It’s has been a while since I have written a blog post! But when something major happened in my little business, I knew I had to write a blog about it! In case you didn’t hear the exciting news, we are opening a STOREFRONT BAKERY in Holly Springs! We are set to be open around the end of 2019 or early 2020. This is huge for us and we can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are!
I want this to inspire you to go after your dreams! Big or small, go after it! Work hard, be smart, and get an amazing tribe to surround you. For years, I mean for 15 years or more, I had a dream of opening a coffee shop/bakery. I have always loved baking and used to be addicted to coffee. I gave up the coffee for Spark. I’ve always wanted a place to bake and for people to hang out.
In the past four years, my dream became a little clearer; and this year my dream became a whole lot more clear. I kept feeling pulled to the idea of a place where we people can come and get a cupcake, a donut, or a maybe a bunch of them! I envisioned families coming in to pick out something sweet, or learning to bake and decorate. I remember going to this bakery with mom growing up, picking out cookies, and I’ve been missing those memories. I want families to have those memories too.
I have learned so much about myself and my business in the past year. I also have an amazing tribe that supports and believes in me. They’ve told me over and over not to give up, because God has a plan. I can’t even tell you how important that tribe is. One of the most important people in my tribe is my amazing husband. Let me tell you there where a lot of emotions along the journey of deciding to open a store. Jimmy wasn’t quite sure opening a store was what God had planned for us. But God showed up in so many big ways to prove this was the right path for us. We kept trying to so hard close the doors, but God kept opening new doors to show us our path!
So while we are still over a year out of the store actually opening, we still have a lot of work to do and things to learn. I have a picture of the perfect bakery in my head and I can’t wait for to start really being in the works. It’s going to be great. You know how I know? God has us on this journey and HE is amazing.
So I want you to tell me your dream and let me help you. Let me encourage you when you are ready to quick or throw in the towel.
Keep in touch with us and follow us on this incredible journey.
