I have heard it said that we all need 3 things to live a happy life: Someone to love, something to do, and something to to look forward to. Well, I must be a happy soul since I can always bring to mind long lists of people I love, loads of things to do, and many, many things to look forward to.
As I write this blog, just before heading off to the Atlanta Gift Market for Treasures Boutique again this week, I realize that I am really looking forward to the change of seasons here in in the heartland. I know, I know, on July 11th, there is still a lot of Summer to love! But this time of year, when our wonderful fall home décor and apparel comes rolling in on huge pallet at Treasures Boutique, and I am getting tired of watering my outside flowerpots at home, I always look forward to the beginning of Fall. What do I love about Fall? Let me count the reasons...
- The Fall Scents – apple cinnamon, the crisp fall air, and pumpkin spice, to name a few.
- The Fall Weather – not too hot, and not too cold – it’s the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors.
- The Fall Colors – orange and red leaves, colorful pumpkins and gourds, Husker red everywhere. We can't wait to bring our Treasures customers the full fall experience, with beautiful new fall home décor, floral décor and fall accessories - coming soon!
- The Fall Apparel – long sleeves, long pants, and soft sweaters. (Watch for the launch of our great fall apparel both in-store and online at columbustreasures.com)
And so, on the rare occasions that I am every feeling blue, I just need to realize that I already have all I need to be happy. I think about the many people I love - my family, friends, customers and associates. I think about all that I have to do - well, as a business owner, wife, homemaker, and mother, that list is always endless. And, lastly, I think of all that I have to look forward to and the blessings that the change of seasons is sure to bring. Looking for more reasons to look forward to fall?
