Hey there, darlin’! How are the summer days treating you? Mine have been well. Very well. However, I feel them slipping away.
This is officially my last week of summer break. My
baby little lady isn’t even here to share it with me. Sad face, indeed. Instead, I’m filling this week with lots of solo coffee drinking, Mad Men, errands, chores grown up friends and spouse time. Lilie Jo is away at her father’s for two weeks and I start a new job Monday.
This is new news here. I held off sharing any details about it for fear of another let down. I know that’s not a positive thing to say, which I usually try to stear clear of, but its how I truly felt. I start Monday as a salon manager at JC Penney Salon. I am ecstatic and also nervous. I’m going back to work full time and intend to try to do that with a full time school schedule, this Fall, as well.
I know it will be hard and there will be little room for play, but with my supportive husband and a big new planner, I’m ready to give it my all.
My goal is to take the JC Penney Salon, here in Bowling Green, and turn it around. They’ve been without a manager for about a year and were already in bad shape even then. Bad enough that I only lasted four months as a stylist there when we first relocated. I’ve never held a manager or leader position quite like this, but I do feel like I’m a better candidate now than I was a year ago.
I always talk about how fast children grow and change, yet I’m not sure that speed is limited to just children. We just don’t see it with our eyes, as much, in adults. As much as I feel I have grown and changed over the past seven years, its sometimes surprising to see its still happening. The growth and change never stopped.
Anyway, here I am babbling.
I really wrote to you to share a new print. My lovely cousin, Lacey, suggested I create something to go with Colossians 3:12-17. It seemed impossible to create anything as clever as this one. But I put my pencil to the paper and started brainstorming.
I don’t think its quite as clever or cute, but this is my version. Print, Pin and do what you like with it. It can be printed as large as 11”x8”.
