This & That (including a new business!)

Well, it’s been awhile since I spent any time in the blog world.  I miss reading and catching up with all of my awesome blog friends!!!

The past few weeks have been full with all sorts of exciting events.

Chris and I went to the Dining Out (military ball/adult prom).  Always fun to get all dressed up!!!

We also hosted the Concealed Reveal – art auction that the YWCA does for the battered women’s shelter – such an incredible event!!!

Sadly, one of our tenants had to move out very quickly and unexpectedly.  Fortunately we were able to rent the apartment in 1 week!!!  It’s super cute – my favorite of the 3 apartments.

The boys are almost done with another school year  (only 8 more days!!!).   Lots of concerts, programs and, of course, tests!!!  (and then both boys will be high schoolers!!!!)

And……we are in the process of starting a new business!!!  Meetings, planning, talking, research  and fears are all taking shape for my next big venture.

This building doesn’t look like a lot right now –

But I have huge plans that include new flooring (no more commercial carpeting), removal of the weird wall things and opening the ceiling to revel this awesome raised tin ceiling –

This business will be a retail venture – everything you need for a wedding (or any big event) all in one location – all offered through consignment.

After almost 2 years of running an event venue I know there is a need for a local place to buy and sell the decorations and other items needed for a big event that only get used once!!!

So, we are opening…Your Special Day.  This will be a store that you can walk into and feel like you are in an upscale shopping place with a personal shopping experience.

We also want to include any and all vendors that people need for weddings (or other big events) and give them a space to display some of their product/work.

The idea is all-in-one shopping/planning for your wedding or any big event/party.

So, my blogging might be Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 8.29.17 PMfor awhile but I hope to get back to it more consistently at some point!!!

(I have been doing my daily 45s still even though I haven’t posted any  in weeks!!!

How are things with you?

Happy Wednesday!!!

Kim
