Well, it’s been a year! It started out in September 2019 with so much chocolate and support, and continued through the fall as I took a chocolatier course. I learned so much about this edible form of art. AND THEN CAME CHRISTMAS. Orders, orders, and orders upon orders. What a whirlwind 2019 ended with. It was a joy, a crazy, busy joy! I felt all the love and I am so appreciative for everyone’s support.
Then 2020 arrived. Well, we all know what happened, but I just want to say that I experienced the “support local” vibes and filled orders through to the summer! I know you all just needed that comfort food, and I was happy to oblige!
Reflecting back on this year it’s been a real learning experience, from a business perspective to a humbling, human perspective. There are businesses that are thriving through this time, and there are businesses that have failed during this time - there are people, families and livelihoods behind these businesses and my heart to goes out to them.
And as this world pandemic continues on, I hope that no others have to close their doors. So the next time you need to run out for some groceries or do a little shopping, seek out a local business and see what they have to offer! You could discover some great products and services while helping to build a strong and successful community around you.
Happy birthday to us! I hope you continue to order my beautiful chocolates and confections and that it keeps me busy into 2021, and beyond!
