First Day of the Rest of My Life

Today is the BIG day.

My LAST day at the job I have worked at since August of 2005. I can’t believe it’s finally arrived- and that I’ll be able to create Lettered Olive, full-time.
What a cool feeling. :-)
In honor of this special day, I have created a Blog Award.
It’s the “My Blog Inspired Someone Today” Award. “Meeting” all of you creative ladies and reading your blogs has really inspired me to be creative and to pursue my dreams over the past few months.

So here it is:

The person I’d like to award it to first is: Rhoda at Southern Hospitality.
I admire her drive and am inspired by her blog on a regular basis. I visited her blog yesterday, and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I CAN start my own business, and be successful. She’s proof! :-) So, if you haven’t see it, definitely check it out. She is a remarkable lady! The definition of the word INSPIRATIONAL.

Rhoda, there are no rules with this award, just pass it on if you are inspired by someone and really want to tell them. :-)

    I only found Rhoda’s blog yesterday. I checked it out today and saw the award and of course had to check you out. I love your blog as well as Rhoda’s. I am a new blogger and look forward to learning more about it as time goes on. I have had 2 businesses and have sold them. The first was an Early Learning Center and the second was a gift shop. They were both wonderful learning experiences for me. Congratulations on going into business for yourself. I’m so happy for you and your mom. Keep us posted as to when your new website will be up.

    I just came across your blog through Southern Hospitality’s…and love it!! You’re officially on my Daily Reads list! Congratulations on this exciting new adventure, and best wishes to you! There are some similar things simmering in my own life so it’s very exciting to hear about the success you’re experiencing. :)
