Plus, the people are pretty great, if I do say so myself.

- Promoting Eat Boutique content by sharing it with folks who may find it interesting and valuable
- Preparing our newsletters, cropping and editing photography, and writing jazzy snippets as needed
- Spreading the handmade food philosophy and sharing recipes and photos via our Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook accounts
