For this week’s spotlight, I want to take the blog in a personal direction and thank my wonderful family for all of their support throughout this remarkable journey.
Today is my baby brother’s 23rd birthday! As younger siblings, we fought constantly, and our parents thought we would never get along. However, when we both matured, we realized how much we had in common and have become wonderful friends.
After serving in the United States Air Force, my brother went to the Air National Guard where he is currently participating in a drill weekend, so he has to spend the weekend working. He’s been a big supporter of our business, including handing out business cards, helping us to get the store ready for opening day, and of course, linking to the blog and website for all his friends to see.
Additionally, I want to spotlight my dad for encouraging me and my aunt to pursue this crazy dream. He does everything from the menial (running errands when I don’t have time or mopping the store floor because I hate doing it) to the major (supporting me when we have setbacks and making sure I realize how lucky I am to have this opportunity).
So, a big thank you to my dad and brother this weekend. Together, you make a very sophisticated pair (I couldn’t resist the joke there!). And a very happy birthday to my “lil bro!”
