โ˜๐ŸปIf it weren't for the folks growing the goods for my pies, the vendors that continue to help one another and ultimately the customers that support my idea that fresh baked pies are best, simply put-- I wouldn't be in business. #connection #marketscenes

This is the story of me!
This very sign that once hung in my office where I was employed as a school counsellor for years working alongside at-risk children, youth and their families in Alberta. And now, this sign hangs in the pie.ology kitchen. In the end, it became a mantra for my own life. This is the story of moving to Thunder Bay and not finding any work in my field. The story of finally getting a job at the Salvation Army on Red River Road, and then a second job with a local agency, but saying no to both minimum wage and later, unstable contract positions with no benefits. This is the story of drawing upon all my life experiences, some joyful and some not so joyful to create a business that I believed could be successful to make ends meet. Because it's never just been about the pies. There are so many magic ingredients in pie.ology โœจ
This is the story of practicing practicing practicing a recipe. Because, no one taught me the art of pie. This is the story of growth, of change, of self preservation. Of deep sadness, of joy, of recognizing when something isn't working, of celebrating all that is. As any person working in the food industry knows, the struggle IS real. We all have a story of how and why we started and this is mine. Yesterday it was my great honour to be the Keynote Speaker at @confederationcollege as I presented my story to 100 incredible youth from across Ontario. I can only hope that my words sparked a fire in their hearts as I delivered my message that ***YES, anything is possible and you CAN choose your own path*** ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Standing side by side with my mother and my best friend of 20 years, teaching them how to make hand pies >>-โ™ฅ๏ธŽ-> Surprised my Grandpa with a fresh outta-the-oven batch -- he is 94, unable to fly, unable to see the Market or taste the pies. He is a man of few words but said, "melt in your mouth" then ate another and pretty much my heart soared. #sidebyside #calgary #memoriesmade #family #mymothershands #pie #friendship #rollingwithsamreen #handpiesmadewithheart

We did it!!! ๐ŸŽ‰ We made it to the end of the Home + Garden Show with hand pies for all after 3 days and I'm so proud of my crew and how far this business has come! The new giant Market oven "OVELYN" kept up! She bakes 60 hand pies in 25 mins!!! (Remember my toaster oven days, guys??) To everyone who commented that I looked so happy and relaxed... thank you!! I truly was and we had a friggin blast! #thankyoueveryone #handpies #meatpies #pie #springhomeandgardenshow #spring #jarpies #vegan #fresh #tbay #thunderbay #thunderbaycountrymarket #tbaysmallbiz #beststaff #celebrate
