Easter 2017

Easter is just around the corner and we have received many inquiries over the past month for this holiday weekend. As a bakery small business, any food related holiday are huge for us. That is why it was hard for me to make the decision to close the store this Easter holiday.
Working for the past 10+ years in bakeries, I can't remember the last time I had a Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any other holiday off of work. I knew it was part of the job, and I was okay with that. I would head over to see my after 12 or 14 days for a holiday meal, and although I would be exhausted it would still be a great night.
In November my family suffered a huge loss, my brother. It was a very hard Christmas for all of us that followed just 4 weeks later. We are all doing much better now than we were then. But I wanted to be able to take the time this Easter long weekend to spend as much of it as possible with all of my family. We will be closed April 14- 17th.

Thanks so much to you all for understanding. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.
