About 2 minutes ago, I told Lynette that it feels like we are still in Fairfield Manor. Do you guys remember when we moved in? I felt so cool. I remember when the time came and I had to make the big decision “how the heck am I gonna pay someone a salary”. That was tough scary stuff. Things aren’t much different today. I wonder sometimes how it looks from the outside in. This whole Matilda Jane thing is beyond my wildest dreams. I could go on and on about that…but I think you’ve heard that blog a time or 2 before. I do keep thinking to myself, we have been at this for several years now and our team keeps growing but gosh, I feel like my job is just getting bigger. It is a tough place to be when you are rushing your kids through homework so you can update the website, or answer emails. It sounds bad, but it is true. The last few months have been tougher than any before. And just when I don’t think I can juggle one thing more, another ball gets thrown in my court. Not really sure where I am going with this..maybe just that I am exhausted!!!!
I told myself “just stop for a few minutes and look around and all that’s been done.” It literally sweeps me off my feet. I was looking through photos of past lines and the models have grown up before my very own eyes. Your children have. That is when I get a huge smile. It is when I realize, oh my gosh, there’s a slew of Matilda Jane girls just waiting to move mountains. There’s a slew of moms out there who have become friends. There are relationships made because of Matilda Jane and all that combined we are making a difference. With that thought, how can I ever complain? You gotta share your favorite memory with us!! I’m sure if I pick a few good ones, Kiara can hook you up with one of our super cute bags for your little girl!!
And check out our LookBook to see Madison.
….okay I just spent a good 30 minutes looking for the perfect pic…I give up.
So how about a pic of Joe…you can never go wrong with Joe!!
Tomorrow I am heading down to my favorite place in Florida. Lots of us from MJC in Fort Wayne are heading out all over the country to go to the Team Meetings as we get ready to launch Good Hart. I’m excited go but just a little stressed cuz I am so dang tired and I’m probably not gonna look all that cute nor be all that much fun. But I guess if I can just have 30 minutes out hang out on the couch Sam, Jami and Jennifer I’ll be good. And of course, meeting all the new Trunk Keepers is always a sure way to put a smile on your face.
And that is about it! It’s nearing 11:30 and I have not even thought about finishing emails, nor fabric file or packing. And I know you all have Art Fair on your mind. Kayla, Becky, Sam, Jennifer and I all had a meeting about it today. Lots of phone calls to make as we confirm everything and next week we’ll get ready to sell tickets. It’ll be much easier this time around, we are selling them online!!
