Digging in the dirt...'s good for the soul!
Last Saturday I cleaned up the herb garden...
The gardens were so neglected...with the relocation plans...the gardens were the last thing on my mind...but...
All that has changed! We have come to the FINAL decision that Nick and I will stay in Minneapolis. It's a looonnnggg story. Too many issues started coming up with the house in Wisconsin. And the seller's market here in Minneapolis has hit rock bottom. I didn't want the responsiblity of two places! Needless to say, Nick is happy to finish high school here at Washburn! I'm happy to stay near my aging parents.
It's not an ideal family situation...Paul will make the trip home as often as he can...we will make it work.

So now I can start working on all the ideas for the studio and website that have been put on hold...the shop will remain here at home on Wentworth...and I'm happy to be in my garden!


  1. Laurie,
    Doesn't it feel good to have made some kind of decision!! It seems with everything on hold it's hard to keep going! Keep digging in the dirt to calm you! You're one special lady and I know things will work out for you and your family! Sending good thoughts and positive energy to you!

  2. Tough decision. But, with love and faith, your family can make it work. This economy sure is tough on the housing market. I'm glad you have so many creative endeavors to keep you going in a positive direction. Nothing like an herb garden to find serenity. I will keep you in thoughts and prayers as you guys work out the details!

  3. Hi Cathy and Courtney,
    Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your kind words! Wishing you both a GREAT week!

  4. Final decisions sure bring much relief. Enjoy your time staying put. Who knows what doors will open for you. Sounds like it will make your relationship grow even stronger with hubby away. Wishing the best of everything for you all.

  5. Hi Laurie. Sorry that you and your husband will be apart for awhile. It sounds good for Nick and your fans that you'll be staying here. I was missing you just thinking about you leaving. Good luck with all of it! Warm thoughts. Sharon McKendry


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a note...I love to hear from you!
