Okay here we are, about six weeks off from our projected launch date. I'm beyond excited and equally as nervous. It's hard to believe that a year ago my husband and I made the decision to start this company and now our launch date is growing ever closer. By the time anyone reads this we will most likely have a solid launch date but for now I'm guessing it will be the beginning of April. The month of April is pretty special to me, last year at this time my family and I were going through something amazing and traumatic (a story for another time) but it lead us to follow our dreams so for that this month will always be special to me.
The last few months have been filled with photo-shoots, late night emails and juggling being a snack bitch for two little's while trying to create a website with absolutely zero idea what the hell I'm doing. Plus side.... I found out my son can actually provide all that is required to sustain life for he and his little sister while I "parent" from behind my computer screen. Ahhh but it will all be worth it one day, hopefully that day will come soon.
I've learned so much about myself through this process. I took an idea I had last year about a waterproof glove that wasn't a thick winter glove and from that I have sourced a manufacture, created a brand and embarking on learning the finer points of marketing. For someone who use to define herself solely as "a mom" I am now able to confidently add "boss babe" to my list of defining traits. I'm so beyond proud of myself. I'm showing my children that if you want something in life, to go out and make your dreams happen. So here I am making my dreams come true, with your help and support my children will one day look back on these days when mom survived on so little sleep and constantly wrote lists about what she needed to do as the days that defined me in their eyes as more than just their mom, I am going to be an example of what hard work and a little determination looks like.
