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 . . .
