I loved meeting you and Owen on Saturday, and was super inspired to hear the report from the group you are guiding.
Thanks so much for being there. I took a lot of photos of you, but it seemed like I was having a hard time getting one that looked like you were talking. I'll post the best one soon! Take care and call me anytime 398-9750 Juliet
