The Floating Cork

The Floating Cork

When I’m alone in the shop, I often listen to inspirational podcasts or YouTube videos while I work. One of my favorite philosophies is Abraham Hicks, so much so that I subscribed to their email list. And one of this week’s daily messages mentioned doing what makes us happy, whatever floats our cork. I got the… View more

Pivotal Moments

Pivotal Moments

My first dog-as-an-adult, Finn, was an absolute hooligan. When I met Finn, I was instantly in love, but he happily wreaked havoc everywhere we went. Our first trip to Columbus from Chicago was akin to a National Lampoon movie. The second I opened the front door, Finn saw the cat and chased her up the… View more

Leaning In

Leaning In

Gavin’s always been sound sensitive, but after we were attacked by two dogs who broke out of their backyard, his senses heightened when on walks, as did mine. When we left Chicago, I was still deciding where we’d land, so we stayed with my brother in a quiet suburb outside Columbus, Ohio. Not only did… View more

Floundering Fortitude

Floundering Fortitude

I often joke that I must have been the testiest twit in a previous life because Gavin is the pokiest creature I’ve ever met. Even though he thrives on routine and loves snuggling and sleeping at my mom’s house on kitchen days, getting him out the door every week provides me monumental moments to practice patience. … View more

Making Space

Making Space

I finished all my kitchen duties and made a quick supply run. When I came back and mentioned that I would unload the car, not one but all three of my extraordinary employees separately asked, “do you need help?” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve prepped the kitchen for our production days, and I… View more

Bird’s-Eye-View

Bird’s-Eye-View

Last week, kerfuffles and complications seemed the theme. I could have handled the gushing water in my basement. Or, bounced back from barricading from and fervently sterilizing the kitchen after the maintenance guy with the raging cough my landlord sent to fix the leak left my apartment. I would have moved on after saving and subsequently cleaning… View more

My Grinchy Heart

My Grinchy Heart

This past Friday was my soulmate-dog-in-heaven’s birthday, my Finn, and I felt his vibrant presence all day. Gavin bounced and bopped through our walk, despite not seeing one person for him to greet. I soared through my morning order picking and packing routine with a rhythm I rarely find. And, I did a silent happy dance… View more

We Small Businesses

We Small Businesses

It’s been five months since we moved into our own kitchen.  And, every time I unlock the door, I’m unbelievably grateful that it’s as sparkly clean as we left it.  I don’t miss spending rent money to clean up other peoples’ messes nor the time wasted carrying everything we needed for the day from our… View more

More Love

More Love

It’s that time of year where we start anew and plan to be a different person or in another place in our life by years’ end. I know my new years’ resolutions have always been far too ambitious. So, this year, I have one goal, and that’s more love. If my focus is more love,… View more
