I found out about Shauna & her fabulous business, Poor Pitiful Pearl, through our mutual friend, Kara. Kara knew that Shauna was located here in my neck of the woods so she messaged me to ask if I knew about PPP and how fabulous it was. I hadn’t heard about it at that point so I checked it out online & when I saw how completely adorable Shauna’s repurposed clothing was, I was simply SMITTEN! I bought a few items from her online shop then decided to go meet her in person at the New Braunfels Farmers Market one Saturday morning and of course she was just as precious in person as I imagined she would be!! Eventually Shauna opened up a brick & mortar store in New Braunfels so I went to treat myself to something new for my birthday one day and as Shauna was walking me out, I felt led to ask her if she needed help with anything. She looked at me in confusion and asked, “What do you mean?”. I wasn’t exactly sure what I meant since the words just sort of flew out of my mouth before I could really think about them so I just told her that I was willing to help her out with anything she might need whether it be personal or professional. She got tears in her eyes and told me that she was needing someone to fill in at the store one day a week so that Lauren could attend her college classes & Shauna could continue to homeschool her girls and spend time with them at home and I knew immediately that I was her girl! I worked at PPP for about 6 months until Shauna decided to go back to selling her products exclusively at the Farmers Market & online and in that time got to know Shauna, Lauren, the PPP models and her family & also established quite the PPP wardrobe which makes this girl extremely happy! In the time I worked with her, I learned that there wasn’t much more that Shauna wanted other than to have another child so when I found out she was pregnant, tears welled up in eyes and I thanked Him for blessing this friend who was SO deserving of this baby boy. I was more than thrilled to be able to take pictures of her lovely baby shower and meet her sweet friend, Selena, who worked so hard to pull all of the magic together on that lovely Texas afternoon…….
