words to live by

"Well behaved women seldom make history."

We met when he hired me to work on his small organic farm, we got to know each other, fell in love and got married.

A year or so later, we had a dream to start revitalizing the downtown area of the little town, purchased a building, renovated it into a coffee shop and photography studio and started drawing people in.

A year or so after that, we purchased another building, renovated the front, like the other one, decorated it to be an elegant and classy venue and called it The 1206.  This building is located at 1206 Main Ave. in Crete, NE and it's where YOU will make memories.

One day a few years ago I met a farmer who lived outside of the little town of Crete. . .

why i am here

My Story

There is nothing better in my life than using my creative skills to make beautiful things.  It's what I've done with our buildings and it's what I would like to do with you.  

I LOVE to create.  Whether it's photos, buildings or memories, creating is my passion.
