I grew up in a restaurant. Literally, my family lived in an old farmhouse and the downstairs was our restaurant. We were ahead of the time - growing and raising much of the food we served right there. My parents instilled many values in me, but two of the most important were to treat everyone the same (no matter where they come from, what they look like, or who they love) and to be a good keeper of the planet (reduce, reuse, and recycle). I rely on these values in my business everyday. I am so honored to participate in anyone's special occasion, especially when it's their "big day." And, I'm thrilled to proclaim that "I Stand Up" for equal marriage rights.
