Car Accident…Etsy Shop? | Coffee Chat

As most of you may remember, I shared a few upcoming changes in our lives about a month ago and everyone was so supportive, uplifting, and wanted to stay in the loop of things — which makes my heart happy to know that people all around want to pray for us and send good vibes our way, we are so grateful! This past week was super busy, so busy that I had absolutely NO time to finish putting together Friday’s post. Things come up, routines change, and life happens…

Monday’s are always icky, but last Monday was rough on us — my husband was in a minor car accident, but thank God he is okay and nothing happened to him or the other people involved. He has been working crazy hours and that evening he was going into work with little sleep — needless to say, the car accident was definitely a wake up call to slow down, take care of ourselves, and enjoy life. 

About a month ago, I told you guys that we were in the beginning stages of moving forward with weight loss surgery. Well we finally have a date for my husbands surgery! He will be having his surgery before I do — since I work in a school, I get the summer months off and I will be scheduling my surgery around my time off, so I don’t have to use my personal/sick leave for it. I will be taking a week off to be with him while he recovers and then his parents and mine will help him while I work for the following weeks. It’s going to be hard and hectic for awhile but I know we will manage. I hope my little blog doesn’t get neglected though, my family always comes first but this has also become a source of income now, so it’s almost like my second job (even though it doesn’t feel like a job at all) I don’t want it to suffer, so I will be working my butt off these next weeks to get ahead. His surgery is less than a month away, so we have lots to do before then. 

As if major health changes weren’t enough, I am also working on opening my own Etsy store! I was hoping last Friday would be the grand opening, but as you can see, we’ve been super busy and it didn’t happen. I have few things to finish up and it should be up and running soon! You may be wondering what in the world I will be selling?! Well, since SO many of you loved my blog planner, I will have that up for sale, along with other printables — think house management planners, to do lists, blog related printables, personal life planners, AND I will also be having stock photography! That’s why I have to push the opening day back too, I don’t have the images perfected quite yet. A lot of you love my photography and images I use, so I figured, why not sell them for everyone else to use. I will have different categories of photography that you can use for your blog to overlay text on — don’t worry, I won’t have anything super expensive. Stock photography can be SO pricey, but not in my shop. šŸ˜‰ 

I think that about does it for updates my friends. Seems like not much has changed, but at the same time SO much has gone on. Thank you for your continued support and love! I hope you all have the best week. Sending you all virtual hugs! Until next time lovelies — I’ll be back Wednesday with the regular content you are used to. 

PS — What do you think of the idea of calling these little updates coffee chats? I’d like to think that we are chatting in a cute coffee shop over some lattes/tea and some macaroons! šŸ™‚
