I must admit I am absolutely terrrified. We closed our store October 31st. It was a hard day for everyone but we were able to share many hugs and tears with our wonderful customers.
WHAT HAVE I DONE?
I am so scared.... I hope and pray that it all works out and that we get the permits and are able to do all the things the city needs us to so we can build our fabulous BRAND NEW store and even a little cafe on the Guide Meridian in Bellingham.
How did we end up in Bellingham? We rented here in Mill Creek. We wanted to buy the property we sit on or another close by but nothing worked out so we kept looking and after a year with Joel Johnson the BEST real estate agent and about 100 different properties, we finaly found a gem in Bellingham. Bellingham with it's beautiful city, places to take great hikes, water to canoe and Kayak in and gardens to grow. It is the perfect place for My Garden 2.
We did fall in love with 6 other places along the way. One right down the street on Bothell Everett Highway but it turned out it was almost all wetland even though it looked like a dessert. There was another on highway 9 that was gorgeous but turns our had a major septic problem. Time and time again I would fall in love and start planning My Garden 2 and then find out it was doomed.
We are working with a great architect named Sean from Haven Design. It is all very exciting but scary too.
I will be sharing everything with you as we go from My Garden Mill Creek to My Garden Bellingham! All I can tell you is I am excited but I have a feeling it's going to be a bumpy ride!
Keep your fingers crossed!
