Hello everyone!! I am so excited to be back. Things have been a little crazy around here for the past 5 years since we opened a boot and western store in our town of Albert Lea. I truly didn't know some days if I was coming or going but we made the decision to close the store the middle of December 2017 and so now I can spend more time here with all of you!! I am very happy and excited about this and having more time to spend with my family and build relationships again with my friends. I hope they have not given up on me!!
Winter here has been very cold with minimal snow. My son has not been very impressed with the amount of snow as he waits all year to finally be able to ride his snowmobile and enjoy the winter! Hopefully more will still come and we will get the chance to ride again around our area. We were able to fit in about 3 days of riding and then it warmed up a little and it melted off the fields and was dangerously low in the ditches so we put the sleds back on the trailer and are waiting for the next chance!
I got a granddaughter since the last time that I talked to all of you. Her name is Ava and she was born in July of last year. Blessings truly do come in small packages!! Being a grandma is the best most rewarding thing in the world. I absolutely am taking advantage of having more time so that I can be with her!
Everyday is a Gift!!
