Favorite Things: Open Windows, Open Doors

September is my favorite month! Although we have had a few days where it truly feels like summer around here (after a very pleasant, not-too-hot summer), we are looking forward to cooler weather. And that means there are so many exciting things happening in our community! Fall festivals, arts and crafts bazaars, football and volleyball games . . . . and raking leaves.

OK, so raking leaves is NOT my most favorite part of autumn, but it just seems like once the weather turns cooler we have more time and energy for things like baking and cooking, sewing and crafting, and writing. The yard and garden work is wrapping up and now it’s time to think about the holidays.

http://www.mamaslittletreasures.com Autumn is a time of transition and it is a time for new beginnings. It is a time of “open windows, open doors,” literally and figuratively. We can now open the windows of our homes to let in the September sunshine and the cool breeze off our lake. But we can now also open a door on the future.

Here at Vintage Mama’s Cottage we’re in the process of opening a new little shop on Main Street in Our Town with several other women entrepreneurs in our community. We’re getting our inventory built up and getting the displays set up. After painting, cleaning, organizing, and working hard to make the Apple Pie Boutique a charming little shop, we’ll be opening the doors soon.

That open door is my next opportunity to build the business that God has been leading me to for the past ten years. Open doors and open windows – opportunities are waiting for us to take the next step and welcome a new adventure. What are you waiting for?
