Two Years

Our restaurant has been open for two years as of today.

Two years.

Of course, it took a lot longer than that to actually get the place open. Four separate SBA loans to take over a destroyed building and turn it into a functioning business.

It seems like just a few months ago, yet, like eons ago at the same time. We’ve lived at Paizano’s every day, all day, for Two Years.

Working a 14-hour day is normal. Whitey says that Thursdays are his “day off” because he only works for 6 hours.

We’ve put every ounce of energy and sanity into this place.

Sometimes I question if we should be open so much – 11am until 10pm is crazy, right? We’d have so much more of a life if we were only open for lunch, or if we were closed on Sundays like most restaurants in Baker City.

Yet, we keep on keepin’ on.

Here’s to another two years, and then two years after that. I just hope that I’m not completely grey-haired and wrinkled by then. 🙂

PS: Have I mentioned lately how much I love my husband?
