Some More Progress

02/07/12 10:20 PM

Okay, please sit down before you read this. I don’t want you to faint. Yes, the attorney has finally finished with the contract! I got word today that we should get it tomorrow. (fingers crossed) But I have to say, I will believe it when I see it!

Summer Kitchen Door

We have also added a new video to our Indiegogo site! Please take a moment to check it out! Thank you to everyone that has contributed to our fund. You know the banks aren’t loaning to new startup businesses and definitely not for projects like the one we need for the outbuildings. They are in such bad shape and we are in desperate need for help to save them.

Don’t forget to claim your perks! We have the Free Weekend Giveaway. PLUS!! For those who live too far from us to come and stay, we are going to be adding some new perks just for you! I will be adding them tomorrow night so don’t forget to check them out!! (Thank you to my Aussie blog friend that pointed that out)

Cookie Monster – Seasame Street

Do you love cookies or have a favorite cookie recipe? Be on the lookout for a fun contest we are going to open soon!!


Brett and I and even Hurley really appreciate your support and encouraging words! This has been a great journey and we are so glad to have you come along!

    Great idea to include something for people who can’t visit or travel. Maybe an option could also include them being able to give it to someone who can?

  6. Yes, that can been an option. We don’t mind transfering it or gifting it to someone else.

    Good luck with the contract and everything else!

  12. Thank you! We are glad this contract part is almost done. We hope that we will be able to raise at least enough to restore one of the buildings before we lose it. The Smokehouse is on its last leg with one wall missing and just the frame holding it up.

    So glad to hear about this endeavor! I have always been a particular fan of James Madison.

  23. Thank you for the encouragement. We sort of feel like James Madison is under-appreciated, so we’re glad to help share the story of his works.

  24. Attorney’s, contracts, you’re thinking correctly to believe it when you see it. 🙂

  25. We’re eager, but also realize some things take time. Thank you for your encouragement & support.

  26. Hope it comes through, on time and correctly!

  27. Yes!! Thank you for the encouragement!
