Today is filled with so many emotions. The past couple of months have surely been a whirlwind with bringing back our little family bakery, to today as the barn renovations begin. I came back from the gym and just walked around the barn, looking at all of the little details. It is truly amazing that this barn is still standing since it was built in the early 1800's. I wish the walls could share all of the history with us. We actually have a piece of old barn wood in our bedroom that has the date on it 98', with a bunch of initials carved in. It must be 1898, because if it was 1998 it would have been my brother and I.
I have so many memories of playing in the barn as a child. All the laughter, the exploration of all of the junk in there always hoping to find a hidden treasure. I cannot tell you how many times I climbed up this ladder as a child when we were playing hide-n-seek or just chasing kittens in the barn.
Chris and I have been asking ourselves over the past couple of weeks, are we crazy for doing all of this? But somehow I keep hearing Gods voice of peace and comfort to keep taking that next step. So today, its official, we have our permit and the renovation begins. I cannot wait to watch the transformation and see how Chris our Amish friend, will work throughout this project. His timeline is 4-6 weeks, WOW!!!
We hope you will join us in our journey of the transformation of The Barn. Our hope is it will be ready by the Spring of 2017 for Weddings and Special Events. Be sure to join us for our Blog updates and let your friends know to join too. We will be hosting a contest in the very near future to win a "Free" Wedding at The Barn!
