Today is coming to an end and I still am in shock and a little bit of denial that this is all coming to end here at the Playground.
I love this place and all of you so very much!
My life has been forever changed and blessed by this store and you!
It is where I create, where I am inspired and where I have met and become friends with so many incredible, talented women. I have the most incredible customers and you have become my dearest friends. You have been amazing and I have learned so much from all of you.
I love the comfortable space in the classroom where we have created, laughed and cried. We have all gone through so much and learned from one another.
My Tuesday night crowds are my very dearest and closest friends...I adore everyone of you so very much and my Saturday classes are full of women who inspire and encourage me.
Saturday we celebrate the union of Kelly and Jay. I am struck by how close and how much I love this girl who walked in to my store almost 4 years ago. She was quiet, shy and it took me forever to get her to talk with me.
Now on Saturday, Angie, Cara and I will help her celebrate her marriage to Jay and the union of their families. We have all been there though every step of this incredible journey and I am grateful for every bit which would not have been possible without this store.
I have been truly blessed to have the very best of friends in all of you. You would not believe how many of your phone numbers are in my phone. Everyone of you has become so important to me and so important to the Playground.
I hope that it remains comfortable, inspiring and rewarding for all of you. It is not goodbye....I will always be right here on this very blog and you with always be right here in my heart.
