Back from the conference . . . so many gifts!

What a marvelous time we had at the 2011 MomHeart Conference in Raleigh-Durham!  A weekend full of encouragement, friends, chocolate and tea does a girl good.  I’ll be writing all about it soon, but since I’ve just come back from the 2011 MomHeart Conference, I know what’s really important and won’t be spending the day on the computer.  😉  I’m looking forward to all my little people waking up so I can give them their new books–a long-held tradition!

So many gifts to list . . .

  1. Misty! It was so nice to meet you this weekend and to hear your encouraging words! Val gave me your blog address, and I look forward to reading it. :) I hope you had a good flight home. I went shopping at Kohls today. 😉

    I’m here from Ann’s – and it’s Thursday – but you know how many there were to get through – and I love reading them. It just took me this long to get to yours.

    I know a lot of moms who came back from that conference – all of them incredible moms to begin with – and now even better.

    My fave from the list by the way – *my own bed and pillow (because hotels are nice and all – but there is nothing like your own sheets, and pillow){smile}

    Your list was contagious, and I’m more thankful for having read it.

    God Bless and Keep you and yours
