Islands in the Stream. . .

They told us we were crazy when we told them that we were going to quit our stable, paying, professional jobs and open a bakery together.  Some (namely Michelle's husband) requested (read "begged) us not to.  They told us it wouldn't work.  They told us it wouldn't be worth it.  They must have forgotten that our heritage is Italian and Italian women are fighters who rise to a challenge.  

We did it anyway. . .and here we are, a long way from the professional, heel-wearing, briefcase toting, dolled up girls we used to be.  Nowadays we wear flour-coated jeans and aprons.  Nina has developed an affinity for her pink crocs and is never seen without them.  Our hair is always up, our faces are smudged with chocolate and we sport tattoos (read "oven burns") on our arms.  We climb ladders to change filters, do dishes endlessly and scoop drains when needed.  Eighteen hour days find us crooning to The Dixie Chicks, baking away, waiting on customers and trying to keep up with emails.  

We truly had no clue.  We have learned a lot.  If we had it to do over again we would definitely do things differently.  BUT, we would never give up where we are right now for anything.  Owning your own business is hard.  That simple phrase cannot encompass how hard it actually is.  But if it were easy, everyone would do it.  If it were easy, it just might not be worth it.  

We LOVE what we do.  Every week we will try to give you a glimpse into our life.  Follow along here for real life stories of two sisters turned bakery owners, recipes, baking tips and a whole lot more.  

We may be Islands in the stream, but honestly, it doesn't get much better than Kenny and Dolly.
