Let Summer Begin!

My children had their last day of school yesterday, which means in our home Summer has officially begun. As a mom working part-time at two jobs, I hated leaving home to go to work today while they got to sleep in (which between sports activities and other things the kids have going on, hasn't happened at our home in a while!). I secretly envy them getting to sleep in and think back to the days when I was in school and things seemed so much simpler!

Another change that has come with Summer has been my decision to downsize my business from two booths at two local antique malls to one. I was sad to make this decision as the one that I am leaving I really love being at as much as I like being at the other one. Things may change and I may return back to the antique mall but needed to make a change that made my life simpler. I plan to continue to search for ways to keep my business growing and productive while still keeping my sanity.

My new endeavor for the next few weeks is decluttering the house and getting ready for a yard sale that my neighbors and friends and I are working on having in a few weeks. I am excited as I am so ready to have less junk! I am so ready to part with some things that I have been hanging on to for a few years....or more. I am also excited as we are in the planning stages of remodeling our home. The thought of working on it and making it more our own is so exciting!
