Sorry for being MIA from both the store and the blog for a while. Justin and I both have been away, as I got surprised last weekend with my first trip to the ER and subsequent surgery, and Justin's been taking care of me ever since. I got some crucial stomach pains all last weekend and when I realized they weren't going away we decided to go to the hospital. Turns out there was a large mass in my abdomen that had been growing for a long time. Doctors said it needed to go.

It's been over a week and I have yet to leave the house. The boys at the store (Dameian, Reid and Nate) have all been AMAZING. They really stepped up to the plate and have been pulling double duty. They've taken over the things that I usually do - like food prep and grocery shopping. Of course, I still was orchestrating beer deliveries from my hospital bed, as there will always be a part of me that needs to be part of the action.

We're hoping to be back in the swing of things by the end of the week - just in time for Christmas! Thank you for all the love, flowers and best wishes you've sent our way. We really appreciate it.



  1. Feel better Katie! Hope you make a speedy and safe recovery.

  2. Oh no! Hope you're feeling 100% again soon, Katie!

  3. Oh Katie, I'm so sorry that happened. I hope you are feeling better and getting stronger. I know what it feels like to go through a major surgery and it's not easy! Love you!
