It's our anniversary!
Recently I just had to renew my trade name for the bakery. I initially registered it in 2013...TEN years ago! That is when I decided I was going to get legit and start my own business. Two years into that process, my house had disappeared under a mountain of boxes, pans, ingredients, and well just about everything that is in the bakery now. With business booming, I needed a place to bake.
I literally stopped by where the bakery is now which at the time was "Bec's Dairy Isle" to ask her if she knew who I could reach out to about the empty building across the street. She said "Do you want to buy this place?" and the rest is history. I jumped head first into figuring out the process of buying such property all the while continuing to operate the business doing farmer's markets and many orders as well as being a wife and momma to two little people, 4 and 6 years old at the time. It was a challenge to say the least. I just kept figuring out what the next step was or what needed done next and figured out how to get it done.
That is pretty much how I've continued to operate these past 8 years. We can all make plans and have such clear visions, but we don't know what we don't know! We don't know how the world will shift, we don't know how we as individuals will continue to grow and change and we don't know frankly what tomorrow holds sometimes. And for those of you who have continued on this journey with me these past years, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for supporting all of the changes I have made (there have been so many). Thank you for loving my product. Thank you for sharing my product with those you love. Thank you for giving me the chance to do what I love and thank you for just trusting that I am doing what is best for everyone. Thank you for having grace as I navigate life and business ownership through all it's peaks and valleys.
Owning a business is tough. There's just no other way to put it. I'm proud to continue rocking it as best I can and anxious to see where the journey continues to lead me. I really can't believe that our doors have been open for 8 years...where has the time gone?
I am forever grateful, see you soon!
