Your Valentine's Day Server - and a Winner!

{at your service!}
Happy Valentine's Day! Yesterday, I volunteered to be a server at a Valentine's Brunch fundraiser. We raised money for a wonderful scholarship fund for non-profit eba, Inc., an arts group that provides dance workshops for children, and never turns anyone down due to their ability to pay.

I had never waitressed before, I did the paint crew thing when I was young. So, as your newly minted waitress, I can tell you that the pea soup is vegetarian, gluten and dairy free; the clear chicken soup with vegetables does have gluten as it was made with canned Cottage Inn Stock; and the corn chowder is indeed creamy and full of dairy and bacon. Because people did ask!

And on a sweet note we have a WINNER for the "vintage" clothing giveaway! Congratulations to lucky #8, Danielle of Fresh Quince!

  5. Cute picture! You know, I waitressed in college, and it could actually be pretty fun. I made some good money, but had lots of bad dreams about my section forever expanding with more and more tables!! Happy Valentine's Day!

  10. You look just the ticket! And very professional! I was a paint crew person and a (terrible) waitress when I was at Uni. The whole dining world can sigh with relief that I didn't continue...I like the top hats in the backrgound..
