Remember all those times I wrote about the rain? Or how about when I wrote about the cold AND the rain for a solid year? How about we do a complete 180 and I write about the fact that we have had no rain for a solid week and it has been hot as *&#%. Seriously??? Mind you, last Tuesday morning it was 47 and we contemplated having to bring the tropicals inside "just in case". I have no words.
I do have words for this guy, Josh. I wrote about him celebrating his 40th birthday and how thankful we are for him. But now I write about him through the eyes of children who confirmed my suspicion.
Twin boys, around 4 years old, were shopping with their mom in the Garden Center. Josh happens upon them at the check-out counter and one little guy looks up wide-eyed and asks, "Are you a gnome?"
Josh ponders for a minute and replies, "Maybe."
The little boys stare, their wheels turning, and one proceeds to ask, "Do you live here?"
Josh smiles and says, "Did you see the little fairy house in the wheel barrow?"
They both nod emphatically.
Josh smiles and says, "Don't tell anyone. It will be our little secret."
I can't even handle the cuteness of this. Not only did Josh totally roll with it, he let these two little boys in on a secret. A SECRET! Do you know these little boys are NEVER
going to forget this? They are going to grow up forever remembering THAT garden center with the gorgeous flowers, koi fish, alpaca, goats, chickens and a living, breathing gnome who lives in a fairy garden! Best. Place. Ever. Okay, so they probably won't grow up remembering the gorgeous flowers, BUT they will remember this cool place with a fairy garden and a gnome who shared a secret.
Hands down. We work with the coolest people EVER. Not only are they brilliant, they are creative. And they want to help you bring green home WHILE entertaining your kids. All we need now is ice cream.
Scott? Can I start an ice cream division?
People...I am gonna need some support with this!
