Its amazing how one day off can make me so relaxed that I somehow manage to 'forget' some of the more difficult moments of cafe life...until I saw this picture and I was reminded of just how dependent Ali and I are when it comes to making this whole thing work. These are peaches Tim and Lindsey picked this past summer. Tim and Lindsey, just like everyone else who works with us at the cafe, are essential to our success. Jo, who was nice enough to label this jar for us, is yet another intricate piece of our puzzle. Which brings me to this past weekend, when we received help from two new sources.
Early last week we realized that Moo, Ali and myself were the only scheduled hands on deck for Sunday...but low and behold came my sister Jamie, and Alex, of The Acorn fame. Both were fantastic in their inaugural appearance at the cafe, easily slipping into a weekend rush as though they were seasoned veterans. Thanks guys, you saved our asses this Sunday. And thanks as well to Jeff for allowing us to solicit one of his employees to help bring aid to our crisis.
