Kate Wicker and her cutie patootie, Thomas
Danielle Bean was as lovely as ever. And her shoes? Incomparable (and terrifyingly high).
Lisa Schmidt and baby Jude. Lisa gained my respect as someone who can appreciate coffee.
Jen Fulwiler, who really is as tall as she says she is (and twice as hilarious)
The conference was good, inspirational, and all of that. How could it not be? They had incredible speakers and the team put in a tremendous effort on every aspect of things.
The real highlight for me, though, was the one-on-one time I had with these and some other ladies over the course of the day-and-a-half I spent there.
It comes back to why face-time is so important for all of us, why we show up at these events in the end.
It’s not for the speakers. It’s not even for the bag of goodies.
It’s for the people. Period.
