The more I realize how the state of gratefulness benefits my joy and happiness, the more I try to practice it every moment of the day. It aligns me instantly with my deepest passions.

This past year has been such an incredible year for me and my family and extended our family (our wonderful staff!!) at Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and Lettuce Love Cafe.

Kelly Childs' and gratitude

Thank you to all of our customers and friends who have been there for us through it all. We’re on a path to change the world, one cupcake and green smoothie at a time, and to encourage deep healing and a re-connection with Mother Earth through delicious whole foods and to get everyone ‘back into the kitchen’ and say “NO” to industrialized junk food.

Our staff continue to dazzle me every day and this post is about how grateful I am for them. Thank you to EVERY one of you at Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and Lettuce Love Cafe. Where would we be without each of you giving 100% daily. It’s a ton of hard work sometimes but at the end of the day, I hope you know how much we love and appreciate you. I’d also like to thank their spouses and/or significant others (even Pugs) 🙂 for being their supportive partner to each of them at home. Isn’t that what life’s all about?  Kindness and love and gratefulness from your most trusted ‘best friend’.

I’m proud that Erinn and I get to contribute, in our own way, to each of our staff – (I hope in a positive way) to become better people; to push the envelope of greatness and to go beyond what we ever dreamed possible. We’re blessed to have such a passionate group of people that found their way to us and I just want to say “Thank you” to each one of you.

 

Love and Happiness forever,
