Saturday, after months of preparation, we were all set up and ready for market at the Bethlehem First United Methodist Church Bazaar. We've been participating in this event for years. The difference this year is that this is the first time we were all in. You know, the kind of investment you feel when you walk across the stage to get your diploma, or stand up in front of family and friends and recite your vows. This is truly a reflection of our values and beliefs on display for all to see. It was thrilling...and it was nerve wracking.
I did not sit down for 7 hours as friends, new and old stopped by our booth. Many of them do not follow us on Facebook and had no clue how much we've done this year. It was fun to share all that we've been doing. It was rejuvenating to hear how many people were also on similar journeys. I met so many new people that I can't remember all of their names.
At the end of the day, I felt in my heart that we are on the right path, not just as a family, but also as a business. I knew we had sold a lot when several of our soap baskets were completely empty and some of our jams sold out. I never could've predicted just how much love and support we would receive that day.
Thank you to all our loyal customers that buy eggs each week, stop by the produce stand, and order your Christmas gifts from us. We could never make this work without all of your thoughts, prayers, and purchases.
