UPDATES 2007
AUGUST 2007

A tragic accident happened today in my current home city of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The outside temperature was in the high 90s with very high humidity.  I traveled to St. Paul to pick up the flowers for the next weekends weddings around 2:00 in the afternoon.  At approximately 6:05 PM  as I was watching the news while in the workshop a breaking news flash came over the TV station I was watching.  The I-35W bridge in Minneapolis where I had been earlier had just collapsed. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families.

JULY 2007

Hard to believe that summer is half over.  We just spent an wonderful week up at "Camp Urich", Heather's (Louisa von Trapp) secret hideaway in Canada. 

      

We hauled the jet skis to the lake from Minnesota and couldn't keep the girls out of the water once we arrived.  As for me, much needed R&R was what I needed...and got after a fabulous spring/summer wedding season.  Beautiful sunsets every evening, smores and wine by the campfire every night. 

 
It still amazes me how much my Kate and Heather's Alli look so much alike.  They get along so well (better than sisters!) and have so much fun together. Kate calls Alli her little "Mini-Me". 

 

My husband, Rick was the designated "GrillMaster" and boy did he do a superb job!  It was so tough to leave this little piece of paradise, but we so look forward to future visits.
