Seriously, if you love lavender, really love lavender, then you'll absolutely adore both of these products.
From lavender to crazy night...
We headed to the basement last night after the tornado sirens began to whistle. Such a strange weather night. I really don't like it when tornadoes move through our Midwest skies at night. It's scary to not be able to see, but only an occasional burst of lightening brightens the dark night sky.
The path of the tornado, or should I say, tornadoes, (crazy) whipped through my little home town of Plattsburg. Homes were damaged, but no lives were lost. It's unusual to be getting severe weather this early. I'm hoping it's not a sign. Our Missouri weather can change at a drop of a hat. I've lived here most of my life, and I can honestly say that you should never take a tornado threat lightly. Most of the time you're safe, but there's always those times, you're not. That's why our homes are built with basements.
Interesting how this video was captured by tornado chasers. What a job! I'm thankful for folks like that. Every now and then when the skies turn black. I'll see their little vehicles around.
Again, very grateful no one was killed. Feeling empathy for those who lost their homes. These small town communities band together and strong bonds are formed even before a tragic event occurs like last night. Neighbors watch after neighbors, and folks say hello as you pass by. They even look you in the eyes when they're talking to you. Not as common as it used to be, and that really bothers me.
Don't forget to be an exception to the abnormal rule. It's not humanly normal to not recognize a fellow human being. It's just not healthy. We were designed to love one another and care about each other. It will go back, maybe. I have faith.
What's that saying? Moving on...
At the apothecary shop, we're planning spring open houses, excited about new products, and pondering May day celebrations.
I wont' mention the dreaded tax season. My file folder sits on the dining room table as a reminder. Hey, I wonder what happens if your tax information gets blown away by a tornado? I can envision my many expense receipts stuck to a fence post.
Things are changing in the way we market and correspond when it comes to events. I'm leaning towards electronic mail over the old fashioned kind when sending invites. I never thought I'd lean in that direction, but it makes sense. It's hard to argue or disagree with something that makes sense. Well, unless you're stubborn like me!
All kidding aside, the way we market is ever changing and the opportunity to grow and reach out to folks is growing, growing, popping, with oodles of platforms and ideas that I really love to incorporate.
Think Spring and good thoughts.
