Psychic Anyone? May 10, 2007

Filed under: Urban Apothecary — Cheri @ 10:14 am

Yahoo! My husband gave me my Mother’s Day present early. After I begged and pleeded for quite some time, I finally got what I was after. A reading with Char, internationally renowned spiritual-intuitive. Yes, the one that reads the likes of Larry King and Regis Philbin. I know, I know, it sounds crazy, but after my friend Amy had her reading, I wanted to see what she had to say about me. Let’s just say, I’m amazed. She made by day and I feel as if a huge, heavy weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I’m so grateful for this special gift. Thank you, DH!

Wow, time flies when you are havin’ fun!  One more New Years Resolution down the drain (I did promise to update the Urban blog on a daily basis), shame on me!  In any event, I promise more frequent posts in the near future.  Thanks to all of our loyal fans who send emails every so often or check-in with orders.  I appreciate your input and the loads of questions I receive are always fun to answer.  We’ve been working on so many things behind-the-scenes here at Urban Apothecary, that it seems like there are never enough hours in the day.  Can anyone else relate?
