Nap time: my definition: a child resting for a period of time during the mid-day hours, giving he/she (of course, only he’s at our home) some time to “recharge” the battery, if you will. While Mother’s simply watch soap operas, have a bubble bath, needlepoint or read magazine articles on “How to manage children and schedules of this generation” to recharge our batteries. I don’t remember doing this?!? Where did the time go? There is very little “naptime” going on at our home these days, Jake is 13, Jon is 9, Jack is 7, and Jens will be 4 this December. They are great boys and I truly delight in being their mother and a wife to Jay. Life could not be better.
Maplelag has been a busy place and we are wrapped up in the midst of it all. The boys have their areas in which they like to help and their talents are able to shine. The store is an outlet for me to design and display, I enjoy this very much. Each year, I do new things which keeps our guests as well as our family outfitted in new attire. I am currently working on the 2007 mug, I wait until I am hit with a lighting idea and run to the company with it to see if my thoughts are do-able. Sometimes they tell me, “can’t do that” but do their best to get me what I envisioned. The mug is different each year therefore proving that Maplelag is not “cookie cutter”. The Maplelag store carries, chapstick-on-a-rope for the skier, thermal mugs, and bumper stickers. We also have local harvested honey, maple syrup and coffee by Muskrat Coffee. I also have some jewelry made by local artists, guests of Maplelag, and even a kitchen staff gal, each piece is a one-of-a-kind. And now, for the drum roll……………………Yes, it is true, this holiday season we will have our first Maplelag cookbook for all to enjoy!! It has been a long time in the making but we hope you think it was well worth the wait and find it unique! Another area of Maplelag which consumes much of my time is wedding planning! I never would have guessed I would get to plan so many weddings! Maplelag truly receives the “cream of the crop” as far as guests and this goes for our wedding guests, as well. We have had great brides and grooms to work with and their families become a part of ours, after spending such a special weekend with us. We choose to offer a “wedding weekend” which provides the bride and groom, along with many of their family and friends an unforgettable reunion with a wedding bonus. We have had some long time, faithful, Maplelag guests as well as brand new guests choose Maplelag. So, if you are thinking of ‘tying the knot’ and looking for somewhere unique and out of the ordinary, consider Maplelag as your stress-free destination wedding.
