Nestled between Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday is what I'm going to christen as Space to Breathe (for a bit) Sunday!

Having our grand opening on Small Business Saturday was a blessing in countless ways. We were hoping for a show of support from the local community as all small businesses do and we were lucky recipients of that support! We got to see some of our most loyal customers (and were absolutely thrilled to see Cindy and Bill as our very first customers because of course they were!) but we were pleasantly surprised to see so many new faces coming to indulge themselves unapologetically! I hope we can see those new faces become future loyal customers as well.

I cannot say "thank you" loud enough or often enough to everyone who has been with us the whole way, who live close or drove in from afar, or waited patiently until we opened our brick and mortar chocolate house to become customers. You chose us and we are grateful.

I'm also grateful for today, Space to Breathe Sunday, as it is allowing for Cheri and I to debrief and make quick adjustments and take in all the feedback we received and be ready for Cyber Monday and our future as shop-owning queers.

If you're wondering how you can you can support us, let me offer a few suggestions:

1) Place your Cyber Monday orders for yourself or those you unapologetically love as a way to see if you (or they) love our chocolates! If they do, consider getting them a Holiday Gift Box or a Monthly Truffle Subscription!

2) Tell your friends and co-workers about us. We saw new faces yesterday and so many of them were because of folx like you spreading the word. We also get a bit caught up in our lovely and cozy Muncie bubble, but there's a great big world out there that could really use some love, affirmation and chocolate.

3)) Give us about a week or so to get fully up-and-running and leave us a well-earned 5-star review on Google, Facebook, and Yelp!
