Series 13, Creative Space: My How Vacations Have Changed

I remember when our summer vacations included Martha’s Vineyard, a road trip down the Oregon coast or a leisurely stroll through Quebec City.  How things have changed. Welcome to western Wisconsin where we spent our summer vacation working on our dream creative space.  Although different from past  vacations, it was just as gratifying.  Gregg and I still wonder what we got ourselves into but when we squint a little we can see things starting to take shape.  No these aren’t nice shots of ocean views but we love them just the same.

I’m exhausted and have new found respect for my husband’s endless talent and dedication to this project.  Time to get back to my corporate job to do my part!
