Transition & Emmy’s Gifting Suite

It’s been a few weeks since my last post and things are pretty status quo at Yoga-urt. Although, I have to say, it feels like such a strange time right now. Fall is here and summer is fading away. We are starting to slow down, but nothing too bad. It is still warm outside and the nights are getting darker earlier. 

I guess we are in transition. Transition from our record summer months and all the excitement that came with that to an inevitable slowing down period.  

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about winter, but I also know we’ll do whatever is needed to be okay. The good news is that we are in such better shape right now than we were this time last year when all of my money went into construction.

There are so many things that I want to do with Yoga-urt, to grow it, but financially I just can’t do anything right now. This is where patience comes into play. I’ve never been good at being patient, but over and over again on this journey, I’ve had to be patient. I guess this is a lesson the universe thinks I need so why fight it. I continue to have faith that as long as I do the work, anything is possible. So that is exactly what I will do.

There was one big thing that happened since my last post. We had a booth at the Emmys Gifting Suite last weekend. It was our first time doing something like that. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun. My sister and niece worked the booth with me. Everyone loved the yoga-urt and it was great to introduce new people to it.

Vegan Street Fair Nights

What a fun event. Great people. Great space. Great food. Great music. Loved seeing friends. I think most people who came had a really good time.

This is the first festival where everything went smoothly for us and there weren’t any last minute curveballs. Phew!!!

As for business, we were slow the first night as were all of the dessert places, but the second night was definitely better. 

As much fun as it was, I feel relief that it is over. There is so much planning and prep that goes into these festivals and it takes a lot out of me. Doesn’t help that I had a person call in sick on Friday and another one call in sick on Sunday, the day after. Sometimes it feels like I can never catch a break. But I had Monday off of my day job and Yoga-urt so I happily slept and stayed in bed most of the day. I need so much more of that.

I honestly don’t know how many more of these festivals I have in me. We won’t be doing anymore this year, although we do have 2 smaller events we are doing, with one on Sept. 17th. More on that later.

On another note, the nights are starting to get darker and the evenings colder. We had such a great July/August and I’m a little sad that we will inevitably start to slow down. I hope our customers continue to come to Yoga-urt and support us through the colder months. Namaste!
