I’ve owned my business here, Priscilla’s Coffee, for more than 32 years. What I love most about the community is the people, and how it feels like a combination of small town and suburb, with a flourish of city style.
I’m handling the current situation with lots of praying! We aren’t sitting at home — many people are having us send coffee around the city, state and nation. We are also trying to take this as an opportunity to work on some things that are hard to do in our normal business environment; for example, my husband, Mark, has been painting our bathroom. The next thing we plan to do is to sand and refinish our countertops. The biggest challenge has been trying not to look too far into the future. The way we handle it is by coming home at night and having our family dinners. It reminds you of what is important. And we have a very bright, level-headed son who has a knack for putting everything into perspective. We’re also staying connected with the community by keeping our doors open, answering emails and incessant Instagram posts!
We are all in this together. Every day, we are grateful for our Priscilla’s friends and neighbors. We look forward to moving through all of this and providing normalcy and great coffee for our community again!
