Alberta Hours Changes

We love this street! We live here, too (and we have for over 15 years!). That’s why we chose this great neighborhood for our expansion. We joyfully opened our Alberta doors in October of 2014 and after 9 months of trial and error and very close tracking of our sales, we have finally honed in …

A Procrastinator’s Labor Day Weekend

We love the fact that Summer here lasts well into September. In fact, early September we can usually count on for having the BEST weather of the year; it’s in the 80’s with very little chance of rain OR 90 degree heat. Perfection. For some of you, this weekend marks the last “official” weekend of …
