After five plus years of singledom, Deb got serious with this guy, Bix Skahill. Deb and Bix met during an M.F.A. Creative Writing program in Maine years ago. They reconnected in the spring of 2015 at a writing conference. True love ensued.
Deb's other great love, son, Lincoln, is graduating from high school this spring. Freed from full-time Mom duties, she has been convinced, by Bix, to move to St. Paul, Minnesota after lavender season this year.* Yes, yes....the snow bird is flying the wrong direction! Bix is a writer and filmmaker and has started a small publishing company recently. Deb is looking forward to having more time for her writing. In fact, she is in the process of writing a memoir about the journey beginning in 2002, starting and growing the successful lavender farm business with her mother, Edie. The story meanders through the ups and downs along the way....right up to Bix. She will keep you posted on a publishing date.
*Don't fret though....lavender season will live on. Deb will return to the farm to help host the lavender season every year. What will change is that as of early May, there will no longer be sales of our products through the website. So if you aren't going to make the season you might want to stock up now. Also, our presence at Messick's Farm Market will be enhanced and you will be able to find most of your favorite products there anytime they are open. AND, Deb will be returning quarterly (say late September, mid-December and March) and will be opening up the shop for a week at a time so those of you who enjoy checking out the shop can drop over. She will give you plenty of head's up through newsletters, the facebook page and the web-site.
