You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true.

Everything starts with an idea.

I remember the day a new manager arrived at the Oregon Garden and walked through the Children’s Garden. His immediate vision was to create a Hobbit Garden in this grassy area, and over three years we watched it take shape.


A favorite Arizona winery of ours has become a bit of a home away from home. The owners had the home first, and then decided what a great place it would be to begin a new local business. They studied viticulture, began slowly, and Keeling Shaffer went global a year ago.

All because of a dream.

People? Always bloom where they are planted.


Homes? Where we hang our hearts, our souls, and our lives. I loved this old church that became a home in Tuscany.

Do you have something that was once a wish, or an idea?

Where and how did it grow?

For some it is a career, others family. For some growth from within is paramount.

Whatever your dreams, I hope you find your way to bring them to life.
