I finally sit down to write a blog post – which I did. About Fall. And of course, after I hit “publish” my mom calls.
Does this happen to anyone else? I think it’s hilarious. And she says “honey. Do you want to know the rumors around town?”
Of course I do! I absolutely grew up in a small town. I love hearing the rumors as much as the next person, especially when they are about me. Especially because the dirt on me is always a lot more interesting than what is actually happening in my real life. I’m more exciting sounding and mysterious in rumors. In real life I’m kind of a regular person. But in gossip, I’m very interesting! Extra Juicy!
Rumor 1: I don’t have any money.
Truth: The moment I heard that – I couldn’t help it – I laughed the big laugh. The one that I laugh that usually surprises people. And I said “oh god mom. We’re building a building! Does anyone have that kind of money just lying around?” I love honesty though, and it makes me laugh thinking that anyone might be hanging out wondering about my finances. Here we are starting a business and looking for financing for the rest of it. This is pretty standard for a new business. LOL
Rumor 2: We were denied a loan because it’s too risky.
Truth: Well. That’s just not true. Or if we have been nobody told me. Which means there would be some pretty terrible customer service stuff going on. And very unprofessional. I can tell you that I have been surprised by some of local businesses and their lack of communication. I know that we will never run The Butter Churn like that. And as much as I like to hear the juice about myself, I don’t like to spread it. Integrity and honesty is something that I value very much.
This stuff cracks me up though. Someone told someone told someone.. I love this – all the parts. And mostly because I also know that for any bit of story that goes around, underneath is a community of people who are there to help and be strong and supportive when that is needed.
And! If anyone wants to check in with me personally – I would love to hear from you!
Next blog post will be about pumpkins and food. Which are the subjects I’m most interested in – money is fine and interesting – but food! Let’s get back to that please.
