i had a birthday not too long ago - and life has been really busy.
a wonderful friend (Charlotte, pictured below on the left) called to wish me a happy birthday and offer me a free trip to kansas city to time out for women, which is put on by deseret book. Charlotte offered me tickets to the event, hotel and a ride!
well, believe it or not, i really wanted to go, but had to think about it. i debated back and forth - should i go - should i stay. my family had things going on... but, i finally woke up thursday morning and thought, "am i crazy!!??? free room, transportation, ticket - oh yeah!"
we stayed at the sheraton in overland park - connected to the convention center. so awesome :)
i loved some of the elements in the lobby...
huge wing chairs with reading lamps...
i thought this idea for artwork was cool.
close up pictures of watches.
you could do this for anything you love or collect.
this was a showstopper in the convention center.
jennie's imitation of the vase in the corridor :).
this really was a time out for me :)! all of the speakers were wonderful.
i am so grateful for loving friends.
