When I look at the last four years of my life, I feel amazed at all the stuff I have managed to cram into 1,460 days: a full time job, a blog I'm super proud of, plenty of cooking demonstrations and classes, family visits, an online business, a market stall, a bricks and mortar shop, a couple of TV segments and very slowly but surely the writing of my first cookery book... how did I manage all that? I'm not entirely sure. We live a day at a time and we try our best to live it well.... some days give us a great sense of accomplishment, others we're just happy to get through... it's all about moving, advancing, keeping momentum and learning in the process.
As I reflect today on the year just gone, I cannot believe that Picado Mexican is going to be a year old next week! This time last year we were preocuppied with shop fit outs and today it's been all about the phasing out of My Mexican Shop and the cementing of Picado. We are so excited to have finaly merged our online home of 4 years (www.mymexicanshop.ie) together with our bricks and mortar shop, Picado Mexican!
These four years of hard work have helped us define who we are and where we want to go... they have given us confidence, and defined our identity. That identity has now been imprinted in our online presence too. Hop in and take a look. I hope you all like it as much as we do.
We couldn't have done any of this without the help and encouragment of our friends at Ovo, our digital design agency. We have worked with these guys for a number of years now and their professionalism and commitment has been key to the success of Picado Mexican. They are an absolute joy to work with and we feel proud to count them amongst friends now. Jonathan, Stephanie, Phillip and everybody at Ovo, thank you guys, we LOVE the new site!
To you, my readers and to all our customers, thank you. We couldn't do any of this without you.
