One of our dear friends got married over Memorial Day weekend and although the store had just opened two weeks prior, we did not want to miss the wedding. In a dilemma of what to do, we called on the ladies most important to us, our Mothers. We asked them to travel and work at the store Friday and Saturday so we could drive down to Ponte Vedra for the festivities.
We had a day of training with our moms and then we let them take the reins. I think that we were a lot more nervous than they were. We checked in multiple times each day and nervously winced each time they called us. But, they did fabulous and I think they had fun as well. It was the first time they had met each other, but I think they may have been sisters in another life.

We are working with our web guys on the site so we hope to have things up and running very soon. Right now it is just a spash page, but we will have a full site as well as online shopping later this summer. The web company is called Variant and they are great to work with. If you are ever looking for an interactive company they are great.

It did not occur to us that we would be opening the Thursday before Mother's Day. It was a very good thing because we were super busy from the second we opended. There was hardly a minute to catch our breath and since we were still getting the hang of everything it was a little crazy here - in a good way. Gotta run!

We have been putting the final touches in the store. Re-arranging items to get the best look, making sure things are tagged and that all items are in inventory. Well as hard as we tried to get everything done, there are still a couple of things that won't get done. There will always be things that need to be done, so we are going to go ahead and open on Thursday. Can't wait!

We now have our CO and can officially move-in our space. We really don't know where to start because we have so many items spread between our houses and the back part of the shop. Also, we need some major help moving most of the furniture because it is way to heavy for the two of us. Thankfully we have amazing friends who helped us move in over the past several days. We could not have done it without them and they went above and beyond anything we would have expected. From brining us lunch to moving furniture to climbing in the cardboard dumpster so that we could throw more boxes away, our friends and husbands were an integral part to getting our doors open on time. Thank you!!!
