Jim and I have a goofy ritual that we use when we are "signing off" on something. We mimic pressing a rubber stamp on an ink pad and then stamping the paper that needs approval. And then we laugh, even when it is something serious.
This evening, I gave the electronic "rubber stamp" of approval to my broker to submit the Letter of Intent on the space in Old Town. He had done a wonderful job incorporating my changes, additions and concerns into the LOI. As nervous as I felt when I read the original LOI, I felt very calm today when I reviewed it. (As opposed to "I was not calm" - those of you who know me know what I'm talking about - ha!)
I am eager to see what happens and what the landlord says about the submission. I hope that they will want to draw up the lease documents so that we can move forward soon and I can put the many other things that are now waiting on the leasing in motion!
The past three months have really been amazing. I've loved the opportunity to learn about my new business and balance it with a peaceful personal life. While I know that will change again soon as I ramp up the efforts on Zoe, I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity. I think so often about what my days will be like running and working at Zoe and I can't wait to get started!
