Forty-five years ago yesterday, I left my job working on nuclear energy policy in Washington and bought this tiny 400-square foot store in a town I'd never been to - Westhampton Beach, New York. At the end of the first day, we had $87 in the register (before expenses!) and Jeffrey said sadly, "I don't think you'll make it here." I think he was really hoping I'd come to my senses and move back to Washington with him. Happily, Friday of Memorial Day weekend was a whole other story!
Life is all about taking a chance and figuring it out along the way. There have been easy days and tough days but they've all been fun and my, what a journey it's been. Thank you to everyone who has come along for the ride.
Memorial Day is about commemorating and honoring those who have lost their lives fighting for our country. I think it's so lovely that we do this by getting together with loved ones over a meal. I shared my Memorial Day Menu this week on Instagram and it's listed below!
Wishing you a safe and Happy Memorial Day weekend! xxxx-ina
