Au Naturale Eye Essentials Kit

Six Years

Today is a day I have both been dreading and looking forward to, if that makes sense. It is very bittersweet.

I am so excited for my Trunk Show at Vintage Bliss today. Vintage Bliss is located at 30 North Avenue (which is Route 250) in Webster. I will be there with hundreds of pieces of my jewelry from Noon until 3:30pm. My 7 year old, Nicholas, may also be joining me. He wants to get dressed up and help. He is my master organizer. He likes to sort my jewelry by color and style and takes pride in doing so. He asked to come along and be my special assistant, so I just may take him up on that offer.

Part of me wishes I could skip over January 29th. Today marks the 6th anniversary of my dad's passing from Pancreatic Cancer. This day, along with his birthday in December, and Father's Day are always difficult days for me. I like to think that my dad will be looking down while I am at Vintage Bliss knowing that I have created a business that is very special to me and that I am happy. He gave me great advice as an adult.  He told me that something that was really important to him was for me (and my brother) to love what we do the way he loved being a newspaper editor. I can honestly say that being a wife, mom, blogger and making jewelry all fill my heart with joy.

While I'll allow myself to feel the emotions I am feeling, I am going to look on the bright side that it is going to be a fabulous time at the boutique and I am really looking forward to meeting so many of the local customers who have supported me through shopping with me online at at Vintage Bliss.

I hope you all have a beautiful day and I hope you can stop over this afternoon!
