Changing Of The Guards

This year has been full of wonders and changes for my husband and me!  For the last 15 years, we have owned and operated a wedding venue called The Plantation House in Austin, TX.  But as of January 1st, my oldest daughter, Joanna King and husband, Tanner King have purchased this amazing and rewarding venture.  We couldn’t be happier for them and so excited that they are 2nd generation owners!

As this change was unfolding…..I had to take a step back to evaluate my purpose in life.  What was I good at?  Where were my strengths? What was my passion? What made me happiest?…and most of all where could I be of help to Joanna and Tanner.  My son, Tucker has always said that I would be like Brett Favre, and could never retire from this business.  I was beginning to think the same, but then I realized that when my husband and I started this business, I was more like a sister to my brides and grooms.  Now I am more like a mother…..and if I ever become a grandmother to them…then I better hang it up….please:)  But I truly believe that I still have some wonderful things to give to this business…so here I am….with Luanna Clara Design.
