I can't believe my last blog post was in September! Shame on me! I'm sure some of you have been wondering if I had dropped off the face of the Earth in the past 6 months...well, actually I did...sort of. I've begun a completely new life. I've divorced my husband of 18 years (don't worry, we're still friends!), uprooted my sons and my business and relocated to my home state, Pennsylvania. It's been quite an emotional roller-coaster with many tears, some laughter...and quite a few adjustments for all of us.
I'm fine. Each day I'm feeling less fear and more pride and confidence. I wasn't sure how all of this was going to work out for us, but generally all went as well as can be expected. My children, of course were my main priority and the boys have adjusted beautifully. They are quite remarkable young men! And as for Sherri Blum Designs, well so-far, so-good. You see, my ex-hubby is the VP of his company. Sherri Blum Designs really didn't need to "bring home the bacon" for my family. I had simply reinvested my earnings right back into new product and developing the company. Now, however, SBD must support me. It was quite a scary thought, especially in light of our country's current economic woes. However, we're actually one of the companies that is keeping afloat. I'm able to support my family with some "life-style adjustments" of course. It's actually turned out to be quite a good life lesson for the boys and we're all building character through this experience. We're happy and healthy.
So there is the story of the missing six months, in a nutshell. I'd like to ask you to continue to support Sherri Blum Designs if possible. It is my hope that the company will continue to grow and prosper. Please browse the site when shopping for birthday gifts, shower gifts, or simply when you're redecorating. We will continue to provide new products, short lead-times and unsurpassed customer service. And thank you to those of you who have emailed, called and provided concern and support over the past several months. Your kindness is appreciated more than you could imagine.
