What about your business are you most proud of?
After 17yrs, I've seen a few weddings! But recently we had a bride who told us she used to walk past our window on her way to school and loved staring at the beautiful gowns. Well now shes all grown up and gets to wear one of our gorgeous gowns for herself! It does make me feel old though!
