On Thursday, the bakery had its first birthday.
The past year has felt like about ten years if the truth be told and has been harder than we could ever have imagined in our worst nightmares, so I am grateful that not only have we survived, but that we are thriving. The conventional wisdom of business start-ups is that it takes three years before you begin to fly - so I say hallelujah to that and hopefully the next two years will be slightly less eventful than this past one and just as productive!
Although Tyler and I constantly berate ourselves that we havn't implemented half the things we wanted too yet, we have come a long way from the few loaves of bread we started out with and not much else.
We have lots and lots of ideas and plans that we want to run with and now that we have begun wholesaling we can soon start looking at expanding in to bigger premises and our range.
Despite the sheer blood, sweat and tears that it has taken to get going - I wouldn't change it for anything in the world. We're the masters of our own destiny with a wonderfully well-supported business that the local community have absolutely taken into their homes and hearts. We could not ask for much more than that.
