About 3 hours from now, 21 years ago, I walked down the block (I literally only lived a block away back then) and threw on the lights for the very first time. As I recall, we made $56 the first day open -- I was so proud!
I was 21 years old myself when I opened the store, which means from now on, I've been doing this longer than I haven't been doing it. Jinkies!
I'm wearing the teal and pink CE shirt today, to celebrate -- well, in my defense, it WAS the 1980s.
Plus, Ben lost his second tooth today, so it's a real day for milestones!
