Midwest Dreams Boutique- Where Fashion and Dreams meet

    Hi Y'all and welcome! My name is Donna and I am the owner (I can't believe I can say that) of Midwest Dreams Boutique Co., and like the name implies this is a dream come true for me. I want to take a moment to share with you how we came to be, what we are, and what we hope to do. In order for me to do that, I have to dig deep and get a little personal. I’ll try to keep it short.

    Above all things, I am a mother. I have four amazing, inspiring kids, and I am so fortunate to call them mine. They are my why. I have always dreamed about being an entrepreneur, but never felt like I could. I just never felt like I was good enough, smart enough, or just "enough" in general. I struggled with self confidence my whole life, and made excuses as to why I couldn’t do things I wanted. In reality, the only reason I couldn’t …was me. My kiddos though, gave me the motivation I needed to take the first step in this amazing journey. I tell them constantly "You can do anything you want as long as you don't give up,"  and, there I was telling myself the exact opposite. Fear ruled my life to a certain extent. I was a very "you can do it"  motivational kind of person for those around me. I love seeing the spark in someone’s eyes when they achieve something they didn't think they could. It's the best feeling in the world! It’s just.... I didn’t do that for myself. Like I wasn’t worthy ,or didn’t deserve success. The guilt I felt when good things did happen, was unreal. I NEVER want anyone else to feel that way. 

  It was only a matter of time before I was going to self destruct, and boy did I destruct. I went off like Fukoshima, after the tsunami. It was hands down the worst time of my life, but with that I grew. I shed my old skin as well as 60 pounds.  I started therapy and learned so much about myself. I began to realize that in order for me to be able to serve I have to serve myself too, and that taking care of myself was not selfish. After all, you can't pour from an empty glass.  So with that mindset, Midwest Dreams Boutique began to form.

   I want to help others not just with the cutest, trendiest, most fashionable clothing ever! (Sorry guys, I can be dramatic!) It’s really not about the clothing, or that purse, or those earrings. It's about how they make you feel, and I want to share that feeling. I want you to feel it your bones! I want you to shine so bright it ignites a flame around you, and spreads to others. 

When you learn how to dress for your body type and actually feel good in your skin, things start to change. Your world gets a little brighter, and the next thing you know other things start to move forward. You start to actually "think" differently. You start to believe in yourself! This is what I want Midwest Dreams Boutique Co. to be about! I want you all to know how wonderful, unique, and beautiful you are. It starts with fashion and ends with self discovery.

So until next time all you beautiful dreamers, keep your head held high, and know your worth!

With Love,

Donna
