...To get our butts to a warmer climate! We're packing up and getting out of Dodge - to be near family and the beach! Joe has been given a wonderful opportunity to open a new store in Tampa, Florida, and we're jumping on it. My entire family is within two hours of there, and since I haven't had much time to spend with my eighty-two-year-old mother in the past several years, I am thrilled to be moving to her area. We will be temporarily closing up shop here at Joey Biscotti! but once we get settled in Florida, we'll reopen with a sweet vengeance. We'll have to do some product testing down there and garner new customers, but we've found that, "if you bake it, they will come...." And we're excited about making new friends, but will dearly miss the old ones. We're so thankful to have met and been able to share our lives and our baked goods with so many of you here on the east coast, and though we'll be on the west coast of Florida - we're only moments away on the internet, and plan on staying that way. We'll still be able to ship cookies and biscotti, and hope that our friends from all over the country will continue to keep us in mind when ordering for those special occasions, holidays, and midnight snack attacks!
Stay tuned for interesting up-dates about our experience of moving and making a fresh start.
Ciao for now...
