Where my paycheck goes

A new cheese shop opened a few miles from my house. I have been going there every weekend since they arrived. I have gotten to know the owner very well. She really knows her cheeses and takes a lot of pride in her products. She knows each cheese maker she buys from and knows their story. She gets so excited for you to taste what she has and experience something different.

Not only does she carry cheese, but she also has some great salamis and has fresh baked bread brought in from a local bakery as well. There are other things too like some of the most delicious chocolates I have ever had and great pickles and olives and things like that.

Her hours are limited because she has a son that she wants to be able to spend time with and she does not have anyone who knows the cheeses as well as she does so she does not want to be out of the shop so that she can give good explanations about what everything is. That really impressed me about her. She has such pride in what she sells that she is willing to forgo some sales by having shortened hours so that her customers are properly educated.

I stopped in last weekend to let her know I was going to NY for the weekend and wanted to bring a sampling of cheeses to my brother and SIL. I was not going to be able to get there during her hours though. Without missing a beat she picked out three cheeses for me and told me she would deliver them to my house after hours so that I had the freshest stuff I could have. I thought that was great.

If anyone is ever in the area, check out the shop here.

Good thing she's all the way over there or I fear my paychecks would belong to her as well. Lovely shop!

They say that if a woman wants to attract a man she should smell like food. Cheese is as good as anything!

I want to take a vacation there! It looks great, and I know I would be spending some money there too!

We have yet to try the ice cream Frank, but they have a glow in the dark mini-golf there too which looks like fun. I am sure we will check that out this winter. There is also a pizza place there that is decent.
