    Jeremiah James Korfe – Making it “Work”

      Past Work It was a beautiful August evening for a concert overlooking the picturesque Spirit Lake. And since Menahga, Minnesota is my mom’s hometown, I couldn’t have been more excited that I was getting a front row seat for this event. Sunny and 80 degrees with a light breeze, made for the perfect storm, when combined with the sunset overlooking the lake and the crazy awesome musical talent onstage. Jeremiah James Korfe delivered what audience members deemed the best concert in the 2-year concert series.

    Planning a Meet & Greet With Sweet Home Alabama’s Paige Duke and Jeremiah James Korfe

It was a river that was crystal clear at times, and murky at others. The only thing I could count on, was that I would have to paddle fast and furious to keep my head above water.So Many Venues, So Little TimeThe first item on my…

To spend time with each other, Paige…

    The Real Reality of Falling in Love on “Sweet Home Alabama” Part 4

    Contemplating Jeremiah was uneasy that the love of his life was on a date with a guy he had come to respect and love like a brother. He knew Bubba would be awesome for any woman. He and Bubba were cut from the same cloth, one from the North and one from the South. Bubba had the last date before the Finale and Jeremiah had no idea how it went. The guys were separated after elimination night, so there was no opportunity to talk. As he watched the sunset, he thought of Paige. He hoped if she watched it too, she would be thinking of him. When thinking about Paige…

    The Interview Prep Sleep was not my friend Sunday night. I would be interviewing Paige Duke and Jeremiah James Korfe in the morning and my brain was unwilling to rest. I went over the interview questions in my mind, carefully rearranging the words. It was important for me to convey Paige and Jeremiah’s experience of falling in love in the most unlikely of circumstances, a reality TV dating show. It was not to be taken lightly and I knew I only had 30 minutes to get it right. Writing the Blog Where do I begin? Paige and Jeremiah are too sweet and amazing for mere words. Because it’s so much more than just words…it’s in the…
