Darling Husband and I co-own a software company. It’s his dream but not mine. I don’t do much for the company currently but hopefully in the next few months I’ll be able to do it full time and control all of the office necessities. 

I’d love to own an event planning company. Whether that’ll ever happen, who knows, but it is a dream of mine. 

ETA: I’d also love to open a no-kill animal shelter but that’s more of a philanthropic venture (i.e. money-pit) than a business. It’s heartbreaking that there are so many animals out there on death row just because they don’t have a family to love them.

Mr. Mink and I joke that we’re going to open up a pet hotel and a rescue if we get a windfall.

I think it’d be wonderful to have truly fashionable bridal boutique in Charlottesville.  We only have one bridal shop and it carries very classic styles that would appeal to many, but we don’t have anything that would cater to a more fashion foward clientel, which we definitely have in this town. 

Most people seem to travel to Richmond or DC for wedding gowns.  I even saw a girl on Say Yes to the Dress who was in law school here (who wound up getting married at my venue!).

Fiance would love to open a grill/diner. I’d support it but it’s not my fantasy. I’d love to own an EBay store or a pawn shop. I love variety and get bored easily so the ever changing inventory would keep me on my toes. What a fun thread. I had to actually think about what I’d like!

I think I would love to open a floristry business – but this is from a girl who has no flower arranging skills or idea how a florists work! I just love the creative creations people can do with flowers!

A gallery and studio of course.  I am on my way.  They call my tenacious C.  I think it would be fun to have a coffee shop too, with friends as regulars.

I’ve love to open an event planning business or my own bridal shop geared toward plus size brides.

I feel like a clean, modern bridal shop that carries large samples in really fashionable dresses is really an untapped market right now. Most shops have teeny samples and the plus size ones they do have are all the same old stuff.

OR, a bakery. I was considering going to pastry school before we moved overseas. I might still do it when we move back.

I would love to own a housewares/home decor store.  I love finding unique items to decorate and use in my house and would love to have a store filled with all kinds of pretty, unique, practical items.

Not sure it’s a business per se, but I really want to run an animal rescue. If we ever end up in a financial situation where I don’t have to work, I’m going to do it. Even if I don’t ever run a rescue, I will foster cats or dogs when we get our own place.

I’d love to own a makeup studio/store where I could really focus on showing people how to apply it and doll them up for special occasions. And, of course, I could help them play with the newest colors :).

Ha, lots of things. I think it would be fun to be an event planner, or a florist, or a baker. I have the skills for two of them but pretty baking is beyond me. I’m a taste good kind of baker.

 FI and I may eventually actual do photography on the side, he is pretty incredible and I am trying to learn all the technical skills to assist him.

Myhusband and I would like to own our own record store. We would love to sell vintage, new, all kinds of records, in a trendy location.  Maybe we will save up for it and do it when we are much older. We haven’t started yet though.
