Craziest year ever!

I think we are all in the same boat here. 2020 has been quite the year. In my wildest dreams I could have never pictured the ups and downs this year has brought to us and everyone else on this planet.


I originally started writing this blog about all the struggles this year has been for us and our business. And then I reread it and thought... "yuck." Why would we ever want to focus on that? Also, as many challenges as we have faced, we have also had just as many joys! We haven't had any of our family or friends die from Covid, Kevin and I are still healthy, and our business is still operating. So as big of a bummer as this year has been, we have been luckier then most.


We feel especially bad for all the people out there who work for the hospitality industry and food industry. I can not imagine what it has been like for them. We have a restaurant here on our Island that was closed for Covid. They just weren't set up for take out so they kept their doors closed till seating was allowed. They were open for only a couple weeks when one of their staff tested positive for Covid so they shut back down while everyone was tested. They reopened again and within another week or two they had to shut back down because the AC went out. That's just a nightmare! There are so many stories like that just on our little island, so I can't imagine what it is like out there in the real world.


We are so grateful for all the amazing customers we have had this year so far! We love the visitors we get here on Hatteras Island and we feel so lucky we get to do what we do every day. Thank you for stopping by our site and for taking the time to read this! We are going to try and be better about blogging from here on out so stay tuned....
