Rehoming an old friend...

When I was young I took piano lessons.  Lots of us did.  When I moved out of my parents home I got my piano.  It has followed me for 34 years!   And, no I do not play the piano any more.  My piano lived in our dining room and I REALLY  wanted and antique buffet to refinish (paint) and put in the dining room. Well in the fall of 2016 my mom ran across an amazing buffet ( it needed some repairs, but a real beauty). Yes the piano was still in residence in the dining room and numerous attempts to find her a new home was not going well.  Mom and I drove down to Paducah to Sisters & Friends and loaded up the buffet and some refinishing supplies.... Miss Lillian's Chock Paint and glaze and top coat.   I began the task of repair and painting all while STILL trying to rehome my piano.  The buffet was complete and Garrett and I got it in place. Now the piano lived in the middle of the dining room!  Well, finally the piano found a new home by donating her to Morthland College where she would have new friends to play with!  And I love the "new" buffet!

What if....

 ...things don't always go as planned. Do they ever ? I started this blog back in 2012. Yep, about 5 years ago!  I've posted some, but not regularly, so it's time to get in gear and do this !  Catching up, here's some of the things that have happened along the journey of my life--
  • 2014 - May--My business was displaced due to the neighboring building collapsing.
  • 2014- June --I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
So, we moved our Insurance Agency into another building and then one final move to get settled. All this while I went through chemo for 13 months and 35 radiation treatments and several surgeries. I AM OKAY !  I'm back to normal... working full time and back to doing all the "stuff" I did before.  And anyone who knows me know I love to be busy! What else could I do ? Hmmmmm..... So... I started my very own virtual franchise with Rodan + Fields!   I have been super excited to take on this new venture.  I'll be sharing more on that soon ! This is so true and I do love amazing !!💕
