Life Re-Evaluation Contest - enter to WIN!!

Recently, I had a second round of major foot surgery on both feet that involved basically living out of my recliner for two weeks, then slowly easing back into my life.

During that time, I did a lot of soul-searching and talking with my husband. I've been taking Master's degree classes, and have learned a lot about myself and my future goals. I have realized that while there are many aspects of the tshirt business that I love, it does not adequately display my strengths or fit my life goals.

Therefore, I have decided to sell my business equipment and move into a different line of work. It hasn't been an easy decision, but one that I am moving into confidently, knowing that it is the right one to make! :)
