Is summer over?

Today is Saturday. Yesterday was Friday. The last late Friday night of the 2023 season. It's bittersweet. We say good bye to some old friends and to some new ones. We wish all of our student employees the best of luck in their upcoming academic year and hope the get closer to their dreams and goals. Some will return, some will move on to greener pastures. It's truly an honor to help teach and instill a little retail wisdom to all the great students. For those of us that will be here all year, we'll get back to our non-summer routines. Early mornings will soon be upon us as we struggle to get kids ready for school while we get ourselves ready for work. Is the summer really over? It's going to be hot for a while yet, and the humidity is not going anywhere anytime soon.Our family will be spending more time at the park and the ball field and less time at the beach but we'll do our best to enjoy it all. I sincerely hope that you do the same. Enjoy it all. Sure, it may be a year until the next vacation with family and friends and you'll smile when a memory from your time together pops into your head, but don't stop making those memories. The hustle and bustle of life can cause a lot noise but if we don't slow down and listen hard we may miss the music. Make more memories this year, and when I see you next time share one with me. I'll share one with you, and we'll have one together. That's what it's all about. It's bittersweet. We'll miss the hustle and bustle of the summer, the later nights at work, meeting all of you, cutting fudge, cutting lots and lots of fudge, and the sleeping in (until 7:30) but we will enjoy the time we get to spend with our family and friends in the off season making our new memories.

Thank you everyone. This has been another great season and we have our fantastic (and some times fanatical) customers to thank for it all. We love you all and are so thankful that you support us year after year. We will spend a lot of time planning for your next visit and hope that being here will bring you some joy. See you all next year and God bless.
