The Process

I struggle to find things to talk about on this blog- i always feel like it should have a theme...or a certain angle to it. But, life isn't organized like that, so I am writing this blog about this crazy process of opening a storefront!

I have been running Ali J Boutique as a traveling boutique for three years, but not until about 6 months ago did I feel the push to expand into a storefront. It seemed way too impossible, with my husband and my 4 kids being priority. BUT!! God has sure showed me that what I thought would make it impossible are the very things that make it possible!! A husband who is so supportive, can run the house as well as I can or even better, and friends and family who are so willing to help it is incredible. I have learned how to ask for help and not feel bad about it!!! And the kids- Ethan and Emri are so excited to help mommy in the store (when I can...) and Crew and Ayla are very flexible and love to hang out with Grandma. So there it is! I have gone through a journey already and I haven't even opened yet! But, I am now EXCITED not SCARED to begin. The Lord runs my business just as He runs my life, and I am completely relieved, because I know He has great blessings in store!!

Ali J Boutique will now be open Fridays and Saturdays, 9-5!! Come in for a warm welcome, a positive atmosphere, and helpful staff ready to please. I say "thank you" in advance for supporting this venture and in that way, supporting my family.

Thank YOU!!!!
