2017 Hurricane Irma


After 13 years in business,
even the Hurricane can't keep us down.

Due to Hurricane Damage,
we have a limited supply of
Birthday Grams available for now.

Hurricane Updates Below
We APPRECIATE
EVERY ORDER and EVERY DOLLAR
to get us closer to our new Garage/warehouse.
THANK YOU

This is my husband with our goats.

AGG, I remember our nice green lawn...
Sigh.... Gone but not forgotten...


This is a family Graduation Celebration.

My Backyard
The morning after Hurricane Irma 2017

Where is my warehouse?

We had to close the business for a few weeks,
I was so worried that 12 years
of work was all destroyed.

September 2017
My warehouse with my entire business is under there.
Waiting for the insurance to get back to us so we can begin to clean up. The not knowing what is salvageable is killing me.

12 years of my life are under that tree.

Finally, after an ok to cut the tree from our Insurance Agent,
we can cut the tree up to see the damages.
Since my husband works, he can only cut and clean up trees on the weekends when it is not raining. It is a BIG job.


It was overwhelming at times and
when I was ready to just quit the business,
you were there encouraging me to keep going,
Thank you for all your prayers, emails, Facebook Messages, orders and kind words. 
We (my family) and I ♥ REALLY Appreciate You!

We are praying that all the signs fell sideways.
I was just holding my breath for what seemed like weeks!!


Updated Oct 4th

GREAT News 
It looks like all our shelves fell sideways
and 80% of our signs are undamaged.
We just need to Inspect, clean and relocate them.  
Then rebuild a carport to put them in.


October 11, 2017 
We have been cleaning and inspecting all or signs to see what is currently available and updating our website daily.

We are in the process of planning a new garage
to store all the Birthday Grams to keep them clean and protected.

Now for the rest of the mess to get cleaned up.

What a mess - It makes my stomach hurt.


The tree is FINALLY off the roof!
Now we just need to cut it up and hall everything away.

Cleaning up the tree, and bagging up some garbage.
I'm just dreaming of my new warehouse.

Cutting that huge tree into logs and moving them.
While bagging up more items that were destroyed.
What a mess. I can't even begin to tell you the stress that our insurance company does to you.
I was told we have the BEST insurance coverage you can buy
and they don't want to cover anything!
The fight continues...

12/18
My husband was called out to help fix a Hospital HVAC system in Miami for a few weeks so progress has slowed....

Merry Christmas?

The decking from our screen room is getting removed. Next will be the tiny Apartment.






My husband has used his last vacation days to work on the mess.
We (mostly my husband and son)
decking, screen room the shed this week.
While I bagged up debris and garbage!

It is a long work in process.
We are getting there! 

The Tiny Apartment is now down













It may not look better but it took a lot of work to get to this point.

Teddy is hauling away drywall to the dumpster today.



When I was ready to just quit, the business,
you were there encouraging me to keep going,
Thank you for all your prayers, emails, Facebook Messages, orders and kind words. 
We (our family) and I REALLY Appreciate You!




Thank You


Thank You for your
Love, Prayers, and Understanding,
