Hitting Milestones...

According to Dictionary.com (I love that site! Also Thesaurus.com) a milestone is: "a significant event or stage in the life, progress, development, or the like of a person, nation, etc."

So, I'm feeling kind of philosophical today... Been thinking a lot about our future and our present (my husband lost his job due to this economy last month), and we are contemplating our next step in his life and what our next plans are. All the while that's in limbo, I'm still working my tail off at my 'normal' job (because somehow making kids clothing doesn't seem like a 'normal' job ;) and sewing for SLD!

Left and right I feel as though we are hitting Milestones of some sort, and I wonder if I need to stop and take it all in?

Often there is something bittersweet about milestones. For example, a child's 1st birthday (yay, but at the same time "Holy cow they grow too fast!') or when they head off to school and so on. But do some milestones happen with glee and excitement and no looking back? Today was a biggie. See below?

One hundred sales kind of sneaked right up on me. :) Man I'm flabbergasted! I guess I am a bit scared about the next 100... questions float around in my head like "will people still want this?" and "can I stay current?" I guess what I'm saying is, there may be something just a tad bittersweet about this milestone too, and I wonder if they are all like that?

Anyhow, something you may not know about me...I'm honest. I tell it like it is and I rarely hold it back. Good, bad and ugly ;) So if you're still reading, you're going to get it all in this blog. Keepin' it real :)

So while this milestone is AMAZING (wow, doing the happy dance!) it's also a bit daunting. Just thought you should know ;)


  1. Wow, 100 sales went fast! Congratulations on all of them! As for staying "current", I have no doubt that you will:) It is amazing how we evolve and adapt. Keep up the AWESOME work!

  2. Congratulations!! That is inspiring. I am currently on 2 sales (and over the moon about it ) Can't wait to hit the big 100. Great job!!!

  3. That is huge! I still remember who my 100th sale was!
