Happy Birthday to Me!



Well, today I am 29! I am learning that as you get older, you must change your expectations of your birthday. The day you were born is a great day to reflect on all of the little (and not so little) Blessings that have been sprinkled throughout the year. It's not about presents or gifts, it's about the happiness that you feel when you look around and know that you are loved.
Okay, enough of that philosophical stuff. Yesterday was very exciting for me. I got to go to Asheville and pick up my bulk organic oils that I had ordered a couple of weeks ago. Those 5 gallon buckets were beautiful! I know, I know- nerd alert! It's nice to know that I can keep making my soap without having to run to the store every couple of days because I was out of something. I had all of these different recipes and oil blends going through my mind as I was waiting for my oils, it was like torture. But, now I can make them happen. I also want to say thanks to my customers who take the time to send me comments on my blog. It almost brings me to tears when people tell me how much they enjoy my products or give me props! I know that is super-cheesy, but it's true. Thank you, thank you, thank you......

I'm glad you like the comments because I have one for you! I ordered my bars of soap through your cousin Jamie and have been using the oatmeal bar. I absolutely LOVE it! Now my problem with it: my husband has stolen it so that he can use it!!! Its like the apple cinnamon bar that my daughter stole to keep in her bathroom (not to mention the watermelon chapstick)! I'm gonna have to order more just to keep up with the soap thieves in my family!! Your product is wonderful and beautiful and I'm glad you got large tubs to be able to keep making them!

Now that is a serious problem!! Not to worry, there is plenty more where that came from and you have the inside hookup (aka Jamie!) I'm so glad that you like our soap!

Hi Katie! It's Nicole from down the road. I was searching around on the internet and found your blog through someone else's blog that was raving about your soap!!! I am so excited that it is going so well for you. Thanks again for letting me hang out today. I will stop by tomorrow to let you know about the football game.
