Clearly it’s been a minute or two. I know everyone says this, but it’s true – the older I get the faster the years go. I used to be ok with that (like when I wanted to just go to Jr. High or turn 16), now, not so much (the grays keep popping up, my kids know more than me and in 3 short years we’ll only have one kid left at home). I have been so blessed to have a job I truly love (most days), that is flexible enough to navigate my traveling husband’s schedule and be present in my kids’ lives (read: be the taxi driver). In order to keep a semi balance between work and family life without being admitted to a mental hospital (although a quiet room by myself sounds nice most days), I’ve had to let a lot of things go as a business owner. I always wanted to have a strong social media presence and keep my website up to date, but those were a few things that went to the wayside as I got busier.
This last year was my busiest to date – so I am excited to introduce you to Carly, my new assistant. Carly isn’t new around here. When the twins were born, she was our live-in nanny. She went on family vacations, melted butter lids to my stove top and begged me to make a resume for her. We cried when she left for college and looked forward to her visits home. I was 36 weeks pregnant when I was her maid of honor, Carson was her ring bearer and Aubrey her flower girl. Maylee came exactly one week later and I still blame it on the 45 minute bumpy drive up the mountain to Carly’s wedding venue. Carly loves caring for people, so naturally she worked at the Hospital as a Lab Tech until this last January when sweet baby Brantley was born. I tried to convince Carly to go back to work just so the tables could turn and I could be her nanny, she refused, but she accepted the next best thing, being my assistant. So, if you’re a current or potential client, you’ll see her and hear from her from time to time. If you’re on our website, facebook or instagram, she’s the one posting and responding most of the time. She’s caught on super quick and she’s really good at her job and I am lucky to have her as my assistant and my Saughter (sister, because I’m not really old enough to be her mom/daughter, because I mom her all of the time).
