Minnesota patiently waits for winters arrival. Folks stock up their pantries, hook up the plows, line their properties with countless cords of wood. Michael Mcgillis saw the muted countryside as they anxiously wait and decided to deliver a dose of happiness. It is called Wake. He used shades of purple painted on the inside ends of these stacked logs. Its was 95 foot stretch of firewood. Now, it’s a smile making tunnel of cheer.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
