I’m feeling super emotional today over my 2nd anniversary of my business, Baby Time. I started this shop out of my home with my online store and through prayer and serendipity I opened my brick and mortar just 8 months later. I’m not going to say it’s easy, nor an instant money maker – but I love it and feel like I’m furthering my calling as a doula and educator with my Baby Time business. Most of all I’m thankful for my husband and family who have been 100% supportive with all the hours, blood, sweat and tears shed over this dream of mine. And I’m humbled and teary over the support of my customers and community who have supported me over these last 2 (2 1/2) years.

 

Thank you!!!

 

If you’re local, please come over tonite for our VIP night 7-9pm or celebration on Saturday 11-4.

We had a wonderful time on our vacation and got to see some of the beautiful sites of Northeast Iowa! Some of my family are from Strawberry Point and Elkader. And we headed out to Bellevue State Park to enjoy the views of the Mississippi and the Butterfly Garden!
