Congrats, Mom!

This summer marks a great milestone in my mom's life. 10 years ago this summer she finally opened her own shop.  She talked about doing this for a long time and finally she found the spot, some money, and some time to make it happen!!! I'm so proud of her. She turned an old barber shop into a cute little flower & gift shop. For those of you that know my mom you know she is gifted beyond great in the creativity department.  She is full of art, creativity, ideas, and talent.  I obviously missed this gene :)  A handful of her abilities inlcude painting, drawing, flower arranging, scetching, and just simple creativity with random things.  She can take about anything and make it look pretty :)  She is awesome at what she does in her shop. She knows flowers and flowers seem to work for her! She has ran The Farmers Wife in Jesup for 10 years and I know many people have been blessed for it, including her family. We celebrated last week with a little party and served up some yummy pork burgers for the town. It was so fun to see my mom there celebrating. I wish I would have taken a picture of the store BEFORE she gave away all the beautoful flower arrangments! The front of the store was covered with them. Congrats, Mom!!! What an accomplishment! Thanks for all you do to bring smiles to so many people in your community and surrounding area!!!
