open for biznatch

i couldn't be more pleased with opening day. there was a steady stream of customers, i met some wonderful people, talked to so many neighbors who were excited to welcome me to the block, sold A LOT of stuff!, ate cupcakes, got flowers, had an exceptional hair day, paid the first month's rent! and went home tired and happy.
