Exciting Things Happening
As some of you might know, I have started working at a local bookstore in town. Wheatberry Books just opened Friday actually. I am so happy to be a part of this team. The owners are beautiful amazing people. They are excited to see my blog and might even let me run the blog on their website, or get me my own .com. I couldn't have asked for a better job. The other coworker, a junior in high school, is such a sweet girl! I really had fun chatting with her when she stopped by the bookstore. We both loved reading some of the poetry we have on the shelves. I'm thinking I will be reviewing one of those books here soon, maybe even posting a few of my own poetry pieces to set the mood(: Picture this small little bookstore, white shelves, white walls, christmas lights hanging from the windows, christmas tree branches lining the top of the shelves making the place even more beautiful than it already is. The place is heaven... I didnt know heaven could touch down to earth like this, but i am blessed to be with such an amazing group of people doing amazing things.
I am working on getting gifts for them. I have decided to make gift bags. Each bag will contain a book, the gifts inside with go with that book. Think of like Boxycharm or something like that. I will include one bookmark that will fit the theme, one candle that i would burn while reading the book, and one more gift, each special to the book itself. It is hard coming up with everything but i have to say, two books have been ordered. One i am waiting on ordering. now i just have to get the candles that i think will fit, make the bookmarks, and choose little gifts that would go with the book. My budget for each bag is around $10-15 give or take a few bucks.
I'm beyond excited to have this job! I cannot wait to see what is in store for me next!
