I’m not sure what everyone else feels like but personally it doesn’t feel like summer until we open our doors for the season. Even with this wonderful summer-ish weather we’ve been having the last month – it’s not officially summer till I can walk into the kitchen, smell those delicious rolls I’m sooo addicted to and catch up with all our staff and patrons that I haven’t seen during those winter months.
The count down is on – we open our doors THIS FRIDAY! The month of May has flown by, renovations, preparing the building, hiring new staff and a few functions to get our feet wet. I’m not quite in the working train of thought yet but soon enough it will be like we never left… Like I tell our staff when they walk in the door for their first shift of the season and are feeling the butterflies, ” It’s like riding a bike – you never really forget”.
Many including myself feel like it’s not even like you are going to work but instead you are going to “hang out” with your friends and make some new ones! It really does make the days fly by when you get to work with such a great crew… the only down side to this is that because the days fly by so fast so does the SUMMER! So here I am wishing everyone a wonderful summer that lasts longer then usual and don’t forget to take time out of your busy day to just kick back and relax and enjoy the summer while it’s here.
