Shoppe Info

Just a little heads up.  I am closing my online shoppe until further notice due to my mom’s illness.  She is really beginning to feel the effects of the cancer and I know it is spreading.  This could go on for a very long time I am afraid.  Then again it could be over in a matter of months.  No one really knows.  But I do feel I must set my priorities.  And don’t want to even have to consider business when planning my days, weeks and months for the foreseeable future.  She is insisting that we do not cancel our vacation plans (Williamsburg, VA in September) and I know secretly she is wanting to say just the opposite.  I think she is becoming pretty worried that this increase in pain is just the tip of the iceberg and I am afraid she is right.  I didn’t tell her that the reservations were not even made after I learned of her diagnosis.  But I also want her in no way to feel she is the reason.  So I am just nodding and if we can go, we will and if we can’t it certainly is not the end of the world. 

If however you have a pending order, I am working this week and next to get them out the door.  I appreciate your  business and your patience.

More later…recipes…reports…and a Giveaway right around the corner!

I am so sorry that your mother is so ill.


I’m just new to your blog today…but I’m so sorry your mom is so ill with cancer…and you’re right…seeing someone on her (or his) way is the greatest gift we can give…

You and your mom are in my thoughts. I love your blog…and my whole family loves the soap! It smells soooo nice! Glad I have four bars!!! :o)


awww so sorry your mom is ill with cancer, my grandma passed away from it a few years back so I can relate. *hugs* and *prayers* for your mom.

I’m so sorry your mother is ill. I have been where you are with my dear father. You are making the right choice to be there for her. I know you will regret your decision. Vacations and business will continue at another time but your time with her will be a precious treasure to hold in your memory forever.

I too am so sorry to hear that your Mom is having more pain and complications. I completely understand your wanting to devote your time to her and her needs. Just know that your Mom AND you are in my thoughts and prayers. I have enjoyed our little visits at the library AND am certainly enjoying your delicious coffee.

I am so sorry to read about your mother. I am new to your blog. And, I do want to say that I love the site.

You have done a great job and your site is full of good information.

So sorry to hear about your mom feeling the effects of her illness… My best to you both, and take all the time you need… We will all keep reading! 🙂


You can never be too generous with your time and love. My personal motto! What a great decision to slow things down a bit and devote some more time to be with your mom. You will never regret it.

I will anxiously await the shoppe re-opening! I never got my coffee order placed! Oh well, it will be that much more delicious when I wait awhile to taste it again.

You will be in my thoughts
