And today was our first official Board Meeting. I feel like I need to capitalize that cuz it’s pretty fancy, well, I think it is pretty fancy. But I will say, and maybe I should not cuz I never know who reads my blog, but no one was wearing a suit. Didn’t you think guys wore suits at Board Meetings? Nope, not at Matilda Jane. No time for that, we all roll our sleeves up and dig in deep to the culture, commitment we have as brand and what we can do to make our little company better by the day. There was a lot of brain power in that room. Lots of good questions to keep me thinking about where we were and who we are today and most importantly…who do we want to be. And of course, I wanna be that small company who has time to chat with a customer on the phone, building relationships, sharing stories mom to mom and all while keeping our little girls little for as long as we can. And no that is not my “refined statement”, it is just off the top of my head. All, policy and procedure aside that is what I want. I love watching your kids grown through the photos I see daily. We all love making friends and sharing stories. And I am not sure how to say this right, but I love how we are all in it together. You guys watched me grow on ebay, at art fairs, when I sold online and still today. I love that feeling and I am very loyal to you and want nothing more than to stay true to you and what you expect of me. It gets hard sometimes cuz there’s more of you and only one of me but all of us at MJC will continue to do our best.
Okay, gosh,I go off on tangents. I was going to talk about how excited we are all getting for our trip to Africa. When someone ask me what I am going to do, I kinda get caught off guard. I am not going to bring a ton of gifts or paint a ton of rooms, I really want to just go hangout with the kids and moms and dads. I want to build new relationships and if I leave with one new lifetime friends I will be over the moon. Ahhh and I just remembered Mitzi from Livie and Luca is coming. Oh, yes!! That girl is contagious. All my girls are.
Whelp I hear the car door shutting. The kids are home and I am off to get dinner out of the oven.
