Zeroing issue

So I have this logo that I want to cut out and fill with epoxy. My idea is to design the logo and save all the toolpaths. I first cut out the background and fill it with epoxy. After a couple days I want to set it back up into the CNC and cut out the lettering in the epoxy. But I am having a problem trying to reload the exact xy values as the first time. I dont know if the CNC can even do this but if anyone has any idea how i can go about doing this or even tell me if its even possible that would be great.

The machine should save the offsets and reuse them if you have homing switches.

If not, you could machine a pocket which just admits the endmill, set that to be zero, then start up the machine with the endmill in said pocket.

The pocket for zeroing worked perfectly. Thank you so much for the idea.
