The first decoration has arrived.

We’re proud of our family heritage.

All combined we have some Norwegian, German, Cambodian, Chinese, and a hint of Native American.

However…

Above all else.  We are American.  We were born and raised here in the USA.  If America didn’t exist, Tyson’s ancestors wouldn’t have come across the Atlantic from Norway and Germany.  If America didn’t exist Mary’s family wouldn’t have come across the Pacific from Cambodia.  If the United States never existed, Mary and Tyson would have never met.

So it’s fitting.  Before we brought in anything else, we brought in the United States flag.

Buckle your seat belts and hang on.  It’s going to be a fun ride!


We signed our lease!

Today, we took the plunge and signed the lease for our commercial space!

This is incredibly exciting (and scary) for us.  It’s the first big step towards opening up.  We don’t have investors, big bank loans or rich friends helping us out…It’s do or die trying!

We’ll follow up with pictures of the space and our progress as it comes along!

Skål Venn!
