Our New Munster Showroom
Our Hunt For A New School
During all this time of opening, Joe and I were in the process of finding a school for our oldest son to get the education he needs. As our oldest is entering into fifth grade next year, we’ve been looking for schooling that can specifically focus on the IEP he was born with. He was born with dyslexia. We had him tested at a few different schools to see if they would be able to provide him the tools he needs to work on his learning abilities and make him feel like he can still be a kid! During our school’s spring break, Joe took him to a great doctor in the city for two days of brain scans. They were able to tell us how his brain works, where the disconnect happens and strategies to help overcome his IEP. It is such a blessing that we were able to get more information. We've found a GREAT school for the boys that we're really excited about that they will start next school year.
Finding The Perfect Fit For Our Family
For the last three years, we’ve had the most amazing au pair, Yaha, that we were so blessed to know. We are so excited that she got the opportunity to spread her wings and move into the city while going back to school. In the midst of opening up the Munster location and looking for a new school for our boys next year, we also were looking for a replacement for an irreplaceable person!! We’ve still gotten to spend lots of weekends with Yaha, but we have a great new au pair that just flew to us on Saturday! I’ve got to say, it is NOT an easy process. Especially because having great support in child care allows Joe and I to be able to spend time working on our business knowing our kids are happy and safe. It's a work in progress, but our new au pair has been great so far. We're excited to get to know her more and welcome her into our family!
Meet With Meg Design Program
Most of my time at the store lately has been spent lately working on design projects for our Meet With Meg program! The girls and I have been having so much fun lately working together designing spaces or even whole homes for all the amazing families that have signed up. It’s been great getting to have a creative outlet! I will say, the operations and logistics of running a business is not necessarily my thing (I am definitely more creative than analytical) so I’ve been loving that I can focus on projects like these! I love that we're able to create spaces to match each family and home's personality and style. Click HERE to learn more about the program. Some of our projects are so different but equally as fun and one-of-a-kind. Here are two living rooms we've done recently:
