relatively smooth process of turning my dreams and interests into an all-too-quick reality has created a peace for me that assures me I am designing a life I will love. As Thanksgiving draws near, I am the most thankful for those that I love, who without hesitation, put their trust in me to begin this journey and jumped right in to help make it happen. I will forever be indebted to them.
I truly am beyond excited to share this journey with the world. Probably the most rewarding thing to me is seeing a customer happy in a new piece of clothing. My goal of this blog is to not only share the journey I’m in, but to educate and encourage readers and customers about the beautiful world of fashion and my take on it all.
Most importantly, I am thankful for the love and tenderness bestowed on me from The Lord. Without Him, none of this would be possible. “Give thanks to The Lord, for He is good. His steadfast love endures forever”. Psalm 107:1
Thank you for joining me in this new journey.
