It's March! This morning I woke up to sunshine that looked strangely like the light that shines through your windows on a rainy summer morning. It wasn't, of course, a rainy summer morning, and upon opening the blinds I was struck by the, instead, wintery-ness of the light. But it WAS a nice way to awaken.
March marks the birth of my first child (and I think I'm almost done making her birthday presents...a refinished table and chairs, a cloth book, and some felt food) as well as the birth of New Leaf. I can't believe that my baby is turning 2 and that New Leaf is already a year old as well. When Maria came up with the idea of starting the business, I gladly joined in but I'm not sure we'd be anywhere without her vision, her drive, and her enthusiasm. In fact, I'm not sure I really believed we would actually make a go of this business-idea last March. I often wonder how much I really bring to this business and whether Maria really needs me...but I am grateful to be a part of something that I believe is greater than it seems at first sight. So, Happy Birthday New Leaf! and thanks Maria for letting me in on something exciting!
