It is with mixed emotions that I announce the closing of Tastefully Yours on Sunday, December 15, 2019. During the last 13 years, it has been my pleasure to welcome you into our little shop. I have had the opportunity to share unique experiences of hearing about your marriage proposals, births of your children, and high school and college graduations. I have watched some of your children grow into young adults and return for first wine tastings. We have shared together sad moments - deaths of parents, spouses, and siblings. Through heartfelt conversations over good food and good wine, we have touched each other's lives.
Hopefully each time you visited, you left feeling that your welcome was warm and sincere. While Tastefully Yours will not be here, there will be a new business to welcome you. "The Spot On Mill" will open its cafe-wine and beer shop January 2020. Please welcome them with open arms like you did our little place.
"Molly" our resident spirit and "Baby" our resident cat are staying. So, don't forget to greet them when you visit. Occoquan will always hold a special place in my heart with fond memories of Billy, Momma Cat, Craft Shows, Paws with Claus, Christmas Open House, and tree lightings. I will miss welcoming you and your four-legged friends. Through the years there have been some special people to help me define the character of Tastefully Yours. Special thanks to David and Dale who made our beer room unique. Judy, Joey, and Becky for adding social touches to our menu selections. Dinora and Tawnya for keeping the kitchen running smoothly and the food beautifully prepared and presented, and always meeting my, "I was thinking, what if we..." with a smile and willingness to try. Audrey, Chloe, and Hannah for servicing our tables. Patrick, Debra, Tanya, and Beverly for making our wine tastings personal and fun. To Heather for fixing crashed websites, Instagram postings, and new wine and cheese labels and designing two Peep Show displays. And, to my great nieces and nephews who spent numerous summers and anytime available (Nicole, Madison, Emma, Nathan, Chloe, Gabe, and Anna) keeping the family feeling alive in our little shop.
Thank you to our many visitors over the years for your support, friendships, and allowing me to share in your lives.
