I Never Thought…

One of the most amazing clients I have had long term… let me tell you about her: she has to be around 55 years old and her name is Rita. She has been coming to my shop for cakes for over 8 years now. She shops with me for sweets for whatever occasion it is: birthdays, graduations, funerals (sadly!), picnics.

I love clients like that! I love knowing that my event specific, specifically customized cakes bring them joy. I love that the cake is the best dessert my clients and their guests experience! Back from that tangent…

Rita has been a client for close to a decade. She has referred more business to me than I can recall. In fact, once a year, she drops by to grab around 30 of my business cards so she can sprinkle them around. Anyway, so, she had a very sweet picnic planned for her grandson’s 16th birthday at a nearby park. The sweetest thing is that she invited me.

I told her that I wasn’t planning on going but just in case I had a couple of hours free, I would definitely drop by. Since it was being held on a Saturday, weekends are iffy for me. They are the busiest days for this Cake Lady!

The Best Saturday With My Client!

Lo and behold, that Saturday came. Rita picked up her grandson’s cake that I had made with my own hands. As she was picking up the cake, I wished her and her family a grand day.

My daughter who sometimes lends me a hand, overheard our conversation and found it ridiculous that I would not be attending Rita’s family event. She told me she was fine holding down the fort for a couple of hours. Heck! My daughter is a capable woman so I thought, “Sarah! You never give yourself a break. At least drop by and say hi!”

I told Rita I would drop by in about an hour after a quick shower. I went home, showered up, and then went to the park where they were having the barbecue for Rita’s grandson’s party. Now, don’t get me wrong: I’ve driven past this park for 15 years but have I ever stopped and enjoyed it? Truthfully & sadly, no!

It was beautiful! They had canoes and something called an Oru Bay+ kayak that Rita and her husband had gotten their grandson. It was a beautiful family event against a perfect blue sky with no clouds in site. I wished the youngster a happy birthday, enjoyed a burger off the grill, and even went canoeing with her family.

I suppose since I’m starting off this blog space, I want to thank the most loyal of my clients and also highlight businesses and resources, locally, nationally, online, and internationally, lol. Because running a small business is NOT easy. Doing your own thing is NOT easy. Not only do you want to do what you’re passionate about, but all of a sudden, you have to learn how to run a business. Most people think it’s easy; this, however, couldn’t be farther from the truth!

I have had smooth days but also disastrous days. Take stock over the years and I’ve been “almost out of business” 3 times in 12 years. Maybe that’s good, maybe that’s bad. However, that’s entrepreneurship and that’s life. I wouldn’t take it any other way. I have worked hard all my life and I love owning my own bakery. I love that I have such a supportive local community, family, and the entrepreneurs I have gotten to know over the years.

Anyway, peace & love to everyone out there.
