My decision came easy....but there was a spark of regret.
After this decision became final....my heart pounded out of my chest.
That was a week ago.
Today....I'm so ready again my heart is pounding out of my chest.
I decided to close my little business.
Simple Dimple Primitives came to life April 2007. A dream, put on paper with the assistance of my business advisor Football Superstar and my partner Gracie.
A little red cottage was transformed from ugly duckling to adorable prim style swan.
Perfect location for this business. Directly outside my door- sitting on the edge of our property.
And our property sits in the midst of antique shops and gift shops near historic Gettysburg.
What big plans we had for Simple Dimple Primitives. Huge! We were going to be so huge there would come a time for us to purchase the one room school house that sits beside our property and create Simple Dimple Vintage! Yeah yeah..... well then comes the big bad wolf-
Economy. With this economy we are all effected by- my little business suffered from lack of sales, lack of traffic from tourist and too much inventory.
So, my last day in the biz will be September 11th. The next huge in Simple Dimple is a closing out sale. A huge closing out sale. Feel free to stop by if you live close by.... you can begin your Holiday shopping by saving $$!!
Like Kathleen Kelly You've Got Mail I will be just fine. New adventures will be coming my our way. We are now moving forward.
Football Superstar is working on a career change. I am ready to return to work.
Our children are doing fine. We may have a move on the horizon.
We have no idea what's around the corner for us.... but one thing I do know is that today- tonight I will go watch my Freckle Boy play one heck of a football game. I'm proud to say he was moved up to second string varsity. I will cheer China Doll while she plays "middy" on the field hockey turf. And I'm proud to say she was given the title "Team Captain".
Apple Cheeks, of course is not on any sports team....but her number 5's are looking fantastic!
These troubled moments of decisions have brought Football Superstar and I even closer.
What can rip apart couples, families and business partners has made us stronger.
I'm anxious but nervous for what's ahead. Like the photo of the tight rope walker- I remain steady. Today.....I'm at peace.
Life Lesson: Let Go.
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
