The anticipation for the office reveal and excitement that came along with leading up to this special occasion for Red Lips and Cigar Sticks was very exciting for me.
I had a lot of support from my friends and family, which was very encouraging and helpful.
I am very creative, naturally, so ideas and thoughts are always racing through my head and I just have to get them out there and jot them down, before it escapes me, which is why I walk so fast, I guess…LOL.
I’m always moving and shaking and on to the next thing, I cannot sit still or just be idle. I’m always moving with purpose and forceful in my actions, I mean business, always…LOL!!!!!
The official launch party occurred on Sunday, 08/05/2018, and it was magnificent. There was a lot of planning and preparation work involved, to see my thoughts and ideas come to light.
I am definitely a perfectionist, very meticulous, observant, and tentative to attention to detail. I like to get things done, why wait to finish something tomorrow, when you are capable and able to, today, is my philosophy.
Therefore, I had a lot of restless nights and earlier mornings with this remodel, as many of you saw from my storyline on Instagram and Facebook. We remodeled the office and our patio.
In addition, I still work a full-time job, I was blogging, taken T-shirt orders directly, and doing my normal daily duties as mom and wife, and everything else and above, and in-between.
However, working out the details and particulars was already done in the beginning stages of planning, so all I had to do was execute my plans and stay on task, which comes easy to me, fortunately!!! And, as we got further along with completing the office, I was gleaming with excitement and joy, because it was coming out exactly, if not better, than I envisioned it. And, I could not wait for everyone to see it!!!!!!
Also, after putting all the time into this project and elbow grease, it was so worth it, because nothing makes you feel prouder than when you’ve done something and you can stand back and enjoy its glory, knowing that you were a part of it.
The reveal, video and photo shoot, and time with my friends and family was phenomenal. It was very special for me, it solidified that I was stepping into uncharted territories as a new business owner, but it was more important that it showcased that with grace and persistence, you can accomplish anything, knowingly, or unknowingly.
The day of the event, Sunday, I was so pumped up and excited to allow my friends and family to be a part of this special occasion, as well as my followers. I decided to have a ribbon cutting to make it official, as the Grand Opening for Red Lips and Cigar Sticks.
And, I was overjoyed with the response and willingness of others wanting to assist and be a part of this celebration.
I am beyond grateful and thankful for them. I am very appreciative of their acts of kindness and thoughtfulness, especially my husband, he’s been a major contributor, behind the scenes and low-key.
