Last week was amazing, seeing my clothing on the rack in a boutique and on TV. Last week Flaunt Boutique was on Twin Cities Live talking about their five year anniversary and showcasing some of the items in the shop. I got to be one of the models and wear one of my designs, paired with a Minnesota Made T. It has been so much fun to put on red lipstick and get all dressed up and be a part of the Flaunt Accessories team.

OK, now I have to get honest here for a minute. I'm changing direction.
All of this excitement has far exceeded my expectations for the first six months of Cedar and Cypress Designs. The products from Haiti are doing well, the website is great and this holiday season, financially speaking...from a business perspective has been great, our best! I opened Made in America, started a clothing line and there is even more exciting news to come in the new year!
It has all been incredible, but I have let my self down in the process. I let myself get caught up in so many worldy things. I honestly don't know the last time I volunteered or gave of my time. I haven't stopped to really pray over all the blessings like I should. I'm not sure I was ever really great at this to be honest, but I know I can do better than what I am doing now.
This week is Thanksgiving and I have so much to be thankful for. And if I am going to be honest, I am going to start with myself. I am so thankful that I found Christ, that He died so that I might live. I am thankful for the exciting things happening right now, but I am most thankful for you God. I pray that I might live to show that Lord. I give my life to you Lord and you alone and for that privilege, I am thankful.
