Eggin’ Me On!

As you may have noticed we have gone to a 6 day week.  In the beginning-I had visions of Sugar at 3 of the local Farmer’s Markets and cranking it out 7 days a week.  Weeeeeelllllll, after 8 months of being open now I have realized that this is not a feasible plan when I amContinue reading “Eggin’ Me On!”

Iced Coffee-You chill me to the bone.

Sitting in my little car, freezing Iced Latte soaking into my white linen shirt, cascading freely across my laptop and pooling in my Crocs I burst into howling tears-pounding futilely on my steering wheel I start the car, jam my sunglasses onto my face and promptly hurl them into the passenger seat as they areContinue reading “Iced Coffee-You chill me to the bone.”

Azalea Festival…we’re out.

Whilst BLOOMING azaleas are undeniably lovely in their 3 days of glory, I am not a fan. The lackluster green leaves, spindly branches and root systems from beyond-not my thing.  I think we should switch to a Strawberry Festival! Think of the fun foods that would spawn!  Anyway, my point is, WE ARE CLOSED SATURDAYContinue reading “Azalea Festival…we’re out.”
