How we stay creative (& have a ton of fun!)

It’s not surprising that we have quite the creative team here at SHB. But how do we foster this creative energy and stay inspired? One word - culture. Our incredible team of women here at the bakery is intentional about being excitable and loud and life giving and we just wouldn't have it any other way. It really helps that we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Don't get me wrong - we are very serious about our work. But boy do we laugh at ourselves, and each other, a LOT! Being quick to laugh is a core value and these women are so funny...

SHB turns 3! Celebrating with a trip down memory lane 💖

It was three years ago this month that I shook things up and launched a business. This dream was born in me long before that, though. When I was a little girl, I played bakery at my Grandmom’s house.

So in the spirit of switching it up, it is fun to think of someone unexpected in your life that you can celebrate. This celebration is nothing major, just a note or a coffee or even a Cookie Carton to arrive at their door. We may try to do this at Christmas but often there are so many people to give to that it feels overwhelming. Who is one person that you can acknowledge simply...

SHB is Turning Two (& You're Invited to the Party!)

  Friends, come celebrate with us! We're having a birthday party on Thursday, August 1 & YOU are invited! It’s you who have believed in me and encouraged this business to grow. For that I am so grateful! Two years ago, I was working full time as a nurse at night and building my business during the day. I was working this side hustle ‘til August 1, 2017 when I received the licenses & permits to validate this dream as a legitimate business (yay!) Later that month, I walked out of the hospital for the last time & will never forget the joy...
