On this first day of our sixth year in Stillwater, I am thankful.
I know, thanksgiving is next week but why wait when I am feeling this way. Yesterday we celebrated our 5th Anniversary in Stillwater Minnesota, exactly 9 years to the day since opening in San Jose California.
I am thankful for the sun that is shining even though it is only 45 degrees out. I LOVE that it shines when it is cold. This Silicon Vally girl is still amazed with weather.
I am thankful for the loyal customers who manage to show up to our occasional events and buy stuff. It was a lot of fun, a huge success, but a lot of work too.
I am thankful for Megan, and Peggy my "staff", thanks for working so hard. And to Laurie my sister who did not get to come to the actualy Soiree, but helped last month nonetheless. Oh, and not to forget dad who actually arranged the greenery in the pots and helped with the wreath in the shop! You must be where I get it from, and we thought it was from mom!
Last but not least, or should I say MOST important. I am thankful for my husband Bob. Who tirelessly takes out the trash, hangs the light fixtures 16 feet up, changes the lightbulbs, moves the fixtures, builds the racks, paints the walls, changes the light bulbs and even managed to serve the wine! There would be no Rose Mille without you! I love you very much.
