52 dates // 20

52 dates // a thousand threads
The date // A glass of prosecco and a very, very long nap.

After a marathon evening of baking and a fantastic first Sunday at the market, Mark and I celebrated with a bottle of prosecco given to us by the sweetest friends, then laid down for what was meant to be a quick catch-up of a nap…

We woke up the next morning.

Okay so marathon might even be an understatement, Saturday was a really long night… we’re still working on getting a system down for pumping out loads of pies in a little home kitchen, and we had a lot of last-minute prep to do for our first day, but the good news is that now I think we should be set. Our signs are painted, our labels are printed, and we learned a ton that should help us move much faster next week.

And hey, after oh, say 14 hours of sleep, I don’t remember the last time I felt so rested… what’s better than that?

Happy Monday! Thank you all so so much for your support on our announcement last week, we’re so excited to be able to share our journey and our dreams with all of you.

Now tell me — how was your weekend?

    I am very familiar with the “oh I’ll just close my eyes for a bit” coma. Glad your market debut was a success!
