I cried lots of tears.... as I walked out of the extension office on March 15th, 2018.
Those tears were both sad and happy ones. I was leaving behind a huge part of my life. For twelve years I taught small farms, livestock and 4-H programs to the Gem County community. I had amazing co-workers and families that meant so much to me and it was hard to walk away. In fact, I'd tried to for a few years and couldn't do it, until then. My heart and my passion were in my boutique and I wanted to pursue it. I was scared but I was ready.
One year ago I became a full-time boutique boss. One year ago, I steered a path to change our family and change our life. One year ago, I jumped off the cliff and for the last 365 days I have spread my wings and I have learned to fly.
In the last year, I have focused on building our businesses. I have focused on being a better Mom, wife, boss and in my perspective I have become one. My days are my own, I get to take my babies to work, I get to be surrounded by an amazing team that keeps me laughing. I get to meet customers whose stories have changed my life. I get to work along side my incredible husband daily and I get to make my dreams my reality. Everyday I wake up excited, motivated and happy.
I have learned that what you focus on becomes your reality. I was scared for so long to take the leap, but I have now realized that your destiny is in your hands. You can do big things, you can chase your dreams and you can most definitely fly.
Thanks for helping me soar friends. Cheers to lots more incredible years!
