"You can't put a dollar value on the lifestyle that gives you the freedom you want." -Gary Esterly
After a recent conversation with a gentleman about our lifestyle, I got to thinking about just how many folks we encounter in our line of work that are curious about our family business and how it makes our lifestyle so unusual. This curiosity always brings to my mind one of my favorite quotes of my father's: "You can't put a dollar value on the lifestyle that gives you the freedom you want."
And, being the month for giving thanks, I thought I should blog about this lifestyle of ours that I am so thankful for. First off, I am very thankful for my dad. Without him, this adventurous creative lifestyle wouldn't be nearly so much fun -or rewarding! If it wasn't for him, our little Cottage In The Woods wouldn't be the business it is today, and we certainly wouldn't be having so many laughs along the way. Having days where you see faces like this waiting for you in the shop, how could things ever be boring?
