The trip to Dallas was a good trip despite traveling with small children. I always take a great deal of inspiration from these events and thus I can get “refueled” every 6 months. No different this time. I do need to go over my notes, but I feel recharged and revitalized. The small events that I attended between January and July help me, but Seminar and Leadership are the two biggies.
I don’t want to bore you with all the details about our trip, but will give you a reader’s digest version:

Kalicak Awards Night (Pictures to Follow)
Last year, I was awarded the Kalicak Area’s Mr. Mary Kay award which is voted upon by the directors in Jen’s National Area. Well, one (and only) of my duties is to present the incoming award recipient. This means that I get to get behind the microphone and say a few words.
I had been looking forward to this for a while but had little time to write down was going on in my head. Of course, I did bring a prop with me for some cheap laughs… which did work. But really, that night I was able to be the unofficial official photographer! As a result, I SO need a Speedlight among other things for Stella.
