Okay, it's been un peu of a wild ride chez Passionflower lately.....as you know my longtime beloved manager, Miss Becky Tonkin took her show on the road and moved to Astoria where she has been posting really awesome pics like this one above which let us know that she is alive and well and as awesome as always. I miss her something fierce....And in the meantime, I hired another manager and she worked here for a total of four days (ouch) and there it was the end of October going into the holiday season and potential for shipwreck was looming. But lo and behold, the winds calmed, the storm broke, and those lucky stars that follow me around shone their little light on the good ship Passionflower and now all is well with the world (that's kind of the short fairytale version but accurate)....
So may I introduce you to my new management team: two amazing young women (both of whom, curiously enough are going through their Saturn returns) Lila (on the left) and Jamie (on the right) have both been working here a while and stepped up to the plate and said, "Heck yeah, we can run this store for you"....And I think they can. I know they can. As in we had a fabulous month in November and my new team rocked it. So I couldn't be happier, ecstatic really
(like kissing the ground and thanking my lucky stars kind of ecstatic), that we're going into the holiday season with a seasoned crew and a stable team. And I'm really looking forward to where we're going to take the store moving into the New Year! Wow, this sounds, uncharacteristically, like me welcoming change. Who'd a thunk it? And another thing I think about is that I have a really young crew working here. There's all told eight of us who work at Passionflower and five of us are under thirty. That's a pretty young crew. And I'm excited about that too! So that's my little update for you in the middle of this holiday madness. Just file it away in your " sometimes things really do work out the way they're supposed to" file. :)
