Sure we ate bad frozen pizza last night for dinner.
Sure we got four hours of sleep.
Sure the handle to our toilet was broken up until this afternoon.
Sure our sign and sandwich board never arrived.
Sure we started cooking this morning in the cafe kitchen only to realize we didn't have a single mixing spoon in sight.
Sure we opened the doors without knowing how to void a transaction on the cash register properly.
Sure I had a minor panic attack when I first noticed the unfamiliar car park outside and an even more unfamiliar face start walking towards the front door to the cafe.
But the point is that today we opened the front door and we didn't look back.
And here's what it tasted like:
Fresh glazed cinnamon rolls and sweet blueberry scones from Fleur de Lis bakery.
Fried puffed dough smothered in Oreo cookies from Voodoo Doughnuts.
Ooey-gooey grilled cheese sandwiches cut in to four perfect triangles for two impossibly adorable little girls having a lunch-date out with their impossibly cool dad.
Thick Courier Coffee milkshakes served in mason jars filled to the brim.
Fried egg sandwiches with gorgonzola, applewood smoked bacon, and homemade apple butter served all day.
Yoo-Hoo and Bubble Up Soda in glass bottles.
Perfectly iced coffee with room for cream on a perfectly sunny day.
Thank you to all who came out today to support us. Thank you to all of the new neighbors and friends we met. We are looking forward to meeting the rest of you. We had fun today and we can't wait to do it again tomorrow. Cheers!
