Our FIRST sleepover! We want to shout it from the roof tops! This little dream of ours is now a real, PAYING gig! Who knew?! From the moment we heard, "Heck, yeah! I'd love to host a sleepover" we were geeking out, but when the time came to actually set up our teepees and all the cute sleepover decor in someone else's home--other than in Kira's basement, we could barely breath. Yes, we were working so hard to make it look just absolutely perfect, that might be why we were out of breath; however, when we finished and looked at our FIRST sleepover setup it literally took our breath away. It was so perfect! All the months of hard work, late night planning sessions, & lots of prayers leading up to this moment were all worth it! We DID it!
Yeah, all of that was great, more than great actually it was awesome and we can't wait to do it again, and again. However, the most perfect part of the entire set up was hanging around afterwards, just a few short moments to see the children's reactions. IT WAS EVERYTHING! It literally felt like Kira and I were the Queens of Candy City. Where candy falls from the sky, bushes & trees are made of cotton candy, and everything you touch turns to candy--oh, and adults never say, "Don't you think you've had too much candy for one day?!" Seriously though, their faces lit up and their excitement was off the charts! While Kira and I have both had the privilege of hosting a teepee sleepover for our own girls, and both know how thankful and happy they were when they experienced it, it felt so good to do it for someone else's little girls. To create that memory for them was definitely something super special. WOW, that was a different kind of happiness.
I need to finish up this post by thanking our very first host--You know who you are, Girl! MOM OF THE YEAR! Not only for making memories for your little girl and all her cute friends, but for believing in us enough to open your home for this little business. There should be more people like you in this world. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough. I see some discounted sleepovers in your children's future!
