My intentions have been good. I promise. I wanted to start this beautiful blog about my adventures with Pies + Petals. Maybe even share a few baking tips, new creations, and the occasional personal photo to relate to my audience. But six months time has passed and here we are, lacking in posts, however.. I've got plenty of content. Let's play a bit of catch up.
There's a lot of transitioning going on around here. I resigned from my 'real job'. I'm moving out to the country. I've got far away family coming back into town. I'm starting a small group for baking + discussion. Although these are all good things, life is a lot to handle, so there's this to remember always: "Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
ON THE HORIZON
Coffee is the best. People in the coffee business are also some of the best. I'm excited to announce that Pies + Petals will be partnering with Jirani Coffeehouse in Old Town Manassas! Not only will you be able to buy pie by the slice, but I'll also have a variety of baked goods for sale to pair with your beverage. You'll even have the option to pick up your online orders in-store! Jirani is scheduled for a grand opening sometime this Fall, in the meantime make sure to follow @jiranicoffee and like them on Facebook to stay updated.
Here's a film of one of the owners, Ken Moorman, giving his awesome vision for the shop:
The past six months have held a lot of exciting adventures. From west coast travels and taking my baking course at The San Francisco Baking Institute to catering a gorgeous wedding that happened to be featured on Style Me Pretty (more to come on this soon), I am very thankful for the incredible experiences I've had so far. Here are some visuals:
UPDATE: New Door to Door Delivery Schedule
Pies + Petals will maintain door to door deliveries, but I'm changing how it works a bit. Starting September 7th, Pies + Petals will make deliveries on Thursday and Friday only, to guarantee delivery please place your orders on the preceding Monday by 4p.
I'll try to keep updating this little blog, can't make any promises though. I can promise that I will keep on making pies (lots of 'em), and I may even release my Autumn menu soon.. Thanks for following along with Pies + Petals!
