Last night was so cozy and nice. My friends and I talked about life until midnight, we cried and we laughed. Gillis woke up at one point so I asked him if he wanted to come downstairs and lay down on the couch meanwhile we sat talking. He snuggled up on the couch and I could see how much he enjoyed being there with us, hearing the adults talking and all the lit candles in the room. Just before I went to sleep I thought about how grateful I am that I have these amazing friends. I’ve found home in them, and it’s the first time I feel this way. My friends have been an enormous support during the divorce. It was probably when I felt at my worst and they came to help me, without a moment’s hesitation, that I realized that my friends will be there for me even when I’m in a crisis. That was an important and emotional realization for me.
Speaking of something else, today it’s Friday! I sneaked of to Flattered this morning and took a look at our ballerina shoes that now have got (fake)fur, incredibly cozy.
I love our boots. I often talk about LCC in the blog, which is natural as I’m operative in the company. However, Flattered has also gone through some changes and had an important journey during the same year. Today we exist, in physical form, in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Belgium, England, USA, Hong Kong and Dubai. I remember the pitch meeting at VRG (Rizzo), how we showed our first shoe sample and how nervous we were. At that point we only had indoor ballerina shoes in a few colors. Today we have lots of models. This year we’ve started to make boots. However, there is a rumor that we’re going to make heels soon as well (finally!). Now I’m going to head off to our next LCC meeting, I’ve got almost an entire day at the office today which is quite unusual. Tonight I’m going to a charity dinner for Project Playground.
