Welcome to Darling Charlotte Boutique! I am Erin Blankenship and I am a small business owner located in Athens, Tennessee! A little about me, I am a stay-at-home mom and homeschool teacher to my two littles, Will and Kennedy. I love all things fashion and offering quality items to you at affordable prices! I started the boutique in 2017 and finally made the plunge to fulltime stay-at-home mommy in January 2020. I had no idea that Covid was coming or what that would mean to a small business owner. It has been a year of learning how to overcome many obstacles but also a year to grow closer in my walk with Christ. There is something so powerful and comforting to be able to completely trust in God's plan, whatever that may be.
Why the name Darling Charlotte? This is probably my most asked question, given I often share moments of our family's life on social media, especially special moments with Will and Kennedy. I gave birth to two beautiful identical twin girls, Kennedy and Charlotte. Charlotte was born sleeping into the arms of Jesus. As a mother, I grieve the loss of having her here with us. As a Christian, I am at peace knowing that she is living the most extraordinary life with Jesus and I have the promise to be reunited in Heaven when my time here is complete. Losing Charlotte was, without a doubt, the hardest thing I have ever had to endure. But God...I know God can bring good even out of the darkest places. I now have more excitement about my home in Heaven. I am able to empathize with other loss parents and am able to mourn with them. I have seen how quickly your life can change and how important it is to embrace those you love and enjoy every gift of each day.
Thank you for shopping small and supporting my small business! There are a million places you could shop, but you are here and I want you to know much that means to me. If you know others that would like to receive a daily dose of Jesus, funny life moments, and really cute clothing and accessories, please send them my way.
I pray that you will be blessed and encouraged by my posts. Feel free to share! God bless you!
