What a spring it has been. In so many ways. I started off this year with so much hope and excitement – this was going to be MY YEAR!! Needless to say, things haven’t exactly panned out the way I saw them in my head . . . HOWEVER – I am still here, I am still breathing, I have been working my tail off trying to keep up with everything (I could REALLY use a clone of myself this time of year!), and I am trying to remain positive (some days are better than others). The good news is that Creekside Cottage is coming together! This new “she shed” is a super cute addition to the farm and nursery and I am looking forward to its completion so that I can start hunting for local vendors to help me fill it with all sorts of handmade goods, vintage, farm-y décor, garden art, succulents and house plants! If the reality comes close to what’s in my head it should be pretty terrific. AND – we did a “soft opening” of the nursery this past weekend to kind of dip our toes in the water and it was a lot of fun. I am so thankful to all of those that came out!! We definitely have a couple of things to work on – signage and parking being the two biggest things at the moment . . . but we will get there. We are going to start opening on the weekends after Memorial Day, so we will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am until 4 pm and more than likely Fridays as well starting in June. I am so excited to finally see this dream of mine coming to fruition – even if I didn’t pick the greatest year for it, haha.
