My little neighborhood in Cville 💕. Tucked in between those buildings is my shop - @shopatdarling.
Today, at the store, while walking around a crowded shop, hearing customers say, “This is my new favorite shop!” and “Everything is so cute in here!” or “I love all the jewelry in here!” I had this moment that stopped me in my tracks. That out-of-body moment, re-remembering, “They’re talking about MY shop.” I was overwhelmed with gratitude in that moment. Gratitude that I’ve been placed here, to steward this shop, to curate it with love and community, to live this crazy #bossbabe
life. It sure has challenged me more than anything before, I’ve had breaking points and struggles aplenty. But I’ve also seen so much JOY, and not just within myself, but in those who step inside the shop. ✨
This week, I also had multiple customers comment on how peaceful the shop is, one even saying it felt like a spa. What a compliment! What an answer to prayer! What an affirmation that the spirit of the Lord is here. ✨
Practicing that #attitudeofgratitude
today, and every day. 🙌
