Panic, Prayer & Patience

This post is proving a little bit harder than usual to write. Not that I think the words won’t flow once I start typing (I can already feel them, chomping at the bit), but there’s more than a little trepidation putting this all out there. But after being on Instagram for the past year, and writing one deep(ish) post after another, I’ve realized one very important thing: the harder it is for me to share (basically, the more I really, really don’t want to), the more that I need to.

Don’t feel too bad about nodding along (emphatically, even) because there were probably dozens of times when we thought the exact same thing. In fact, as I’m drafting this – one week before our “start date” – I’m STILL not sure it’s going to happen because every time we get close something doesn’t go quite as planned. Like at this very moment our stickers still aren’t here and our recycled mailers are out of stock and we had … Continue reading
