Open House

The long-awaited other shoe has finally dropped. The job transfer has come through and we finally know where we're headed. There are still some details to work out, but it seems that Kent and I will be moving to Green Bay, Wisconsin sometime this spring.

The time has come to say goodbye to our treasured home. We have lived here nearly twenty years. This wonderful old house is practically a member of the family.

We're hosting an Open House on Sunday, March 1st, from 2 - 4 pm.

Click Here for more information, and a tour of the house.

When the realtor, my mom and I turned the corner into the driveway, all those years ago, it was love at first sight. We hardly got past the back hall and into the kitchen (which was orange and black, for heavens sake!) before I was convinced that this house was the perfect place to raise my four rowdy boys. More than that, though, I felt like the house was choosing us.

We've left our mark on this historic old home, to be sure, a lot of living has gone on here in the past two decades. This house has been filled with love and laughter, even when times were hard. We've celebrated birthdays and graduations. We even had a bride come down the wonderful old staircase, something this mother of boys never expected to see.

It's magic here, it really is. I wonder who the house will choose next.


  1. On no! Happy for what lies ahead for you both but sad to see you leave us! I will have to let my daughter, Dawn, know!!!!

    NO! You can't leave! I drive by your house 3 times a week & say alittle prayer for you. Didn't think God's plan for you included leaving Michigan behind. Stay safe where ever you land. Remember I will always have the first autograph before you got all famous.God bless!

  4. I hope your move goes well Beth. I went to college in Appleton, WI and have an aunt and uncle who live in Green Bay. It is a nice town. I think you're required to eat a lot of cheese though.
