I got Kevin to pick me up an hour early from work, and we decided to take London down to the Royal winter fair. I was in heaven hanging out with my cute little family (heart explosion). London got to see horses, cows, pigs, chickens, and bunnies. She kept pointing at all the animals with a huge grin on her face. Watching her experience things for the first time is such an incredible moment for me. Feeling her grab me tighter when she is scared, or letting go of me when she is feeling confident. She got to feed some goats, and alpacas. Watching Kevin and her hold hands, or kiss melts my heart every single time. We walked around, found a cute antique booth. We got to try a hot apple dumpling for our first time, and it was amazing! Warm, sweet, and gooey. When we finally found the food court we had pirogies, a burger, and potato pancakes. Kevin was sitting across from us and he kept giggling, turns out London's face was covered in sour cream!! On the way out she picked out a little hedgehog stuffed animal. She loves stuffed animals! By the time we got home London had fallen asleep in the car, she must have been tired from all the walking. Her little legs can only walk so fast, but she manages to keep up! These are the type of days I live for, memories that will last a life time. xx
YAY! MTH is ready and guess what? My husband didn't leave me.... and my marriage is intact! It has been a long process, and HUGE learning curve. We have literally ordered take out for the last month because I haven't had a minute to cook. Kevin has been so incredible! He has put London to sleep every single night while I work. (FYI creating barcodes one at a time for each item is a tedious process) I had sales my first day and am getting compliments even though I am not 100% happy with the results yet. I feel like it is a work in progress and like we are slowly getting there. I am still waiting for shipments to arrive. I can't wait to show you guys what I have chosen for you. In the mean time you can come by and check out what we have in stock. Please stop by and say hi :)
It was my husband's birthday today and I forgot! I feel like the most terrible person on the planet. This man has given me everything. Everything I have ever wanted. I'm talking surprises me with love letters, showers me with gifts, finds solutions to all my problems, and most importantly has given me my healthy daughter (IVF for 2 years) I don't want to turn this into a cheesy love poem, BUT I HAVE NO CHOICE! I'm talking I would die for this man (yes I am that type of a person).
This is what I think happened (and no I am not making excuses for myself) I am in the middle of opening Macpherson Toy House, which is my first time doing anything like this! I am new to this end of the retail world (my husband would tell you I am a professional shopaholic and has banned me from many stores in the ’hood). Its been a huge learning curve, hectic, a lot of decision making, and on top of it I have a little girl who turned one yesterday. Thats the other thing, their birthdays are one day apart. London's is the 18th, and Kevin's is the 19th. I never thought I would forget the most important person in my life's bday. I was so worried about not being around for my daughters birthday that I wasn't even thinking about my poor husband. And now the unthinkable has happened! I pride myself in being a giver. I love making my loved ones feel special. I hate saying no to them! I am going to take this as my first big lesson from running a business, don't forget about what's most important!
