2 weeks in with hgtv

Wow, what a whirlwind of a time. The last two weeks since hometown takeover finally aired, and we were lucky yo be in the first episode.

I can’t even begin to explain how special it all has been. Getting to be a part of something so big, helping our town in so many ways, and sharing our story is so humbling. We are so grateful for everyone who was a part of it all and are so excited for what’s to come!

After the show aired on HGTV two weeks ago, I awoke with over two hundred messages from people all over sending well wishes, congratulations,  and planning to visit us in our little cafe.

Every day since we have had people traveling from all over just to see us and experience the town and all the projects, places, and sites.

It’s really overwhelming, and I get goosebumps thinking about it. I’ve always wanted to have a place to share with people in a much bigger way, and thanks to HGTV, they made it all possible.

It’s still so surreal to me that this has all happened. It’s been so touching to hear people’s stories of them coming to visit, taking pictures of the cafe, and of my husband and I. Getting to share in their experience is all so memorable and a very special time.

Molly Yeh from Girl Meets Farm on Food Network made a scone recipe just for us.

Meeting the stars, the crew, and everyone working on this project was truly memorable, and we are so grateful and lucky to be a part of this and will cherish this time always.
