Year of Firsts

August 17, 2015

This has been a year of firsts for me: first time stand up paddle boarding, first time raising chickens (19 of them – yikes!), and first time opening an online retail store.

Stand up paddling boarding was awesome and I can’t wait to do it again. There are many beautiful creeks, rivers and lakes to be explored on a SUP in the great state of New Hampshire.

Raising and caring for 19 chickens has been terrifying, challenging, and ultimately rewarding. Growing up in suburban New Jersey, I never imagined twenty or so years later that I’d be living on a hobby farm with goats and chickens.

And well, this is actually the second time I’ve had an online retail store. For several years I had an eBay store, and I’ve sold through eBay for over 14 years. But this is my first time branching out on my own and carrying a collection of products with a defined purpose and mission – affordable and trendy made in the USA women’s clothing.

So hurray for firsts!
