Well, a week ago I did not imagine this is what I would be doing. I think all of us are reeling under the weight of all of the information, reports, and changing status’ coming our way. How to navigate and prioritize our energies and needs. What do we do for our families, friends and anyone we are responsible for? What to do?
I’ve started to see businesses like ours closing in Nashville—one of my adopted
hometowns. I am sad that this needs to happen, but also have been admiring their bravery. A recent post on Instagram from The Bookshop @thebookshopnashville has given me the courage to do the thing I don’t want to do at all.
My responsibility weighs on me. If I can have ANY positive impact as a business owner to my local community, as an employer to my employees, as a daughter to my mom, and as a mother and wife, I need to do it. The health and safety of our customers, employees and our families is my highest priority. By staying open, it encourages everyone to come out and shop. I want to encourage everyone to stay home. Be good to yourselves. Take care. Eat well, clean your closets, listen to music, take walks, watch a funny movie. Look for ways to help others—donate, buy gift cards, amplify small/local businesses and their plans. Smile at folks. Take a deep breath.

Temporary is the operative word here. We WILL reopen. And when we do there will be a party. And, yes, we will serve rosé and have discounts and turn up the music really loud.
Until then, keeping it virtual…
