Sounds like a song...no that was Oh what a night...I must be showing my age. Well, this was quite a day. Not only is today my Very First Blogiversary...it is the day that I told my customers that I am retiring. The shop will close on August 22.
First I want to thank all of you who read my blog and comment how much I enjoy hearing from you. You all have become a very special part of my life. I have made some wonderful friends here in blogland and am very thankful each day. So as many before me have done...I am going to have a prize package for a lucky winner of my Comment drawing...leave a comment between now and Friday evening and I will have my trusty assistant Andy draw a name out of the hat. I look forward to another fun year of blogging and now that I won't be working any more and will have time to sew, sew, sew....I'll have lots more to blog about.
We knew that we were making the right decision about closing the shop and spending retirement together...even though Andy will still be doing his consulting work, and traveling...it was confirmed this evening when I got an e-mail from a gal whose husband had recently retired and went to play golf, had a massive heart attack on the golf course and died right there. She wrote to me and said that this was the best decision I could make...spend time with them while you have them...you just never know what will happen. That just confirmed it. I'm looking forward to spending time with Andy and I'm looking forward to spending LOTS of time in my sewing room...so ladies, you'll be hearing lots more from me.
Again, thank you for a wonderful year. You've taught me more than you'll ever know...here's to another year.
