The countdown to Nova Scotia has begun. Are we really doing this? How crazy busy can one person be?
I have found a wonderful new sales rep in Toronto. I'm quite excited about expanding my line to more stores in Canada. I couldn't figure out why my new canadian stores wanted their winter hats in July and August, but then I remembered, oh yeah, it's Canada. I'm so used to our October heat waves here in The Hudson Valley, NY. So, here I am trying to sort through the attic, pack boxes, and keep the house clean for people coming to see our house, ( we are renting it out). At the same time I'm filling my wholesale orders and of course the etsy orders. Amazingly, I have not really lost it yet. I think I have come to the realization that all I can do is put one foot in front of the other and that freaking out only makes it harder.
Dusty and his best friend Sophie (who is three years old) had the best conversation the other day. They were sitting across from each other at the kitchen table when Dusty matter of factly said to Sophie, "So, Sophie, do you have a Bagina or not" (spelled like it was pronounced) And Sophie replied, "Dusty, my mom made me I wasn't made in China." I love listening to those two discuss life. It's heartbreaking that I am separating them by moving. They see each other every day. Tony and I are hoping that they will eventually get married and hopefully she will by that time stop decking him. So in honour of Sophie I am posting this photo of her modeling a hat that sold. I'll make another one one of these days. Until next time. Happy Hatting. Anna
