Let's not forget, this all began with soap. After the holidays, however, sales dropped and the soap got sad and lonely and I began getting antsy and that is never good. Thus the writing picked up and the weight loss goals were set and we were off on this blogging journey. I aptly named it 'The Dish'. See the play on words there :-)
<Let me interject for just a moment. My daughter just walked in from spending the night with her grandmother and dropped off a big, beautiful bag of caramel popcorn. Guess who must not read my blog for cryin' out loud!!!! My mother-in-law is fired.>
I digress... soap...
So, in the beginning there was a girl who desperately wanted to be able to find a job she loved and to make a career of it. I love organizing and managing and coordinating and I'm really good at it. I also love planning and creating and all things artsy. I also wish I had some freedom to be able to serve and help and minister when there was need. A traditional 9-5 job doesn't allow for that. Working for myself seems like a dream job, but I don't provide company insurance, LOL, so that's out. So instead I decided to have two jobs. (Looking back now this doesn't make the most sense.) The traditional one and the artsy, organized by me, flexible, amazing one. Thus 'The House of Milk and Honey' was established. I experimented and researched and found products I liked and recipes that I liked and started making soap. I took that soap to my 9-5 job and let the ladies there sample. They loved the smells and offered feed back on all manner of soap related things ~ suds, smell, cleanliness, dryness, oiliness ~ and placed orders. Yay! Then they started asking if I made other pampering related things ~ lotions, balms, salts. So I did. And they were great. And then it was Christmas and sales were high. Presents and all, I guess. But now we are post-Christmas but pre-Valentine's Day and it's quiet. Reflection isn't always good for me. Time on my hands and all. I find myself wishing for ways to make my dream job a reality. While I am waiting to win the lottery, what I'd like to do is to fill the silence with YOUR voices. Reply and tell me what job your currently doing and do you feel fulfilled? Is your job awesome and you feel complete in your work or do you long for something more and different? Do you work from home or at a location away from home? Do you homeschool? Do you like it? Let's share and hopefully my cup will be filled with stories of longing, laughter, life, love and joy. ~ Jennifer
