It’s my Birthday. I usually don’t like to talk about my birthday (because I have issues. Ha. Issues. The joke is actually that I’ve bypassed having issues and went straight to having a subscription. LOL)
I’m posting today though, not because of today, but because of last year. Last year we were in Illinois for today – and the store looked like this:
What a year it’s been! Look at some of the things we’ve done since that last year!
Last year I turned 40 and for some people those numbers are full of blech – At the risk of sounding over the top though – Turning 40 for me was full of gratitude. In the last few years several of my friends have died before getting a chance to loathe 40. Because of that I wanted to celebrate and be grateful to have an opportunity to do something they weren’t able to do. And to not be scared to follow a dream like opening the store. We really never know how much time we have. Now that I’m 41 – the feeling of gratitude continues. Last year we were hoping to have the store open and ready. This year I get to celebrate knowing that we have done so much this past year.
The Butter Churn’s Official Birthday will be in July and we’ll have even more photos and whatnot – in the meantime though it seemed remiss not to celebrate at every opportunity!
