Wonderful, terrifying and everything in-between. A year ago we had our first guests – how many people can say they set a date to open and actually had guests on that date? And – because I am blessed – continued to have guests. Maybe not as many as I had hoped but not as few as I had feared. I was blessed also to be able to host the Samara Beach Bible Church for several months, hosted also a spectacularly fun Christmas Eve dinner/service and survived a pretty nasty fall. Found out that I can really count on the people I surround myself with. It’s been a year to learn more and more about this beautiful place I live in and to appreciate it’s quirks. Here’s to the years to come – if you’re ever in the area stop by, have a drink or coffee -take a swim – visit with me.
