Holey-moley-canolli-in-a-bowly-with-a-barrel-of-monkeys-on-the-side.... THIS PAST SATURDAY WAS OFF THE CHAIN, PEOPLE!!!!! In case you missed the party on Saturday, or you loved it so much that you wanted a little recap, let me give you the skinny: Choquettes from St. Honore bakery, cookies from Dragonfly Coffee House, mimosas, wine (from Food Front Co-op) and beer, raffles, gifties including thank you cards, Night Watch rings and Leather bangles, Gingham being adorable, me and Kelly looking like chickens with our heads cut off running around ringing up customers, Betsy and Will working the room and being amazing, and what else?......

And for those of you who came, thank you thank you thank you thank you thank youuuuuu!!! I feel so lucky that I got to be a part of this milestone with the betsy & iya family, words can't express. The whole day felt like Black Friday with all the running around, house full of customers, and lines at the cash register. But there was so much joy and love that surrounded the room with friends and fans coming to support us I found smiles on everyone's faces... and the alcohol and treats didn't hurt either. ;) Heart warming and quite satisfying if I do say so myself. Also, I know there are some of you who are wondering about our raffle. Well, the winner is coming soon, so stay tuned. We can't wait to find out either! 'Til next time, sweet ones. Love forever!
