This is the true story . . . of how Maré got its start

Hello lovelies!  I still can't believe this website is finally up and running.  And that I have blog!  I had a blog before, a long time ago.  That blog chronicled my adventures in on-line dating.  Don't ask.  Really.  Don't.  Moving on . . . 

So, for Maré's first official blog post, I wanted to share how I even got into this whole business of lotion.  It's simple: my office was subjected to furloughs during the summer of 2013.  So, every other Friday I had an unpaid vacation day.  At first, I had ZERO complaints.  It was fun to hang out with friends and have leisurely lunches (with booze!)  But then the novelty wore off and it just turned into down time.  I don't do down time.  

One Furlough Friday, I  pulled out the block of beeswax I had brought home from Ethiopia and started making random stuff. Some of it was great. Some of it was . . . meh.  When I made too much, I gave it away.  And then I started selling it.  And now here we are.  

So there you have it: the true story of what happens when a lawyer has to much time on her hands and starts makin' stuff!  [THE END]
