Have you heard the news??!!

I haven't posted in a very long time-I blame wedding/graduation season 100%! It's that time of year where every spring weekend is filled with weddings, showers and keeps me hoppin'!

Yeah, yeah I'm busy...I'm always nutty busy, that's not the reason for this post. I wanted to officially let my people (all 48 of you) know the big news. We are growing! Well, actually I am growing, at a very rapid rate non the less. Yes, if you haven't heard my husband and I are expecting our first baby in October. We are just over the moon with excitement and can't wait for her to get here. Yes, I said her....It's a GIRL!!

So after all of the joy/excitement/panic subsided I really had to think long and hard about what to do with the cake biz. This totally freaks me out--it is our second "official" year of business and it is growing like crazy. The thought of having to turn customers away makes me nauseous (and it's not from the pickles and jalapeno chips I had for breakfast). After thinking long and hard I came to this conclusion....We are going to be closed from October through January 1st. This might not seem drastic to many of you, but for a custom bakery with one employee, it is.

During this 3 month hiatus I will still be responding to e-mails and booking appointments for the 2012 wedding season which I will begin consultations for in December...just no making of the cakes.

I hope everyone understands this decision is uber hard for me (I am a bit of an obsessive when it comes to cakes) but it is what I feel I need to do for our new little Leisure :-)


Side bar: If you are planning on a spring 2012 wedding I recommend giving me a ring soon. I am already booking for May and June :-)

Yay, congrats on the baby girl!! They are so much fun with the cute clothes and toys. I'm so excited for you. And as for being closed you have to do what's best for you and the family!!

Jenny you know I am over the moon for you. The bride I sent you a couple of days ago told me your decision and it's a good one....these "firsts" come so few and far between! Enjoy each and every one of them. Your business will bounce back so quick! :) No worries!

Congrats and good luck with everything. I was just thinking the other day that I wish my girls were still young so I could dress them. So many cutie patootie girly clothes.
