Opening day!!!

CHA opened this morning & Circus Rose and Project Essentials officially debuted! I'm so excited & proud. I opened a box yesterday with REAL product in it, some of my coaster jumbles and I cried. I just burst into tears three times, wishing my mom could've been here to see this. Wishing I could share it with her {...there I go again - still choked up}. People tell me she can see me & everything I've done, and on one level I know that is true - but...I dunno. It's just been rough. I wish Matt was here so he could see it launch. I feel like I've given birth to an idea - maybe I'm just emotional. Maybe it's sleep deprivation. Who knows. I am so grateful for every one's reaction to my line & the line Ginger & I did together. People seem to like all the lines IP has this time around - it's really exciting!

Today I got to see Kate, Emily F, Stacey, Debby, Claire & Virginia. Not bad for never leaving the booth!
