Elle and I just spent our last full day in Charlotte. Our boss Deborah came out to pass out some samples and spend quality time with her 2 favorite east coast bella girls!
The first event was a hot one (I believe the heat wave began this morning) but it was a sunny morning and a perfect one for cool treats. Deborah’s family came out and enjoyed some gelato and sorbet at one of our tables. Her son Owen was our Ciao Bella Superman for the morning and daughter Catherine was our future Bella Girl. At lunch Deborah, Elle and I laid a blanket out in the truck and had ourselves a Ciao Bella style picnic!
The second event quickly turned into the biggest storm the tour has had yet! The ferocious winds and heavy rains forced us to close our side door for the first time. The three of us were held up in our little truck while we took turns at the little serving window. A little boy was helping his mother carry an umbrella when his Ciao Bella excitement overtook him and he nearly pulled his mother over into the rain in order to get to the truck as fast as possible! Oh and Elle got hit in the eye by a grasshopper, yep, that really happened.
Overall a great day and it was fun to have another person to talk to and help us out.. thanks Deborah, we had fun! We hope to have you at more events!
