CHA Set Up

We got up early and headed over to the convention center... a quick walk from our Hotel. I opened a package from Larry and was delighted to find chocolate covered strawberries! We love to stay at the Anabella. Call me an optimist, but I thought we would be done by 2pm and pictured an afternoon nap in my future. It was not to be. We worked through breakfast & lunch before finishing at 7:30pm and grabbing dinner. Ash & I took a quick, but expensive taxi ride over to Costco and picked up fresh flowers. It has been good to see my friends in this industry throughout the day. I have know them for many years. We accidently printed our bi-line as Gathering Life's Memories instead of Gathering Life's Moments. It's an oops that I don't think many will catch. We are quite tickled with our display this year. Tomorrow the show begins and one thing is for certain... we will be more tired tomorrow than we are today :)

Our #17 Bday is this weekend at Pebbles in my Pocket. Larry & the girls are working hard and keeping things going on their end. We sure miss them, though Larry is getting surprisingly good at texting which is fun.

Your booth looks fantastic! Sorry about the memories?! I actually wrote "moments" the first time, but then I went back to double check, the email said "memories" so I re-did it?! I should have given you both, but I thought I had a "senior moment"!?

I love your set up. All your hard work has come together. I so hope your show is successful! Everyone looks good and I know you must be tired. I send you all my hugs! You guys are a great team...Moments or Memories, both sound good to me!!
