The family home I’ve known since 1962, 26 acres of gentleman farm just outside Minneapolis, Minnesota has been sold and will be developed as a community for many families to enjoy a very special place to live. That means that we’re moving and live is changing in some very big ways.
Some people change their lives one step at a time but we’re doing a clean sweep and starting anew. I’ve retired from my job at Hoigaards, we’re moving out of our home of 32 years on the family property and are not completely certain where we will end up next. We joke about being homeless in June but as I pack up the house and finish moving plants from the gardens it’s actually very unnerving to think of not knowing where and how we will begin this next chapter of our lives.
I may be retired from my regular job but I am still the Queen. It was difficult to schedule classes and programs when I didn’t know for sure when we would be closing on the property and where we would be going. It’s a time of transition but I promise the Queen is not dead.
In the meantime Nordic Walking classes and groups continue to pop up all over the place. I’ve done a good job recruiting and training all those princesses out there and I’m happy to say they’re doing a good job. Here’s what I know about classes and programs in the metro area. I’ll do my best to get them on the calendar also.
