i just need to say thank you one more time. and post my first ever mug selfie.
thank you for coming to see me at my first market on friday.so many of you came to meet me and buy from me that have been following me on instagram and it just blew me away. i have loved using instagram as a way to connect and share my pottery journey and to see so many of your faces in person was absolutely incredible. i felt such a wide range of intense emotions this past week as i was preparing. lots of stress, fear, excitement, and pride. i've said it a lot to my friends and family this week but this past week my overwhelming sense is that i am proud to be me. proud of what i've acheived so far and grateful to be where i am.
on my way home from the market i cried. i cried because i have realized a huge, deep passionate dream this week. i cried because i am honored to be learning how to run my own business. i cried thinking about the years in between - the years of yearning and feeling stuck. i am so grateful for those years and to be through them.
and as if that's not enough vulnerability, i'm going to share a text i sent to my husband the day of the market: "i had a moment today. a long moment where i panicked. i felt like there was no way i could do this. like seriously, no way. i came unhinged. then i realized, i don't need someone elses permission to stop, or to tell me i've done enough. so i declared it to myself. i've done enough, i've gone above and beyond my wildest expectations for this first market and tonight is going to be amazing no matter what." so here's to learning how to be strong, embracing the risks, believing in myself and watching my dreams come true. every terrifying step of the way.
thank you to each and every one of you for showing up in the ways you do: in person and through instagram. thank you for loving my work enough to buy it and for supporting me enough to follow along here on instagram.
stay tuned because some mountain saguaros are going to be up on etsy soon!!
