If you’ve ever picked up a shirt at her house in Salvo. If you’ve ever seen us at an event. If you’ve ever swung by one of our Salvo Sales. You have most likely met “My Mom”!! “My Mom” is how I refer to her and she’s also been referred to as “my partner” waaay before I started Highway 12 Shirts.
“My Mom” has a name and it’s Dorothy! She has been right along side me; under a beach umbrella, walking around listening to reasons why I need to start a business, driving in the car with ideas spewing between about the idea of Highway 12 Shirts years before it started. And late June 2020 I finally put that first order in… she still has never left my side.
Dorothy enjoys telling the story of “my daughters business”. She has the neatest teacher writing. She has a smile that’s warm and inviting. Dorothy takes her time to roll the shirts nicely. Dorothy is kind and listens. “My Mom” can disagree and give me reasons to think twice about a business decision. “My Mom” writes all of your thank you cards and sends them to my house. She takes her time to fold the shirt display just right. “My Mom” deals with me!!!! (That’s a big one.) Dorothy is the best!
As years have passed and I’ve learned about loss or seen the effects when people lose their parents: I don’t take “my Mom” for granted. Our time is precious. Moments shared. Memories made. Spending days together sweating in the sun selling shirts. And our countless texts that go back and forth daily. I’m blessed beyond words. I love you Mom!
Today I wish my Mom a very Happy Birthday! To celebrate her birthday everything is 12% off today. Highway12Shirts.com
