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.

In the swing of things

Being back at the cafe is like a breath of fresh air. Good food, good friends, and great coffee too. People gathering and spending time with loved ones, coworkers, old friends, new acquaintances, first dates, celebrations, I have missed them all.

I love hearing the buzz in the air when the cafe is full and everyone is talking and it feels like magic. Zazzy Cafe is a special place and when people come in to see the new remodel or sign our guest book with comments, it makes it all worth it.

We’ve been back open one month now, and it’s been a lot of fun having people come and experience the new space.

At the end of the day, I have a moment to unwind. While I make my matcha latte and sit on a swing I can take it all in and say it was all worth it.

I’m so grateful for the new memories we will get to create here.

Here’s some photos from this week….until next time~J

Christmas Time and a café update!

Another month has gone by and we’re so close to having our cafe back open! I can’t wait to decorate it for the holidays and serve gingerbread lattes and our new scones. It has been a bit over four months now since we closed down for renovations. I must say that time has flown by.

People around town are buzzing with questions. When we will be back open? What is the new menu like? How was it meeting the people from the show? It has been an exciting time, I feel blessed to be here and a part of things to come.

The past four months have given us many opportunities and time to reflect on the past year of owning our little cafe. We have come a long way since my husband and I bought it. Thanks to Jenny, Dave, the whole crew, workers, and staff have taken it and my dream to a whole new level.

In the spirit of Christmas, I’m thankful for what we have and can share with people all over the world. Being back in our cafe means so much to me. It is a special place, and this is a special time of year that magical things happen. This has been my dream, as a chef, and small business owner. It’s the greatest gift and I get to share it with everyone who walks through our little cafe every day.

Happy holidays to all of you! Until next time~J
