Just what does a dead, mega wealthy Industrialist have to do with a midwestern woman from a different era?  Well, I think Industrialist, Pierre DuPont and I would have been dear friends if it weren't for some small pesky issues such as: First, he died before I was born...

 What a whirlwind weekend it was for all of us interested in all things 'bridal'!  I attended the bridal show at the Alliant Center to catch up on all the newest trends, and forge some great new relationships with other businesses I know we will work with in the coming...

Imagine my excitement to witness a sea of roses and boxwood being off loaded from a semi truck next to the barn!   What an amazing site!   Then the next thought that hit me was sobering.  Gulp.  I need to get all of these planted and really fast...

If we can go on hyper speed thru many years of personal history – my folks are gone now but my passion for the old farm never wavered. I grew up there and intimately knew its hills and valleys. I knew where to find the sweetest berries that grew wild. Still to this day...

I never would have believed (in a million years) that we would spend a full year restoring an old 1870 barn on a farm on which I grew up. Good thing for high energy, a twisted sense of humor and the invention of dumpsters. Better yet, good thing for patient husbands wh...
