Celebrate with Us This Week!

Tomorrow marks an important milestone for us – our second birthday! We can’t have a big party this year, but we’re celebrating just the same. We’re cutting the cake tomorrow afternoon, and you’re welcome to join us. But we’ll individually wrap and refrigerate slices to pick up when you like, all week long. We’ll also have gift bags with purchase all week long, our way of saying THANK YOU for taking this past year’s crazy journey with us…
