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
