My conference was at the flamingo, so I had plenty of time to explore there and even see the flamingos. They were asleep when I saw them though.
And here is my new friend from class, Renee. We sat by each other for 48 hours that week, ate lunch together every day, and even rode to the airport together, where we spent more time waiting for our flights. So needless to say, we got pretty close in that one week and I kinda miss this girl!
So I obviously had lots of fun, but I also learned so much and am so excited to make this move in my career. I think it will be so fulfilling. Also, here's a little public service announcement to women over 40: Get your mammogram every year!! And if they offer breast tomosynthesis, do that too, even if you have to pay more for it because most insurances do not yet cover this. Early detection of breast cancer is so vital, and mammograms discover it before you even show signs. So just do it!
Also a special thanks to Quentin for taking good care of the kiddos by himself for a week. I know it wasn't easy and I am so lucky to have that kind of support in my life. Thanks also to Michelle, Colton and whoever else helped out also. Couldn't have done this without you guys.
