Play a Silly Game With Me, Join the Telling Life Stories and Memoir Circle, the Rose Courier



Hello and welcome to the Focused on Story Blog. I'm taking some time to play this week--as you can see I had a lot of fun picking flowers from our yard and making a bouquet. In case you didn't know, my husband GT, Gardener Ted, and I owned and operated a flower shop, greenhouses and garden center for 19+ years. In fact, I am writing my memoir about that first year we moved from our safe and secure home in Central Illinois to a small town in West Michigan with our baby girl, Sara. Why anyone would sell their business to a young couple who had no floral shop experience and no business experience still makes me scratch my head. But they did! 

I am taking a break from writing the memoir, Arranging a Dream. Yes, I need one so I can think straight to edit and revise it. BWL Publishing will release the book in January 2021. Sounds like a long ways away, doesn't it? But so much to do before January!
Arranging a Dream: A Memoir

Release in January 2021

I took a break last week from my FB group, Telling Your Life Story and Memoirs Circle, so I'm fired up this week to get back to it with the gang. If you have an interest in telling your life story or ever wonder why you should, please click here to join us.

  4. That sounds like a wonderful decision. What a nice way to raise a child, surrounded by beautiful flowers and trees. A dear friend ran a greenhouse near us for years, and sometimes during busy season I'd help out. We learned a lot of stuff together. They retired last year.
