For years I have wanted so badly to mail out Christmas cards, but for whatever reason just not prioritized it. This year however, I have already mailed out several and I am so excited about it!!! I had no idea how much it would put me even more in the spirit. I have also been mailing out so many customized pet ornaments and making each one boosts my already through-the-roof Christmas cheer!
I’m sitting here sipping hot chocolate, looking at our beautiful colorful kitchen just outside the bedroom door, and have a warm little Poptart next to me in the bed, and I can’t help but think how grateful I am for the events that led to this. Our kitchen is colorful, our old home has new flooring systems, new plumbing, new electrical wiring, and every little bump in the road the last few years was all for this. I am able to do what I love - working with dogs - and even have a new business starting in 2024 with a few girlfriends. Here is a hint:
I have the most amazing clients. I’m meeting with a new one in the morning, and I tell ya I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of getting new work of this type. Folks that love their animals so much they don’t want to throw them into a stressful boarding situation while they travel…. Don’t get me wrong, some dogs LOVE daycare and ‘camp’ (what I think some of them think of boarding), but for older or less social dogs, that is stressful.
Any way, Christmas cards and lots of gratitude over here this quiet Christmasy night, and tomorrow starts another action packed day prepping for the holiday market this weekend by having a mock setup - I know it sounds like overkill, but it is how I plan for these… setup can be a bitch if you are unprepared… anywho, toodleoooooo! Night night!
