Laura's Corner

I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.

At the ripe young age of 25, I was a married woman, mother of two beautiful little girls.  Because of alcoholism within my family, my father to be exact, I had attended a few years of Al-Anon and had learned to set boundaries and become stronger.  Needless to say, after receiving numerous calls from my sisters regarding the state of my father's physical, emotional and mental health, my husband and I took a 30 day leave of absence via the U.S. Army and drove home with our daughters.

Ivy on 14th!!

I'm heading off the beaten path here to tell everyone about a place I've recently discovered.  While walking around by Marquette Campus recently, I came across a new construction site.  A great majority of you know that I'm inquisitive so yes, I took a look around.  I noticed a huge sign on the top of the building which mentioned The Ivy on Fourteenth.  I went to the website and it pointed me to their office at 749 N 17th Street. 

What I found out was exciting.  The first floor will be retail, a gym, computer lab, coffee bar, etc.  Floors two thru six are luxury apartments.  They will include a washer and dryer in each unit, are fully furnished and will have hardwood floors and granite countertops.  On top of all of that, there will be a heated garage for anyone needing a parking space. Talk about something to look forward to!
