I can't believe we are down to the last 71 hours of our campaign...time sure does fly by fast!
I am thrilled and beyond that we have reached our goal early and we still have a few days to spare. Lot's of exciting things have happened in the past few days. I now have lighting in the front area, above the pastry display and seating. Our floors have been finished and my office is set up (thanks Emily and Lindsay!). It looks super cozy in here. I'm still waiting for my glass display to be installed, sign work to be finished, coffee station to be finished, website to be launched and about a zillion, tiny tasks to be completed. There are so many moving parts to opening up a business!
Every day it takes on a new form and I'm so happy how things are turning out. The only bummer news, I've received so far is that city will be doing sewer construction right next to my shop about a week after I open. Perfect timing! Well, we will just make the best of it. I'm hoping that it won't take more than a few weeks to complete. Sidewalk will be open so that's a sliver lining to some not so awesome news.
So with 71 hours to go, my hope is that we can keep pushing to raise a little extra funds. Especially, with the construction going on it might hinder our jump start, so every little bit counts! If you can please keep sharing this or bump up your donation, it can make all the difference. I truly appreciate all of your generosity.
It's been so amazing to watch this transformation and receive all of this love from friends, supporters and total strangers. I'm so blown away by it. I just know it's going to be a special kind of place, where YOU can sit back and enjoy all kinds of dreamy, buttery goodness. We are so excited to share our kind of SUGAR LOVE with all of you. We are aiming for September 4th as our opening date. I will keep you posted. Fingers crossed!
