So it aired. Our little two-minute segment aired on King 5. Evening Magazine did a spectacular job in editing and I am really super pleased with how our segment came out! I think they did an awesome job and took everything we said and put together a really nice piece.
I do have to laugh because the only part that aired of me saying anything was the part about the Blue Angels Jet. Which was 100% true. When we decided to open a salon I started looking around for chairs and when I saw the Jet I just knew that we had to have it and we had to choose everything else around it. That would be the one chair that would be my prized possession in the shop. My brother, who is very important to me, is in the Army. He is the exact opposite of me, a career army pilot that has his act together all the time. He was doing air shows at the time as the pilot for the Golden Knights, the United States Army parachute team. They would travel with the Blue Angels and we were lucky enough to see these shows from amazing spots, like the runway. Once in a lifetime opportunities that made me see our military in a whole new way. So the chair, it is my special chair. It has been through its share of combat itself, broken windshields, broken seat belts… seats, wings. We keep patching it back together because you can’t replace any of the parts anymore.
As for what might have been left out. I think they covered it all. They took what I said and interpreted it much better than I could have said myself. It was a really hard interview to do because to me it feels like I am going to my second house (it even looks like a house) and it feels like I have friends stopping by all day. I don’t get as much work done there that I wish I could, mostly because I am having so much fun visiting with the people I know. So to me, although I can get stressed out sometimes (I’m human), It feels like I just get to see my friends all day and make new ones too. It isn’t like “work”, but then again you know what they say… if you love what you do it doesn’t feel like work. So that makes sense. I’m glad we won, especially for the girls because they work hard and deserve it.
For me when I sat quietly and thought about the whole thing I realized that we are a business. A legitimate business that people really like. That is huge. But I still can’t believe it.
