Happy Valentine's Day!~!

Clinchfield Pottery

I have a distant memory of a not-so-fun Valentine's Day, back in 2008!  It actually seems like it was more like 20 years ago!  At that time, I was devastated, now I thank God it happened!

I won't go into a lot of detail, because it's not that big of a deal anymore.  Just picture the scenario:  I've worked at the same company for years, a woman named Regan (who really didn't know me), from a corporate office, came in on Valentine's Day, 2008, eating a cupcake, and come's up to me and say's "Jenny I need to talk to you".  She finished her cupcake and then proceeded to tell me that they had to lay me off from my job.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Now when I look back to that day, I honestly laugh!  The cupcake part is the funniest!

It took me awhile, but I moved forward, and started my first Etsy shop soon after all of that!  I now have 3 Etsy shops, and I love love love (did I mention I love) having my own business!

Thanks Regan!! Happy Valentine's Day!!
