In this series we are introducing you to our wonderful retailers, the amazing women who are helping us to make the Spread the Love benefit a reality. Please welcome Julie from Simple Cloth in Olympia, Washington!
Tell us about a typical day in the life of Julie.
My typical day: waking up super-early to a hungry little nurser, trying to sleep a bit longer, coffee, breakfast, email, bathing dirty little bodies, dressing clean little bodies, sneaking in a shower for myself, finding little shoes and pairing them with wiggly little feet, finding more shoes and pairing them with bigger little feet, putting first little shoes on little feet AGAIN, rushing out the door to preschool and to work at my store, meeting babies and families at Simple Cloth, talking about babies and diapers and carriers, answering phones, answering emails, packing orders, closing shop, rushing to the loading dock at the post office with packages of “fluffy mail,” driving home, slipping into PJ’s immediately, dinner with family, dancing and playing with family, rounding up little boys for bedtime routine, stories, little boy bedtime, trying to stay awake for television and relaxation with husband, stumbling to bed earlier than I’d like to admit.
If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
If I could go on vacation anywhere in the world…hmmm…with just my husband I’d choose the French Riviera. It seems like the perfect combination of beaches, outdoor cafes, and romance. With my family, I’d choose The Outer Banks of North Carolina. We actually go there each summer and it’s a wonderful, scenic beach vacation without a lot of commercialism. We just enjoy each other’s company, play on the beach, and relax at the beach house. Dreamy!
If you won the $100 giftcard to your own store, Simple Cloth, what would you get and why?
If I won the $100 certificate for Simple Cloth, I’d buy a bunch of the Clothmopolitan bamboo velour wipes (ultra-luxurious!) and more FuzziBunz diapers (love ’em!)
