Meet Apryl

Apryl is behind the Forever My Baby Boutique!

Mexican food is her favorite! Pink is the favorite color! Crafting is her hobby! :)

Apryl was in the Army for 5 years and her last year in she became pregnant with her son! She got out when her contract was up due the risk of getting deployed. She did not want to leave her son behind. Her husband served as well and they both moved to Texas from New York when his contract was up as well. Her son was  about 1 year old before she found out she was pregnant again with her daughter. She never really knew about the whole boutique thing for kids, until after she found out she was going to having a girl. Her sister-in-law was also having a girl, so they decided to paint wall letters for both of their girls. She also made some for her son. After doing research online she found out that everything was very interesting. {sometimes google is horrible, getting us hooked lol} Apryl says she is soo picky, and that she's a perfectionist at everything she does, she decided to make her own things. She has had so many friends and family tell her how great her stuff is and that she should sell it {the famous line}. It never crossed her mind before, and she figured why not. If people place orders, then she can get to do what she enjoys doing all the time. She has always been an artsy, crafty kind of person and she's really not into making a lot of money. She does it for the joy of painting and crafting. It's her hobby, and even if things do not work out with her business, she will continue to do what she loves for her friends and family! {I love that! You have PASSION} :) Apryl is coming up with new things to do, paint or sew. Apryl believes it will be something she'll be doing for the rest of her life, when her kids are grown with kids of their own, and start all over again! :)

Her favorite verse: "Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. Love never gives up. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

Thank you for sharing your story Apryl! :) I can tell the passion you have, and it will continue to grow during this journey of the "boutique world" :) Stop on over and let her know you saw her on MTB! :) Have a great day!
