So blessed...

That's how I am feeling today! I have always gotten what I have wanted in life. I guess you could call me "lucky", or "blessed", or if you are cynical, maybe you might call me "spoiled". I prefer the first two!

1. My first goal after leaving my parents was to complete a degree- Check!

2. I wanted to find a fabulous husband that would treat me with respect and love me forever- check, check! :)

3. I wanted kids, but not only that, I wanted to be a stay at home mom... mission accomplished!

4. I have always wanted to successful at my own business- semi check- UNTIL TODAY!!!!!

Today I had a meeting with the owner of The Funky Monkey in Keller, TX! It is the coolest, hippest boutique I have ever graced with my presence! :) SO... a few weeks ago Amanda and I were in there and the owner saw me wearing a piece of my jewelry. She asked about it. I told her I had made it. She asked to set up a meeting with me, and now MY jewelry is going to be sold in her boutique!!!! AMAZING!!!! So, now my number 4 goal is going to be checked off! YEAH! So... here is what will be sold in The Funky Monkey ... my new fine silver customized jewelery, and my photo pendants. All of these items will still be available in my etsy shop as well at THE FUNKY MONKEY!!!! Check out the website, it is so cute! By the way, thank you to all of my friends and family that have been so encouraging. You have all helped me build my confidence, and for that, I am so thankful! I love you!
