My Big News.....

God willing the lodge sells , keep praying!
We have been planning for a couple of years now to go as a
family to Denmark, Norway and Sweden!
To celebrate my parents 50th but they want to wait
till the lodge has sold so we don't have to schedule
around the season.

So back to my news, this last week I had a thought
of what my life would be like without the store.
this thought grew and grew and I have decided
to close just for a few years and relocate the business.

My little store started 9 years ago and while I have so
enjoyed every minute of it,
visiting with the lovely people of my community
and decorating my way around the store and back.

I can picture my new location, now maybe not this grand
but just as lovely!

So with some of my new free time
I'm going to learn how to grow plants and garden
there maybe some disastrous posts through
this growth area but between
Madelief and Diane
I hope they can help me!

Maybe learn how to sew or Crochet
Right now I'm unteachable!

So while my little store has filled me up with such Joy
and has been a success!
I'm going to drink more coffee,
spend more time with my kids
God Willing go on a trip
the Sky's the limit!

But for starters
we are going to connect the store and the house
which will give us much needed space.
A family room so after I have had my fill
and they start fighting I have a place to send them!

I can already picture it decorated!

I'm so excited......

  9. Hi Heidi,

    I am so happy for you! Now I understand more clearly. You will not miss it as much as I thought, because you will have other 'fun' things in return. I will gladly advice you with your garden, but I am not sure if I will be a great help :-). It must be fun to connect the store to the house and redecorate it! Why do you live in Alaska???? If you lived nearby I could come over and help you!

    Lieve groet & happy day!
