How much fun would it be if we tear down the framework of the titles we box ourselves into to explore pleasure and be more playful in our lives?
I am so humbled by my experience at Sun In Bloom. Everyday I receive notes and messages from people who’ve discovered Sun In Bloom and write to share how their experience affected them.
“Sweet Aimee! i just got back from overseas and am craving your amazing #glutenfree chocolate chip cookie sandwich like *crazy* tonight (usually it is your kale salad, sweet lady greens, impossibly delicious raw sauerkraut, etc) … just thought i would let you know, you fuel the desires and dreams of many…..” – Sun In Bloom Guest, Ford
“Hello! This might seem a little odd, but I ate at your restaurant once over the summer, and I fell absolutely, 100% in love with the food — so much so that I almost wanted to skip my plane out of New York that afternoon and just ask to volunteer and help you out for a while ;) (unfortunately, didn’t have the courage to ask!)” – Sun In Bloom Guest, Sarah
Falling into the traps of my self-limiting belief patterns that focus so intensely on the challenge, sacrifice, long hard road comes very easy to me. But, life is just too short to succumb to old belief patterns that eclipse possibility.
Releasing these beliefs is my biggest desire and always a work in progress.
But in just 8 days, we are tearing the house down to rebuild. I am so excited! This is monumental for me and a symbol for letting go of inhibitions and fear to create space for possibility, growth, love and build a new structure for my personal beliefs.
Sun In Bloom – Brunch #50
Saturday & Sunday, December 17 & 18, 2011
10 AM – 5 PM
This weekend is big… it’s our 50th brunch in 2011! I am in awe of what Sun In Bloom has brought to the Park Slope community and all of the support and love that you extend to us. I am deeply grateful for the team we have here who give their all to ensure your experience is amazing. And, I am thankful that everyday you encourage me to continue because of your deep gratitude for the color we add to your life.
My intention was to create an inviting space that offers people the experience of delicious food – food that is created with the intention to nourish and support a healthy body, mind and spirit, and a space you can just BE in.
Although I choose to live a vegan lifestyle because this is what feels right for me, I am not here to judge you and say what works for me is right for you. And what has been most fulfilling in my journey is that 98% of our repeating everyday guests are NOT vegan. Yes, they eat meat and they LOVE Sun In Bloom’s cuisine!
So, I just want to extend the invitation to you to introduce Sun In Bloom to your friends and family who are ravishing meat eating self-proclaimed carnivores… they might discover that veggies, fruit, bean, and whole grains are quite delicious and satisfying and that they can eat meat and veggies too.
The Shitake BLT always wins the “meat-eater” over, as every weekend people tell me it tastes just like bacon. Even mushroom haters love it!
It might be a fun experiment to spend a day where you tear down the framework of titles to explore pleasure, release judgement, and do things that stretch you to be completely playful.
***Just an important reminder… Because renovations will not affect our kitchen, we want to create the opportunity to support you to jumpstart 2012. We will be here to help you make healthy food choices by offering juice, meal plans and orders to-go. You can either pick up food or we can deliver. Norwalk pressed juices are fresh for 3 days and most food can be packaged and is delicious for 3-5 days. Please stop by to pick up an order form and help support us through this transition. You can also email us for a copy. It’s important we know in advance that you will want Sun In Bloom food during these weeks so that we can staff appropriately.
Sending this with so much love, Aimee
