Such a little thing, and such a big victory.
Today, I officially got the keys to Myrtle! In some ways it feels like a long time coming but it’s also been incredibly fast. I set my mind to becoming a shop owner less than 12 months ago, and now I am! It’s also been a little over a month since I left my desk job, and one month exactly since I turned 29—not a bad start to my year at all!
There is a lot of work ahead. I started cleaning this morning and have a lot to go. The contractor comes tomorrow and the electrician comes on Friday. I have one order arrived and many many more to come.
But it’s also good to take a breather and celebrate the milestones and I’m doing that a little too: a great lunch with Mr. Myrtle at my favorite donut place, and a new bottle of Lillet Blanc. My friend Maegan turned me onto this one—isn’t the label just gorgeous?
More news on the opening soon, but it’s looking like two weeks now (eek!)
