Oh The Places We Have Been

(Washington Fall, 2009)
With the one year anniversary of our shop upon us, I have taken to reflecting about our past year.
We have gone through so many things and seen so much. 
I first opened our shop as a way to better the depression I was going through. 
It gave me purpose. 
It gave me something important to do every Friday (estate sale shopping with my Father-in-Law, Daniel, and Bono Baby). 
It gave me the opportunity to do my very favorite thing, make care packages and send them out into the world.
It made and makes me happy.
I think all this change,  progression, and happiness is cause for a celebratory giveaway. 

(Washington Fall, 2009)
We miss Washington so very much but we are excited about this new adventure we are on.
So, share with us in the celebrating and comment with your favorite quote or something sweet and motivational.
The winner will be picked out of a hat (by Bono Baby of course) next Monday, November 1st.
Oh, and the winner will get a care package filled with Fall Goodness.

love and hugs,
Fritzi Marie

p.s. The shop will be filled with new treasure in November. 
So exciting!

Not to enter necessarily, just to say I love your inspirational post, and the story of your shop, its beginnings and growings. And the photos. How radiant and happy you look!

I heard this today and have been replaying it in my mind over and over again,

"We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us." Joseph Campbell

Such a wonderful way to think about change.

Happy anniversary of a beautiful beginning...

My dearest Kitty,

your comment on my post about summer touched my heart and made me weep that there is such kindness in the world. You are a beautiful girl with a beautiful heart!

and so i will share my favorite quote that fits what you were feeling when you opened your fabulous shop (it's how we met, after all! you helped me in a blog swap):

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;"

-Tolkien

it's my all time favourite.

i love you sweet girl! xo

i like this quote, and i think it's appropriate for what you are celebrating:

"One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star."
-Friendrich Nietzsche

i'm happy for your success and your adventures. as always, best of luck w/everything going on!!

congratulations on your shop's one year, Kat! A quote that always gets me through tough times is a Danish proverb that Audrey Hepburn favored: "Don't fret; it will turn out differently, anyway." It reminds me of what I already know: that things usually don't turn out how you expect, but everything always ends up okay.

Congratulations on your one year anniversary! I've loved and cherished everything I've gotten from it, and love how much care and love you put into every package. You are an inspiration to me, and I love you. Here's a quote I've always loved, and today it's the first one that popped into my mind, because it reminds me of you:

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
~Audrey Hepburn
