I'll share more later in the week about the truths that I learned over the weekend. I've got a ton of notes on my phone that I have to process before I can put them down into coherent sentences.
Mom picked me up not-so-bright and early on Friday morning (it was definitely still dark outside when we left at 6:00 am). We headed to KC and met up with some other women from her church, most of whom I already knew in some way or another. We attended the conference from about 10 am to 3, checked into our hotel, had a nice dinner as a group, and then went back for some more conference.
The entire group at dinner...it was seriously a fabulous time! I can't wait for next year!
Ok, seriously please ignore my ghostly white face...not sure why I decided to reflect the camera flash! But please do note my mom & I's outfits...as she came in the door on Friday morning I couldn't believe what she was wearing---think we might be related by our matchy, matchy outfits? Love it!
Saturday was another full day of speakers & worship & fellowship. My sister-in-law, Millie, was even able to join us for a little while during the day. She & my brother are living in KC while he attends law school so it was great to hang out with her for a little while. Unfortunately she had to head back to work so it was a short visit; but good nonetheless.
Me, Millie, & Mom
