    So let me tell you a story.  It’s about two girls, a shop, and a blog.  And no, it’s not some weird joke.  It’s actually oddly sappy for my taste.

    What seems like forever ago, I had finished grad school, was working part time, substituting, and trying to find a teaching job.  I was trying to figure out who exactly I was supposed to be in life after college.  In an effort to do all this figuring out, I applied and was hired at a women, children, and home decor shop in town.  It was owned by this girl who intimidated the hell out of me, but somehow I could stand there and spill my guts for what seemed like forever or walk around the shop wearing clothes like I already owned them, and not feel out of place at all.  Over the next 5 years, my “boss” and I became something of a duo, but I’ve still never gone to her house for grilled pizzas, so there’s that.

    Working at the shop poured over into my style.  I became more me.  I wore what I wanted to wear.  It even poured over into my personality and my life in general.  I became much more outgoing.  I met so many people through the shop and I’m so happy that I did.  I became involved in our small community.  I became comfortable in my own skin.  I became happy simply being me.  When I finally started teaching full time, I couldn’t pull myself away from the shop, so I worked there part time.  I realize now that, yes, I had come to love my job, but I also loved the friendship my “boss” and I had cultivated.  We truly were a team.  I grew in such a positive way during that time and Megan was present for all of it.  I wasn’t ready to give all that up.  However, I wasn’t the only one evolving, growing, changing.  Megan was too.

    Several months ago, Megan broke the news to me that she’d be closing the shop.  Her shop was most definitely a success, but Megan was ready for a change.  She had new adventures in the works – ones that more directly aligned with her changing goals.  It’s not a sad story – the shop is now thriving under new ownership and Megan has since put into motion two incredible businesses – Less House More Home (if you’re looking for an interior stylist, she’s it) and The Boss Planner (“a goal-setting guide with a ‘get shit done’ attitude”).  If we thought our duo would suffer a break up after the shop was transferred over, boy were we wrong.  The blog you’re looking at now is a product of her – she set up each nook and cranny of my creative outlet and I’m incredibly thankful.  And I’m also so proud to call this chick my friend.  End sappiness.

    I don’t have a house she can decorate for me and that I can share with you, but I definitely own The Boss Planner!

    It’s the little things.  Like a cover you can decorate…
