Is this thing on?

Tap tap tap. Is this thing on? Can you hear me? Oh wow - {clears throat}, hey. It's been a pretty exciting week at Village Bread. Our first real week. I posted the website on Facebook and lots of friends shared. I wasn't completely ready to go public, but I knew if I waited to be *ready* I might never have shared it. I created the website in response to the heartbreak, grief and anguish in the world. I felt paralyzed by what felt like a deluge of sadness. I needed to do something, anything, no matter how small, to combat the despair threatening to overwhelm me and those around me. So I threw caution to the wind via the Village Bread website hoping to put some goodness out into the world. One teeny tiny ray of light. The response was incredible! I don't know what I expected. I just needed to share even a glimmer of hope. I hadn't even considered what I was going to do if I got more orders than I could handle.

As it turned out, I got everything I could have asked for. Loving support, cheers and words of encouragement, and a half dozen orders. Sheer perfection!

So this week I baked 8 loaves of artisan sourdough, 4 loaves of challah and 2 loaves of brown sugar cinnamon swirl. There was so much satisfaction everywhere. The recipients of the donated loaves were so happy.

On to week two.
