#2,392 The Burks.
by Erin Napier
After the most wonderfully lazy rainy day at home, we made a couple of new friends over dinner. Cory and Caroline Burks live an hour away, but she’s from here and they’re in the early stages of planning the very cool business they’ll be opening in downtown Laurel next spring.
I just can’t quite explain what it means to me to see more people investing in making our town even better. We wished and hoped for this for so many years… And now it’s happening all at once. What a dream.
The rain is still tap tap tapping on my bedroom window and my eyes are feeling heavy. Tomorrow, bright and early, we begin filming block 2 with 4 houses on deck during the most brutally hot months of the year. Wish us luck!
