I wear many hats as the owner of this business. From creative director to accountant, media relations to showroom custodian, but my favorite job is inventory acquisitions. Sometimes I am on the hunt for something specific, which is the hardest to do. Other times, gorgeous pieces just present themselves almost as if they are begging to join the other pieces of the inventory. "Pick me, pick me!" they seem to say - I am thrilled to have these gorgeous silver grey green chairs join the crew to work for your event! These would be great at your lounge seating area or sweetheart table! Now for names..... Check out the other inventory at www.lostandfoundvintagerentals.com
Today, I went PHONE FREE for two hours by accident. Have you ever been in a hurry, helping kids get out the door on time, making sure you have your purse and keys, the door is locked, dogs fed and you get to your destination and realize you laid your phone down on the kitchen counter to tie your own shoes and left it there?! That happened to me today. At first, I felt panic. Oh no! What if someone needs me? What if I have an accident and need to call for help? What if I see some amazing thing at Homegoods that I need to send a photo of to my planner friend who has me on the hunt for something particular? What if a bride has a question about inventory or a photographer wants to book studio time? All these things ran through my head in a millisecond. I decided to forge on, dropping my son off at school without it, because he was going to be late if I went back. I contemplated going back in between the drop off and my errands, but I didn't. And you know what? I was ok. In fact, I was better than ok. I was able to listen to the radio for the first time in, I don't know how long, because I use drive time to return phone calls. I was able to find the earrings I was hunting down that otherwise I would have probably given up on due to the anxiety I had with 15 emails coming in within an hour and my phone is ringing off the hook. I remembered *almost* everything on my grocery list without my phone's notes app to remind me. I casually strolled through Homegoods and found a few amazing things I probably wouldn't have seen otherwise because I would have had my head in my phone replying to someone. I also walked past a display at Kohls that I otherwise wouldn't have seen, which introduced me to a line of products that I fell in love with and now I am wearing perfume for the first time in probably 25 years, and I love it! So two hours without my phone ended up being like a little time out break for myself. Once home, I had a slew of emails and invoices to send, but am feeling a little refreshed and happy and ready to tackle my to do list. Has this ever happened to you? If so, how did you handle it? Did you panic under the pressure and go back for it or did you forge on?
