So, where to start...again.  It has been a whirl wind this year around the estate.  I needed to transform the back garage into a full blown shop.  I started my own screen printing company in February and needed a place to set up, and since then I had to add another wheel.  I am crossing my fingers that I can hire a part time printer next year.  It has been exciting to gradually grow the business.  I haven't had time to finish my site, but want to wrap that up this fall.

It has been two years since I started The 16oz Society.  God works in mysterious ways!  It has been so much fun, and successful.  For only being two years old we have been able to grow our cash flow, buy a vehicle and start to get money back.  The connects are fun and it has lead to some exciting business partnerships.  I have started to create apparel lines for other companies.

It seems like another life when I was struggling out in Idaho.  There were so many great people out there but I felt so alone and had to wrestle with larger life issues.  I think it made me a better person, but at the time who wants that?  Building character can be a real pain in the ass.  I have always felt God watching over me and put people into my life that I needed at that moment, but I don't think there has been a hard and fast 'plan' for my life.  Like I have said before, probably many times, life is a full contact sport and we just need to be ready at all times because there is always someone out there waiting to kick us in the nuts!  HA haha ha so funny.
