Monterey Herald

Simply courageous

Thank you to Mike Hale and The Monterey Herald for a lovely feature about our opening of Stationæry.  It is humbling and wonderful to have the support of our local community as we carry on with this special project.  Those of you who know me well, know that I am a person of few emotions.  But seeing Mike's headline, "Simply courageous", honestly brought me to tears.  We've been so "in" the project and I hadn't really taken a moment yet to reflect on the fact that WE ARE ACTUALLY DOING THIS.  The doors are open, everything is flowing so naturally, and we are having a blast!  Though, I do believe it is necessary for us to pause a moment and reflect on the excitement and acknowledge how blessed we are to be the stewards of Stationæry.  

We have an amazing team, including Chef Amalia Scatena, helping to make each day possible.  And beyond our team inside Stationæry, we have friends and family supporting us in big and small ways - we are so grateful.  

Alissa (and Anthony too)
