The old girl has a new look!  We invite you to take her for a test drive, see what we’ve been up to, and tell us what you think.

We have worked hard to dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s. If you find a link that doesn’t work or something that doesn’t read right, please drop us a note--fresh eyes are welcome! We’ll send you a coupon as a thank you for taking the time.

Like small business owners everywhere, we are using downtime and the altered economic reality imposed by Covid-19 to tackle long delayed projects and think about ways to safely connect with our customers. Updating a website that has heretofore been “good enough” became a necessary priority.
Thank you Hollis!
My dear friend Hollis is a true renaissance woman who wears many hats with grace and quiet wisdom. She is the technical brain and skilled, ever-patient teacher in this endeavor, while I am the willing worker bee climbing the learning curve, ambitious to create an inviting, easy to navigate website for Sweetlife customers.

It has been a fun challenge. While we both have prior websites under our belt, neither of us anticipated how much time building this one would take, and we are both cursed with a need to see things through to the last detail. I am humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude for her commitment and long hours when her project list is as long as my own! 

Cheesy Metaphors 
Building a website reminds me of building our house: it is a long labor of love and learning, feels like we're almost done, and the punch list for getting to the finish line seems endless. Thank goodness we had a wonderful contractor for both!

It's like the garden: no matter how much time you spend working on it there is always another weed to pull and more details to tweak.

It’s the end of  "Juneuary" in the Pacific Northwest, a month of frequent cool rainy days reminding us that summer doesn't really arrive until July 5th. This year instead of whining about it, I found a pretty good rhythm of working in the garden on sunny days, and have been thankful for rainy day time to work on the website.

In the end, building a website is like parenting: there are many ways to do it, with no one right or wrong way, and somehow the kid grows up to be a fine adult.
