My first job was in a bookstore. Although I was only sixteen, that job inspired me to one day open a bookstore of my own. I grew up, got married, and had my children. My husband and I lived in a state pretty far away from most of our family, and with the rising cost of childcare for two girls, decided it would be more economical and better for our girls if I stayed at home.
I loved being with my girls, but I grew desperate for a way to feel productive and accomplished.
