The most beautiful part of life is the unpredictability of what comes next. It's a wild mix of fear and excitement of the unknown that makes each and everyday a blessing. It is the surprise that at any moment one thing can change and take your life in a new direction. 

In late July, Ken was recruited by a company he has always admired to lead a team and take the company down a path they have not yet explored. This is a company rich in American heritage and an icon to the fashion industry. A company who is confident in who they are while still pushing the boundaries to be innovative in fashion-forward design and craftsmanship. This is a Made-in-America company and one that Ken truly connects with.

Ken's new company is headquartered in Minnesota, which means the first of September, Ken and I will be moving to the city of Minneapolis to begin the next chapter of our lives together. We are both thrilled to move to a new state and explore a new city that we have heard the most amazing things about.

Our lives have quickly gone from peaceful and somewhat predictable, to hectic, frantic, and stressful. We have less than a month to sell the home we love in East Grand Rapids and purchase a home in a city we have never been. We will be leaving behind a very close group of friends that we have had for years which breaks my heart.

Regardless of how stressful this next month will be, I am so proud of Ken and his hard work, dedication, creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, leadership and ability to grow in every company he has ever worked in. He is brilliant, charming and unbelievably talented. Love you, Ken - Congratulations!
