  1. Looks great! I’m hoping to attend – I’ve never been to one of your conference, so I’ll put it on the calendar now. Of course, it all comes down to if I have someone to care for my special needs adult daughter as school will be in session and hubby is a teacher. 🙂 But if I start planning now, I just may make it!
