Hi readers! My name is Victoria and I'm a mom, wife, full-time sales rep in the corporate world, and the proud owner of Summer Child. If you haven't already, you can read about why I started Summer Child over at the About Us page.
Why a blog?
I'm starting this blog as a way to share what I hope are fun ideas and content about my family life, running and growing a small business, and most importantly as a way to connect with YOU! Summer Child customers are our lifeline and as a small business we can only thrive with your support.
Five fun facts about me
Fact #1 - England is my favorite place
I was born in England and now live in Arizona. England's country meadows and city cobblestones are still some of my fondest memories from growing up and visits in my teenage years. One of my life goals is to own a cottage in the Cotswolds.
Fact #2 - I love to travel
I've visited 14 countries so far, but I feel like I've only scratched the surface. Traveling is a way for my family and I to experience new people, cultures, and food! Can't wait to visit more post-COVID, when life returns to normal.
Fact #3 - I'm a bit superstitious
When I was 16, I was told by a gypsy at a fair that I'd have three daughters. I'm not one to believe in psychics, but lo and behold, here I am 20 years and three girls later!
Fact #4 - I've got decorating on the mind
My favorite hobby right now is looking at interior design blogs and site to come up with ideas for our home remodel we'll be embarking on in the very near future.
Some of my favorites are
Fact #5 - Reading is one of my go-to "me time" activities
My favorite book is The Alchemist. It inspired me to follow my dreams and not be paralyzed by the idea of failure. At less than 200 pages, it's very consumable even for busy moms. If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it!
That's all I've got for now! If there are other topics you'd like to hear about, feel free to leave a comment below and I'll do my best to incorporate it. Thank you for your continued support and Happy Holidays!
