So now I have a coffee shop

We officially opened our doors on Tuesday the 15th. It was quite a scary time because it was hurry up and wait. What a new experience to have to sit and wait for customers! What a difference from the weekend. We had 70 people on Saturday for a childrens party and our un - official opening on Sunday with about 40 people coming. I never in my life thought I would be a waitress again! I have had such positive feed back, especially with regards to the venue. People have said it is "beautiful", "relaxing", "a great vibe", "a spoil!" (PS I will be updating my coffee shop blog with how it is to start a business and the news http://thegroveteacoffeeshop.blogspot.com/)

I have had my first booking on the 16th January for another childrens party. The kids have had a ball playing outside and our old "diggers" have caused competition between the boys.

Although I have been up early every morning and some times up till late, I haven't had a seizure - thank goodness. It is so much fun having some one cooking for me! Capturing all our products and meals took a while! This has really been a team effort with all of the family members! And we are still talking to each other!

I cannot believe where I am now - what a difference from having brain surgeries, chemo and radiation. It is still hard to comprehend. Yesterday (while waiting for customers) I looked around and wondered how it all happened. I have my family, business, children and my husband's office all with me.

What the last year has tought me is that our lives are short. I was given shocking news that made me think twice about what I wanted in my life. I made the decision to live it to the full. The reality is still hitting me! I am nothing but grateful for my blessings in life. I still need to paint again... I am just waiting for some space! The building continues!

Have a great break and I hope that you have time to think of next year and make your visions and dreams come to life. You never know what a year can hold!
