A Front Page Kind of Day
Humblebea's beautiful treasury made the Front Page of Etsy today. Front and center of it is my daughter, Marci, wearing one of my favorite necklaces, Charisma, which I blogged about here. After getting a gazillion (okay, around 200) views in an hour, I sold the mugs pictured yesterday! My husband got a great consulting gig and my daughter scored a goal and won her soccer game, so its been a pretty eventful 24 hours in the Wolfe household. I am taking deep breaths as if my very being must expand to take it all in. I hope that doesn't sound greeting card corny. Its just that the stress of having a husband who lost his job, starting up a shop on Etsy where I barely know my arse from a hole in the ground most of the time, and having one teenager at home and 2 in college can make me feel like I am making that proverbial lemonade 24/7. So to have a carefree day when life is handing me mimosas rather than lemons is rather surprising.
And its Passover, a time of celebration; acknowleging triumphs. Okay, so I'm not exactly as triunphant as the Jews leaving slavery in Egypt, but whatever. I'm celebrating anyway! Thanks for the mimosas! Keep 'em coming, please!
