Another Delivery This Morning!

18/06/13 10:59 AM

I couldn’t wait until the end of the day to write about this delivery!

This morning at 9am, we had a visit from the Fed Ex man!


He brought us a package addresses to

Brett, Michelle and Hurley!

Inside we discovered a wonderful book from Deborah in California! 

The book, “Dawn’s Early Light” is a romantic novel about a woman who dresses as a man in order to follow her man to war. Set during the Revolutionary War, this is the first in a series that works its way through to World War II.

But what made it even more special was a special treat just for Hurley!


Hurley will be coming to the plantation on Friday this week. He will be staying behind with me because he has a photo shoot coming up June 25th with a bride that will be staying at the plantation in July.

Don’t forget Saturday, June 22nd at 10am


We will be receiving our landscaping by flatbed truck!

If you can volunteer, we would welcome you to come and help us make Belle Grove Plantation beautiful again!

Hurley will be joining us!


Please bring the following if you have them:

Work Gloves



Plastic Rain Barrel if it is empty

Pickup Truck to help move items and water

Lawn Chair

Bag Lunch

We will have ice cold water on hand for everyone!

We look forward to seeing you at the plantation!!

    What time are you going to start planting on Saturday? If I can get a friend to come with me we just might make the drive from Chesapeake. We both love to garden. Here are a few pictures of my garden this year. God has truly given us some beautiful weather for growing.

    I’ll have to see if I have any books for ya, would you rather them look old to fit the character of the home? I’m always picking up book from yard sales and thrift shops.

  20. Old or new, as long as they are hard backs they should be fine. Thank you!
