Happy Two Years to Us @fifisalbany
Can you believe it’s been Two Years since the change in ownership of Fifi’s? I can’t either. It seems like just yesterday I was mulling over the idea of buying it. Thoughts like; Do I want to keep regular hours, definitely a yes to not working 14 hour shoots, driving 2 hours each way, and getting up at 3am sometimes for 5am call times.
Can I work not doing that much makeup anymore? That one not so much. Do I wan’t to stay in the same place all the time and be married to a business?? Well I had already been a Freelancer for the better part of 15 years and was already married to my job. Honestly the scariest part for me was knowing I would have to be in the same place all the time and not do makeup were the dreaded ones. Fast forward two years. Two years, I love it more then I ever could imagine I would. And it’s all because of all of you.
I love coming to work and helping style you for all your events, even the sad ones. I love it for the enthusiasm you show when you like what you’re finding and how you’re finding it. I love when a friend tags me on FB because we tied for BEST OF THRIFT STORES in the Alt Weekly when I had no idea it was even a thing! I love our long and short chats. I love all your personalities and unique qualities. I love how are all so thoughtful and caring and patient and kind.
Thank you for supporting a small business owner, a female business owner, a mom business owner. Thank you for helping put food on my table, a roof over my head, gas in my car and a car to drive here every day so I can do it all over again, and again, and again.
