--Today we celebrate the New Moon in Aries!
Aries’ masculine side will encourage us to set goals, make wishes, and aim for targets we would like to achieve. However, the feminine side will encourage us to align with the universe, join with the flow, and even trust that everything that is supposed to come our way easily will.

I am embracing the energy of the new moon in aries today to finally get around to writing my Spring
Equinox (ahem) newsletter! Better late than never right?!? Since I last wrote, I quietly celebrated my first year as owner of Branching Out....wow this year has flown by! As I look back on this past year I am proud of what I have created and look forward to new growth. I took something that was already great and am growing it into a business that appeals to a wider audience. So far it has been well received...I have gained new customers and am happy to say that lots of Branching Out's founding customers still frequent the store today. This past year hasn't been easy, as any small business owner can attest to, but it has been more rewarding than any job I have ever had. The work is challenging and the monetary compensation is minimal (for now!) but what I have gained in knowledge, relationships, gratitude and pride is immeasurable! I want to thank each and every one of you for coming into my life this past year and helping to make this year so wonderful.
As I'm sure some of you noticed, we reduced our hours a bit for the winter but now that people seem to be coming out of hibernation, we will slowly start to expand again. For now we will continue to offer the hours we currently do but add our Tuesdays back in. As summer is upon us, look for extended weekend hours.
Starting today, our hours will be as follows:
Monday by appointment
Tuesday 10 to 5
Wednesday 10 to 7
Thursday 10 to 5
Friday 10 to 5
Saturday 10 to 5
Sunday by appointment
Please do not hesitate to reach out via phone, text, email or facebook during our “by appointment” days. I live nearby and it's no trouble to pop in...and if I'm not available, I'll say so. :-)
