Spooooooky Island Treats and Many Gracious Thank Yous!

It’s time to talk about this.  As you all know, we did not manage to snag the coveted “people’s choice” award in the Martha Stewart competition. It was some stiff competition and slim, slim odds but you guys fought so hard it was incredible!! Do you realize that we managed to sneak in the top 3 in NC? We also far outstripped many people in much, much bigger cities! That was all due to YOU!! The every day voters, the ferocious social media warriors tweeting and retweeting and Facebooking relentlessly!!  It was absolutely inspiring and heartwarming! It is amazing to know how committed our bakery family is to what we do for a living. So, thank you!!! We were so honored to get as far as we did and proud of the showing we all made!!!  In a side note, the ever fabulous Beth Rowland-one of our dear friends-captured one of the coveted ‘frequent voter baskets!” Congratulations Beth!!!!

In the meantime, nothing has slowed down! I was honored to be asked to do a bee-tasting contest in Onslow County last week. There were over 20 honey represented and we had to perform multiple tastings. It is absolutely fascinating the difference between all the different honey.  https://www.facebook.com/onslowcountybeekeepers

Sunday the 26th, we will be closing early (2 p.m.) because it is Logan and Tanis’s family birthday party (make sure to tell Mom “Happy Birthday!” when you are in the shop!) and prior to that we will be at Pomegranate Books feeding Bob Garner! There is a link to the time and place for Bob’s event.  https://www.facebook.com/events/572044786233612/
