The greatest part of having the booth this week was the fact that I got to meet some great new friends and run into some great old ones. (Not old as in age, but old as in long time friends. :) )
Thursday morning I met the vendor that was setting up next to me - Amber of Baileigh Grace Boutique. And as she was setting up, a friend of hers came in and brought her a coffee and as they were chatting, this friend turned and looked at me and said, "I know you! You're my neighbor and I read your blog!" (a mutual friend of ours had given her my blog address) Times like this remind me just how small the world (and especially our cozy little town) really is. And so we began talking. I have been a bad neighbor (with a million reasons why), but I had actually only spoken to this person once in the two years that we have lived in our house. This is even crazier because our sons are the same age and we could have been having playdates all along. But, point is, now we've connected and I am sure that in a short amount of time she is going to get sick of me. :)
Amber and I spent all of Thursday getting to know one another and chatting it up. The girl is hysterical! And the clothes that she makes...ugh! It makes me wish that I was five years old again so that I could wear her beautiful creations everyday. Seriously. Don't worry, I'll link you to her in a minute. If you live in Jefferson (or the area) you can also find her things in Love's next to Subway on the Square. I am having dresses made for the girls this spring. I am also dying to get Q a John John, but when I mentioned this to Chris he made blank face and said, "Didn't you come home with a ton of plaid shorts the other night?" And I said, "Yes." (Because its true. I really did buy Q a ton of plaid shorts. I love plaid shorts. Chris won't wear them, so I figure I should put them on someone who won't object. Mainly because he can't talk, but that's ok, I'll take it.) And then Chris said, "Haven't you done enough to the poor boy?"
Perhaps. But he would look so stinkin cute in the John Johns. Seersucker. With his initials embroidered on the front. So cute I could cry.
Here's the link. She'll have way more stuff put back up soon...just in time for spring. You can thank me later. And seriously, if you don't live here, you can order. Along with sewing, she knows how to ship things.
