Tonight’s menu and baking are dedicated to
Happy Anniversary Middlebury American Flatbread
We are entering our third year here in Middlebury. This is the anniversary of a hopeful energetic crew of people embarking on a new adventure. We have seen some bumps in the road as does any new business, but we are still here and feeling good about it. Thank you so much to the Middlebury community and Addison County for welcoming us and producing much of the wonderful food you will be eating tonight. I am constantly reminded how interconnected we all are here in our small communities and how much each of our actions affect each other. On this anniversary my thoughts are gravitating toward peace. There is so much conflict in the world we all live in. I hope everyone can take a minute while they fill their bellies with good food and drink to wish goodwill on those around you. Peace starts every morning when you climb out of bed and make sure the dog has a chance to do their business before getting shut in for the day. It begins when you let someone go in front of you at an intersection when it is obvious they have been waiting a while. It begins when you are able from time to time to put someone else’s need above your own because it seems like the right thing to do. Maybe if we all can add an act of peace toward someone else each day it will be infectious and some day there will be a news broadcast about the alarming amount of happy people out there.
Thanks for coming, Beea
