Welcomed Home to a Winter Wonderland


Just got back from my business and pleasure trip to North Carolina yesterday and woke up this morning to a flurry of snow and a call that church was canceled. So we're looking forward to a day of hot cocoa, crafting, and playing in the snow.

This week in NC we got a good start on the new design for "The Mill"--the old textile mill my dad's turning into a YMCA. I picked out the paint, bought 48 yards of great fabrics, made a trip to an architectural salvage warehouse for old doors to paint on.



Here's the Restore Warehouse where I picked out these old doors and picket fence pieces.

Some finished signs

ANNND Hudson and I had great time with family and enjoyed playing outside in 78 degree weather. I'd say it was a pretty productive trip!


Playing catch with Grandma Lisa....from shorts to snow boots in just a 2-hour plane ride.


What happens when Hudson and PopPop have to spend hours in a fabric store.



"See Ya Soon" kisses in the airport.

Yesterday, while we were en route to the airport, volunteers were putting on the first coat of paint. Hopefully in a couple weeks, after The Mill opens in January, you and I will get to see pictures of the finished product : )
