I remember when I was a child I looked at the year 2000 and thought just how old I would be - didn't even consider how old I'd be in 2018 for gods sake! This year taught me just how much life there is to an older woman (and an older man). The young "me" would have been shocked. We surprised ourselves daily on just how much we accomplished each and every day during the renovation of our lovely Inn. We leapt (...maybe crept) out of our comfortable respective boxes and although we earned bruises and our spirits were bit battered at times, we were eventually rewarded with a fabulous sense of pride and accomplishment. We demo'd, sanded, painted, hammered, scraped and grouted... then we welcomed our first guests, made beds, poured wine & toasted special events, cooked breakfasts and hugged them goodbye. So 2018, although you have made us another year older we wouldn't change our little slice of you. We have been rewarded with a great gift - that of a business where most of what we do is make people happy and at times, are blessed to call them friends.
Here's to all the future friends 2019 will bring. Happy New Year.
merry merry, its never too late
wishing you a season full of joy and a new year full of kindness.
love.... Corey & Mark, The Bond 1835
