While the past week or so has been all consuming, Brett has kept us on track as far as Belle Grove. He has truly been my rock and really picked up the slack. He has gotten the preliminary site plan and it was submitted to the Zoning Director on Wednesday, November 14th. Since then we have already received several items we are going to have to either correct or add to the plan in order for it to be approved. Brett is work with the surveyor to make these corrections and will be making an appointment to meet with the Zoning Director to discuss some of the others. We are hoping to be able to get through this process quickly so we can move to the next step, landscaping and filling the house. Once those are completed we can open for business. Our hope is to open, even if it is a soft opening on March 16th, James Madison’s Birthday.
Today, I will be working on our wedding information. We have two brides to be that are interested in having their weddings with us during 2013. I will be driving up to Belle Grove tomorrow to meet with them. One bride is interested in doing her reception with us in April and the other was interested in the whole event in June. Of course all of this will be contingent on us getting the zoning approval and opened in time.
Either way, I can’t wait to get back to Belle Grove tomorrow. I have missed seeing it and being there. It will be a breath of fresh air and will help me get back to somewhat normal.
Brett and I also want to thank all of you again for all your support, love, thoughts, hugs and prayers during the last week. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful readers!
Thank you so much!
Now onward and upward!
