Return To Hill's Grills

Today is the day that Hill's Grills opens and I couldn't be more excited. I'm here in the mid-morning enjoying a delicious breakfast sandwich. Watching Hillary move around the shop is a fantastic thing to see. You can tell she is in her element and that her staff is prepared. Hillary has four ladies working with her and each of them brings a warmth to the new restaurant. I'm excited to see how the shop will evolve and adapt to its environment. The color is bright and cheery, and the atmosphere is light and fun. As an added benefit there is a wide variety of assorted teas available for purchase aimed toward those that want to take a piece of the shop home. It's great watching the other customers come and go as the door is constantly opening and closing and the other thing I especially like is watching as people take the first satisfying bites of their food. I know that sounds exceptionally creepy but I want to know a persons genuine reaction to the food (people have a love/hate relationship when I try new recipes). I'm just happy to see a friend of mine finally realizing her dream, ever since I have known Hillary, she has been on a mission to open her own business. I remember when it was in its relative infancy when Hillary and I met, so to see it now makes me happy.
