A distant memory for #navigatingthroughnovember .  In 2004, I opened my beautiful gift and antiques shop called Bally Eden. "Cottage Comfort Vintage Vogue" was my tagline. .  At the same time, I got pregnant and then had my son in 2005. .  And then the US entered the depression that they denied was one. I refused to take food from my baby's mouth. .  And so in January 2007, we shut my lovely shop down and I came home with my toddler and a dread of being trapped in the house with him. Except, then my next choice was to start writing. .  One of the last souvenirs of my shop-ownership is this tin of Milk bath. Bally Eden had a bath line. Sigh. .  I learned that you need to follow your heart even if that takes you to failure. Not all failure is within your control. Endings lead to beginnings. And retail is murderous. .  #blastfromthepast #memories #mywisdomlessons #ballyeden #taleswithfriends #emotionalintelligence #ubercreative #bathroom #vintage
