8 years past... on to a new chapter~

i write this post with tears welling up in my eyes, but knowing that change is hard, good or bad.  

after only being married 10 months, my new hubby & i decided to take all of our savings & buy a flower shop:)  now 8 years later, it was the best hair brained idea we ever had!  but a lot has changed in that time & now 2 houses, 2 kids & 2 dogs later... it has just all become too much for me!  my now not so new hubby wanted to do something that HE was a little more "needed" in the work place & i need to support him.  even if it means giving up the store.  i know it is the best thing for my family, i guess i'm just scared!  scared that i am giving up on what i am good at, scared that i will feel a whole in my creative spirit & most of all sad about the people i will miss that i have built friendships with through bloomer's.  even though the future is unknown, i  can't wait to see what it holds & i am so grateful for the amazing things i was able to do... all because of a little flower shop!


**also, if you live close~ we will start our inventory liquidation tomorrow, August 15th @ 10:00 am.  everything will be 50% off... & if you come in i promise i won't cry!

I agree you are good at everything. I know I don't know you...just through reading your amazing blog, but every time I read about what you are doing or see all your fun crafts...I can't help but wonder how you do it all! You must really have it together as a mom, wife, friend, etc...

Good luck to your new future!

I'm sorry I had to work today. Change is hard. It really is. I hope your future endeavors bring you as much and more joy.

Brit, my initial thought was "What the... ?!!?" But really...I think you guys will do just fine. There are just some people out there who will find a way to succeed no matter what... and you happen to be part of that select group.

Still, even though I can't believe how different it will be for you, I have a feeling that somehow you will find that creative outlet in your new chapter. How is Oopsie Daisy, by the way? And if all else fails, PHOTOGRAPHY!

We sure have some good memories from that little flower shop; it will be really sad not to see it anymore.
