Hi friends! Sorry we have been MIA recently. It’s been CRAZY around here. I got a new job. It’s the bomb (Hi, guys!). And then I thought, I’ll just work full time and take classes sometimes too, no biggie.
Chris is still teaching. Which is probably ten times more work than working full time and studying on the side – just don’t tell him I said that.
But to add insult to injury, I dragged Chris and the rest of my family into starting the best business ever. Wine ice cream. That’s right, WINE ICE CREAM. It’s just as delicious as it sounds. We’re still in crazy, CRAZY startup mode, fermenting wine, making product, working on growing our online presence (Like us! Follow us!) – the usual. After the long and winding road that was the licensing/permitting process, we had a fantastic official “grand opening” on the wine festival circuit at Kegs and Corks on August 23rd. It was a great start and we can’t wait for our next event – this weekend’s Maryland Seafood Festival!
Oh, and besides all this, we’ve had to move forward pretty quickly on house projects after just a few things bit the dust on us: just the central air condenser and our kitchen appliances. Which means we are moving full steam ahead with essentially an entire rear-house reno. Like I said, no biggie!
Ok, I’d be completely lying to you if I told you life has been easy for us. It’s been nonstop crazyness for months now, with no signs of letting up. We go to bed and wake up exhausted. I’m a hot mess every day. Chris and I fight just as much as we always have, if not more. BUT, I will say that I don’t think I’ve ever been so productive – or felt so fulfilled. Sure, we’ll hit a breaking point sometime (probably several times, if we’re being honest). And I generally expect all the hypothetical worst-case scenarios I’ve worked up in my anxious little head to fully come to fruition. But for now, we are riding this wave and loving it!
So, forgive us if posts are nonexistant, slow or stupid for a while. We’ll get it together someday, I promise!
