Whew, what a crazy, busy last few weeks! From November 9 to 26 I was rarely home! In that two and a half weeks I:
had four days of vendor shows, including three setup-and-takedowns
taught reading to kindergarteners for four days,
drove to Kentucky and back (7 hours one way) to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family for two days,
and then worked again on Monday.
By Tuesday I was almost comatose! Let’s just say that this old(er) passionista was draaaaaaging her heels!
So the days I didn’t work I took naps. That’s my go-to self-care. And if I don’t take care of myself I’m no good to anyone, especially my kiddos.
If you remember, I am the only parent of two special needs teens. So it’s a bit high-maintenance at times, but they have come sooo far! Traveling with them has gotten so much easier! I now pack about half of what I had to before. Yay! Marking off those milestones!
Good news: my sales at the vendor shows were pretty good. I’m so thankful! I sold twenty-eight (28!!!) of my calendars. So excited that the words and affirmations will be helping people all year to remember their worth, their fabulous-ness, and that they are amazing. It’s just such a rush to know I am helping people. If you would like a reminder of the calendar, (I wrote about it recently here) watch this.
If you’d like your own calendar of affirmations, go to my shop here.
And right now there is a 20% OFF code!
My most favorite thing about the vendor shows was talking to the people who stopped by my booth. I met some very interesting people!
One of the common threads of our conversations was that we all need to be encouraged, lifted up, and filled with positivity. That’s one reason I love what I do! Many people talked about how happy my booth made them feel. That everything was so cheerful and colorful. And I’m glad people felt that way, because I do too! I like that people were drawn to my booth. This world needs us to be a shining light that dispels the darkness. I’m doing that!
So today I got my trees up from the basement. Does that count as Christmas decorating? Not sure how much I’ll get done this year. I so love the look of my decorations, but do not care for the work of putting it all out. Where is that Samantha of Bewitched fame when you need her? Wish I could just wiggle my nose!
Well, I hear my bed calling my name.
I hope you have a great week ahead. May all your Christmas lights stay lit!!
Big hugs and sparkles,
