First Day is a Wrap

I think the first day of almost anything is the hardest. I woke up very early Friday morning with all kinds of questions and fears- what if no one shows up, what if they just don’t like it, what if the computer goes crazy ( or it’s operator) , what if I run out of receipt tape- I didn’t say any of these were even remotely logical. Those early morning hours were filled with both excitement and dread.

I’m happy to say I did have customers, the computer and I got along pretty well and I was blessed to see dear friends and the sweetest new ones. 

A special thank you to my OKC girls for all your sweet words of encouragement and even a few treats. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of ya’ll and am reminded of our friendship. You may not be in Waco but believe me, you are here and so much a part of this store. 

Thanks to the ladies who drove in from Ft Worth, Austin and Athens to welcome me in our new home. It was such a kind gesture. The Waco locals were so welcoming and reassuring that my decision was the right one. I met the sweetest young lady at First Friday and I hope to see you again- we need to paint together Mariam. 

Here’s some pics of the store, still work to do but we are off to a good start.

We are off to a great start. Hope you have a great week and I look forward to meeting you and sharing our " Happy Place"


  1. I love the look of the building! Great things and magic will follow!

  2. Just another reason I NEED to visit Waco!

  3. Congratulations, Cindy! I KNOW Waco is thrilled to have you there - our loss is their gain for sure! I never doubted your first day(s) would go well, but so happy to hear no glitches - the place looks AWESOME!
    Wishing you nothing but the best in your new home! We sure do miss you though in OKC.
