we made it!

Today is my one month anniversary of owning the store! Can that be considered an anniversary? I think so, since owning a store is like a relationship... I am so completely in love with the store and with what I do. 
So I thought I would say "Happy Anniversary." 

We've made it for a whole month and we're going strong. I have amazing support behind me and without them this wouldn't be possible. I've had many visitors and many well wishes since my first day. Even my first grade teacher wrote me saying "I'm not sure who is prouder of you me or your mom." Speaking of my mom, she's been great! I couldn't do this without her...
And thank you again to Tracie Stier-Johnson- what an amazing lady!
(I feel like this is an award acceptance speech- I might or might not be teary!) 

I came across this old photograph while doing some cleaning. It was taken before the store was built. It is amazing how time has changed and how the store has. I can't wait to see what's in store for the future. . . 




So for all of you bwp supporters out there... thank you! 
I hope for many many more wonderful months to come. . .

Congratulations Kate on your first month in business. The store is great, I love all the new cards, wrapping paper and journals that are coming in every day. I hope you have many happy years at BWP.

Hey Kate,
Congratulations - the store looks great and has copious amounts of charm and a touch of sassiness, just like its brand new owner!
