I know it's a small town - and it's very likely that if you're reading this, you're related to me - but welcome to my blog about my new shop Mocha Violet. My name is Karla Mitton. I am 27 years old and I grew up on a farm just south of Ridgetown. After several years away at school and a short stint out west, my hometown boy and I returned home to marry. When an opportunity came knocking to open a business next door to his family's, I couldn't pass it up!
I am delighted to share Mocha Violet's opening with you! My intent is to create a shop with a warm and inviting atmosphere where one can come and leave feeling refreshed and inspired. Violet was my grandmother's name and I plan on filling my shop with sweet little indulgences she would approve of! The mocha part is attributed to my mother-in-law (a term we shall henceforth dismiss of and refer to her only as Rosemary!) She awoke exhausted one morning after working hard at my shop all night in a dream. The name Mocha Violet was still buzzing in her brain. That, my friends, is a good omen!
Thank-you Ridgetown for your support. I hope you will enjoy the blog as I post updates and pictures on the renos and new developments! I am nervous, overwhelmed and...Exhilarated! If you don't try, you've already failed - so here goes nothing!
