It's difficult to keep your chin up and keep going with this job when sales get so slow. As far as I've heard this is a common theme among sellers right now although I personally don't recall May being such a bad month usually? I am dreading what July will be like.
I've been gone a little while! I had the chance 20 something years ago to do a study abroad in England with Brigham Young University. It was honestly one of the best four months of my life! I recently got back in touch with two friends from that time and we went back to London the first week of May.
Our home sweet home back in the day - 27 Palace Court!
It was a DREAM trip! I couldn't believe I was there again.
I am in love with England and London never disappoints. It was everything I remembered it being!
We had an amazing week full of plays and musicals each night, touring Windsor Castle, Hampton Court, seeing things we missed before and a few new treats like the London Eye. We were there when Princess Charlotte was born and everything was lit up pink for her. I really think London is the best big city in the world and it was fun to pretend to be rich for the week, shopping in Harrods and having afternoon tea at Fortnum & Masons. Sigh.
My husband and parents were so great at taking care of the kids so I could go for a week and now I am back to the grind. List list list so I can save my pennies up to take my whole family back!
It had been a very sad week for our family, neighborhood and church family that came to an end yesterday morning when we learned of the passing of our sweet neighbor and friend.
She was 27 and had been fighting lung cancer for almost two years.
I hate cancer.
Christina was just a light to everyone she came in contact with. She was always so positive, so upbeat, she had a great laugh and you felt like you were her best friend when you were with her.
She also loved music and was my daughters' piano teacher over the past year and a half. I am so grateful that she shared that gift!
Lauren is determined to have me find another teacher quickly for her because "Miss Christina wants me to keep playing and I know she will be able to hear me."
She leaves behind her husband and darling five year old son. It's just heartbreaking. You can read more about her story here. I hope I have a good week - everything I make this week I plan on donating to their family. Please help by donating and sharing this link if you feel it is something you can do.
