Welcome to Sweet Memories

We all dream.....

We all dream. We sit in the house on a cold, blustery day and dream of our garden in Spring. We look at pictures in magazines and dream of a perfect kitchen or bath. We dream of Norman Rockwell-like Family gatherings and Christmas card inspiring Holidays. And....we dream of long, beautiful Summer Days spent in a spot just like this....the breezes rustling through the trees, the birds singing....the smell of roses in the air!! Yes....we all dream. And then....reality!! We are very close to saying goodbye to July. Actually...we are close to saying goodbye to the Summer of 2012 all together.....and I can't wait!!!!!! By the time August rolls around I am thinking about Fall. Well....I am MORE than thinking Fall....I am creating it. I gather my thoughts....and all of the new merchandise that I cannot wait to unveil....and get to work. But....this time of year....I am, also, thinking about Christmas. What I have, already, gotten in....what is still coming....where to put it and what themes to use in each of the rooms in the gift shop.When I start to think about all of that....I start to think about organizing....(when things are not organized I get a little crazy....and I can't think about anything else) and, usually, when I think about organizing....I think about rearranging (they kinda go hand in hand) and then comes the "are we efficient enough" thoughts...and then the "how can we be more efficient" thoughts. Just like Mother Nature has her seasons....so does running a business!! I know how hot and humid it is....(I work in front of an oven all day....believe me I know...) and I know that all of you are still looking forward to the rest of the Summer....perhaps dreaming of at least a few days in a spot just like this....but I am moving on. I have things to do....organizing, rearranging, planning, decorating, creating..... I just want to say....goodbye July....hello HALLOWEEN!!!!!


  1. I adore each season before it comes and then wish it were over once it hits... That is, all except for Fall. I understand completely. I do. I can't wait either and just wanted to say I'm right there with you :)

  2. Hahaha.....that's FUNNY and very, very true!!! It IS always better in our dreams!!! (except for Fall!! ;))
