Kindred Spirits



On Friday my very good friend called and said, "Let's go to the Celestial Education Conference."  We had to spend six hours consulting with our families, switching up schedules and talking ourselves into leaving at 4:30 AM so we could be there in time.  Finally a little before 10 PM we decided that we were going to go.  I was excited.  I think that I was most excited to see my blogging friends.  Since it was so late at night I couldn't call them and tell them we were coming.  We'd just have to surprise them and hope they were there.

They were there! So fun.  While there I had some great thoughts and impressions while I listened to the first speaker.  After our meeting we were able to go out to lunch.  We had some great discussions! I'm so glad I was able to go.

On the front row was  Jennifer and Misty aka Misfit Cygnet.
The back row is Lara aka Lazy Organizer, me, Stephanie aka Joyful Saint, Rachel aka Free N' Equal on Misfit Cygnet and Jennifer from Celestial Education In the Home.

I was disappointed to not be able to spend some more time with Karen from The Tale of Our Quest but I'll catch up with her another time.

It was very nice to meet so many others of you out there who read my blog!  Thank you for your kind words and encouragement.  I am grateful  to know that my blog as been inspirational to you. 

It was soul enriching to be around so many wonderful women.  Thank you all.

I'm so glad to have met you and the other bloggers. I wish I could have been a part of your lunch conversations. I'm sure there was much learning and sharing that took place. Thanks for being so gracious and so real. I hope another happy coincidence is in the near future.

How wonderful for you and them (I read from all the same writers too). Just this past week I recieved my copy of Celestial Education and am on the second viewing (this time with my hubbie). What a blessing you all had to be able to attend the conference! Alas, I am too far away here in Alaska, sigh. Someday maybe.

I'm so glad you remembered to take a picture. It was a fabulous time and so fun to visit with everyone!

Is that a Kneader's? I best not tell Mrs. Smith, or she may be more disappointed having missed out. Kneader's is high on the "approved" list this pregnancy. ;)

I was there too! I should have come over to say hello to all of you kindred spirits. I don't know why I didn't. I suppose it was becasue I was ditching part of my family reunion to be there,and felt I'd better leave as soon as it was over. And I think once I said "hi" I would've wanted to stay and talk and talk.

It was fun to see all of you in person though, even if I didn't have a chance to say hi. I was surprized to see you there. I guess great minds think alike. :)
