Aspire Boutique Holiday Hours 2012

Aspire Boutique Holiday Hours 2012

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Aspire Boutique

I had a chance to meet up with Sara Carlson one of the co-owners at Aspire Boutique a few weeks ago.  There is so much to know about this very effervescent and super busy business woman, wife, mom, friend, painter, furniture up-doer, photographer, dancer (OK, not her but her kids are, that’s why you’ll see fabulous dance gear at their shop).  Anyway, you name it, she does it.  How does she do it all?  It’s all about balance.  It’s evident that Sara loves what she does.  Like they say, if you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.

Speaking of day, the store has undergone some transformation for the holidays!  Just look at the display window above.  It’s really beginning to look a lot like Christmas on Main Street Wauconda, don’t you agree?  When I walked in the store, the smell of the wonderful fragrant candles took me to my imaginary cabin home up in the mountains somewhere.  OK, I digress.  But go check it out when you get a chance, and ask Sara or Amy about these candles.

I will tell you more about Sara and Amy of Aspire Boutique on my many stories I will share with you someday.  But for now, I just want to let the people of Wauconda and nearby communities know about their store’s new holiday hours.  Make a note of this and start making your holiday shopping list.  And while you’re there, make sure to treat yourself to something girly.  They will have something for you there no doubt.  😉
