My One Year Anniversary

Today is the one-year anniversary of the opening of my shop. As I sit here reflecting on the past year I am filled with a sense of gratitude. I am so grateful that I found this little building, and that I had so much support from friends and family who all helped me get it painted and ready to open. I am grateful to the neighborhood and the people in it for their warm welcome and their undying support throughout the past year. I am grateful for every single one of my customers. I am grateful to my husband without whom this dream of mine would still be just that – a dream. I am grateful for friends and family who lend an ear when I’ve had a bad day, who are there when I am in need and who are forever my cheerleaders and help keep me going.

It was a good year. I learned so much. I met so many wonderful people. And I am really looking forward to this next year. I have so many plans and I hope that it will be even better than the past one.

As I sit here drinking my coffee and getting ready to open today, I pray for my business to keep building momentum. I pray more and more people will hear about my shop and come in. I pray that the financial burden of inflation will ease for all of us so that fun little shops like mine can survive. And I pray that you all have a wonderful holiday season filled with friends and family, great memories and much joy.

  1. Rachel, Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary! I want you to know that whenever I am in Spokane, I will stop by, say hello, maybe have a coffee in my hand that has your name on it and browse around. You have put out fantastic videos, your work is outstanding, and you seem more at ease in front of the camera then you did when I first started watching you. I wish you all the best in the upcoming years, as I feel the best is yet to come for you. I pray also that the recession will ease up a bit so I may come blow my “allowance” or “egg money” (if you know what that is) in your shop. Here is to many more anniversaries on down the road.
