First time for everything........

So there seems to be alot of first for me right now..making my dream a reality and opening my own clothing boutique,starting a blog(scary)if you know me you would no the computer petrifies me..Also does anyone really care what I have to say??

So anyway,Here we go..

A little bio on me I have wanted to open my own clothing store for about 20 years but getting married and having children definitely put that on hold..I have a fantastic family..My husband is english and we have been together for 20 years and I have 3 beautiful children..cara 23-lee 22 and Josh 19..We moved to California 8 years ago to give our kids a better life..England is fantastic but not the best for teenage kids..So we gave up our jobs sold our house said goodbye to our family and friends and moved here..Has it been easy? not at all,was it worth it? most definitely! Life here is just....I don't know just all around better..Its hard to explain.

The one drawback is fashion. England is fantastic for being Hip and daring where as California (suburbia) is boring..Everyone dresses the same and when the women turn 40 they seem to be stuck in the same rut and never step out of their comfort zone.Why is that???Holiday turtlenecks,Christmas sweaters they should all be burned up!!!!
I remember growing up my mum(she is english)always bought us clothes that were the top fashion in england,but as we lived in Riverside,Calif and everyone wore 501 and izod polos(remember those? it was the early 80's) the kids always teased us..Anyways I loved the clothes and looking different to all my friends, so I blame my passion for fashion on my dear mum..

Getting back on track, so last year was the worst year of my life(so far)and I decided this year was going to be different so with the total backing of my husband and kids I gave up my management job and opened BOHO Boutique and Consignment..whew.
And I have to tell you even with the worry are people going to come and buy clothes, will they like my style, will I make rent the list could go on forever..I LOVE IT..
I walk thru the door every morning and smile its mine all mine I can do what I want, which is to help ladies of all ages look great at affordable prices whilst also reducing the environmental impact and helping and being part of the community
All my passion wrapped up in one store, now If I could just love the computer a little more I could start to enjoy doing this blogging thing:0)
