The greatest moments in life are not concerned with selfish achievements but rather with the things we do for the people we love and esteem. — Walt Disney
March 2018, when everything began to change. I had been searching for something new to offer my travel clients, something to tap into my creative side and something my family could do together. Another family that we were very close with, traveled together, experienced many things together, was also a part of this new business venture.
What first started out as a focus on gifts for travel clients quickly evolved into personalized gifts for every type of situation. Teachers, Football Moms, Awareness for different groups, holidays and more. It was so much bigger than what I could have imagined and a true blessing from God! Most importantly – I was doing it with my family right beside me!
We made it through to August and with all business ventures involving friends, it came to a painful and screeching halt. The business was fine and prospering – the friendship however was not. It was heartbreaking! How could so many years, so many memories all of a sudden just be over?! But it was. Hurtful things were said, accusations were made, and with that a door was closed. Slammed shut.
There is a reason that they say “When God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window.” After the storm had settled and the tears had slowed, because let’s face it, a friendship of 7 years that suddenly ends, the tears and pain from that hurt won’t stop overnight, a new business formed. One that was more focused on my family and had truly been there all along, I just didn’t see it and should have from the beginning. If you keep God the center of everything you do, everything else will fall into place and be blessed. Maybe it took a little bit of pain for me to realize it which was not ideal, but everything is in God’s plan and with that Two Mini’s and a Mouse – Personalized Design Boutique was born.
These girls right here. My reason for doing everything! My Disney Mini’s. My gifts from God. Meet Madison and Maesyn. I am one proud girl mom – with all the bows, glitter and dresses included! They are the inspiration behind Two Mini’s and really the inspiration surrounding everything that I do – ALL that I do.
You will get to see a lot of our adventures throughout this blog because we have many! When you have kids, regardless if they are yours biologically, through adoption/fostering, you’re a fab bonus mom, or combination of all, there are many adventures. Some that are exciting and some that make you want to bang your head against a wall but all that make you who you are and your story special.
Until next time – have a magical day!
