Two years ago, on July 26, 2016, we opened our Hurley House retail doors to the public. It was a dream come true to take the business out of our home kitchen and to design and outfit a commercial space.
Celebrating milestones is one of my favorite things about living. I believe in making much of anniversaries and events that mark a significant passage of time. My favorite way to mark special dates and occasions it to take a reflective look back and remember the time that has passed. As Don Draper taught us, nostalgia is a powerful force, and for me, I find that it spurs me on, reminding me of the way things used to be and the ways I have grown in the process.
If you’d like to read more about the history of Hurley House, I have written a series of blog posts outlining the story of not only the business, but also the original house on Hurley Avenue. They can be found here.
My favorite is the one I wrote on the day that we opened. It still makes me weepy when I read it.
I have also written a few words about the origin and development of our famous Sparkle Sandwich Cookie and the most unexpected gift I have received as a result of opening the store.
To all of our clients, thank you for making our store a success. We love serving you, getting to know you, and connecting with you. We look forward to many more years of celebrating!
