Trilogies Happen

A very heartfelt apology for being absent in my writing for so long. We really have so much to catch you up on in our lives. Mom passed away Feb 16, 2012. Our hearts broke and we let ourselves heal. The whole town had to heal. Everyone loved sitting with Mamma in the store and getting life advise from a great lady.There is not a day that passes without a "mom-ism" quoted from one of us sisters, and staff and customer alike as well. Her legacy lives on all around us at the store.
Then tragically our second Mom passed in April 2013. Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau left quite a trail.... pink,green,orange and turquoise all mashed together into floral and animal printed frocks and fabrics. There are no words to say thank you except the actual simple two words themselves. Thank You Lil. The trilogy was completed when our father passed in September, the 16th as well. He was our rock and our sounding board. We still ask him "what to do" and wait for him to answer us in our dreams. And he does every time.
Forward to present day, we still have our beloved and semi-famous stores: Palm Beach,Naples,Delray Beach,Jupiter,City Place and Hobe Sound Florida. We added a little country in our lives and opened a store in Highlands North Carolina. Skeptical at first, I took my family north-west and to our surprise, We fell in love. Our third summer,this year proved a new store in a nearby town,Cashiers. It is opening by Aug 10,2014. Will there be a third in North Carolina? Don't things happen in threes. Trilogies do happen.
