Two Things

1. WADE AND I TOOK A LITTLE ROAD TRIP…it was for business of course! We found a freezer to put in our ice cream truck on Craigslist. It was a couple hours south, but it was about 1/4 the price as a new one so we thought “what the heck, let’s check it out!”. So we headed south…

The directions led us to a sketchy, ghetto, barren industrial complex. Did I mention sketchy? I may or may not have told Wade I wasn’t getting out of the truck… and as soon as we walked through the cracked-glass door, boy was I glad I did. Holy restaurant supply! Tucked away in this random, void of any signage, warehouse is this amazing Mecca of everything restaurant. They had it all! From beautiful used commercial ovens to espresso machines to ice cream freezers. They had an extremely random collection of manikins too,  which were just downright terrifying…

We decided to get the ice cream freezer (sans manikin) for the ice cream truck! Which means the truck is NEAR COMPLETION! Now, this restaurant Mecca was essentially self serve, Wade loaded the freezer into our truck himself…

Totally worth the trek. And totally worth having to load it up ourselves.

She’s a beauty! Now to get some cute signage on that thing…

2. PHOTO AND THANKS

I snapped this photo on my way into the creamery the other morning. It was at that moment in dawned on me how thankful I am to be able to live where I live (the most beautiful place on Earth…just my opinion though…), and be able to do what I do.

Those of you who are close to me, or those of you who too have started your own company, know that it is a crazy ride (understatement of the year). Starting, running and growing my small business has been both the most stressful and rewarding task of my life. But receiving so many positive emails, comments and calls, fulfills me to no end. In the past week I have TWICE been told “this was the best ice cream I have ever had”, which pretty much makes my year. Thank you for all your support; I wouldn’t trade this crazy ride for the world.
