Having children with back-to-back birthdays is exhausting! And expensive! But having them both home for their birthdays is priceless.
Happy 18th birthday to Casey Pitcher, who celebrated on March 24, and happy 20th birthday to Quinn Pitcher, whose birthday was on March 16. Quinn was home from college for his birthday and spring break, so we were able to celebrate together.

Evan Woschnik of Eastport and his fiancée, Teri, began a company a few years ago out on the West Coast. They named their business All Jarred Up. It began as an experiment on the e-marketplace website Etsy and quickly grew into a thriving dessert company.
They began by filling a niche market specializing in travel-sized pies, cookies and specialty sauces that are shipped directly to your doorstep. They fit all of their tasty treats into reusable mason jars, making sure to include helpful hints on recycling the jars for future uses. Each order is baked-to-order and shipped on the same day to maintain the fresh-from-the-oven taste.
Evan and Teri are 100-percent committed to using as many natural, organic and locally-sourced ingredients as possible. They have since expanded their operation to include full-sized pies, cakes, brownies and loads of other delicious goodies. They are always working on new products for their customers to enjoy and constantly striving to provide people with delicious and preservative-free goodies.
Recently, Evan and Teri moved to Portland, Oregon, where they plan on opening a food cart. To read more about their endeavor, and to possibly help them start this new phase of their business, visit www.AllJarredUp.com. Evan is the son of Cindy and Wally Woschnik of Eastport. Best of luck to them!
