coming out...after dark...

it's the eve of our official ribbon cutting and sarah's 21st birthday celebration. we opened our windows to the world this evening. at least to the travelers on mayfield road.

it was a bit frightening. much like walking out on a runway in nyc. in a very skimpy outfit. i felt so exposed. up until now, i have been hiding behind the brown paper on the windows. i think it had somehow become my security blanket. like all young ones though, i guess it's time to grow up. so we neatly removed and folded away the unsightly paper. on went the spotlights. hello world. hello future.

Looks wonderful - wish I lived locally. I just opened up my business in February. It is very scary, but very worth it. I wish all the best and much success!
