As we walked out of the restaurant, bellies full and skin cooled, we were more optimistic. It took less than two minutes before we were both dripping wet with sweat. We made it to one place, asked around, learned the policies, the lady even said she loved my work! Awesome! One place down, where next? Well, maybe we should get coffee... So we trekked a couple blocks out of the way, through heat so heavy you drag your feet, to gather the energy we suddenly realized we needed. Check, coffee break a success, now where?
We then, so intelligently, found ourselves wondering downtown for no where in particular. We always see boutiques down here right? Where did they go? Nope, no boutiques, little gift stores, anything, just another 10 degrees hotter. We finally gave up and headed ALL THE WAY back. I have no idea how far it was. If I was cool, then I would be ashamed of the struggle, but 5 steps equals 1 mile in 102 degree heat. We barely tripped our way home.
So, unfortunately due to our bad planning, I do not have any awesome news about a boutique buying out our entire stock of merchandise. I do have good news though. One of the most important things I can do right now is get our blog and shop seen by as many people as possible. As an incentive to help us out, we are going to do a giveaway once a month. If you follow us, you get your name in the jar. If you pin/tweet/or facebook us and comment the link on our blog, you get your name in. If you recommend someone else to do one of those things, and they mention your name in a comment, than you (and your friend of course) get names in the jar. I want to thank everyone already for all the support and help. Above is the first prize for July, you can get info from the link!
