Oh the competition was fierce. There are so many awesome businesses in Lynchburg that it was crazy to think that little old me would win a small business of the year award. I was just thinking that since you can't get any smaller than our business that we might have a shot. We didn't win. It was a great honor to have been nominated and I'd like to thank my awesome bride Amy Hunt Lawson for the privilage!

More later. Running a little behind this week because of the holiday. I hope everyone had a safe and happy Memorial Day and remembered that the holiday is an occasion for us to remember all of those who have lost their lives in defense of this great country. I am thankful for their sacrifice every day, as well as our troups, veterans, firemen, police and first responders. God bless the USA!

Busy, busy, busy.

Oh to have more hours in the day! Been so busy making cakes and remodeling a real estate project and planting flowers and trying to squeeze in every other little thing that I want/need to do. It's challenging and fun. I'm having a blast. Hopefully the remodeling will be done in the next few weeks and I can focus on some things that have had to slide - like this blog.

Wedding season is kicking into high gear. I had 4 wedding cakes last weekend along with a couple of graduation and other cakes, 3 weddings this weekend and a birthday, grooms cake, bridal shower, and one or two others. I can normally do 3-4 wedding cakes per weekend unless they are very large. I'm so thankful for all of my customers and happy that so many people come back time and again to order my cakes.

Now for some really big news - I have been nominated for the Lynchburg Chamber of Commerce small business award to be announced on May 20th at a luncheon at the Hilton Garden Inn. There is a lot of great competition and I know I'm not likely to win (I'm the tiniest fish in a pretty big pond) it's still a fabulous thrill and honor to have been nominated. More coming soon on that - I'll let you know how I did. If you would like to go to the luncheon again it's May 20th from 11:30 - 1:30 at the Hilton Garden Inn on Wards Road. Admission is $20 for Chamber members and $30 for non-members. Reservations are required and should be made by May 15th - that's tomorrow - so call 434-845-5966 or email info@lynchburgchamber.org. Wish me luck! :)

Have a great day!
