*that’s what she said*
I went to the Evo Conference last weekend and… LOOK… they let me be on a stage with a MICROPHONE!

And why did I have a mic? On account of the fact of… I don’t know. They asked, I said yes. The pull of the mic is strong… If you’d like to watch and listen. You can. But I’m not. I can’t watch. Even as I type it makes my chest hurt. Yet… here I am embedding the video code…
By the way… My daughter Olivia and I made the body glitter I gave during the presentation. We made 400 – 10g bottles of body glitter (aloe vera gel + glitter = body glitter, yo). If you live in Kitsap county and can’t find unscented aloe vera gel, it’s because of me. Which shouldn’t be a problemo since no one is getting sun-burned here in the Pacific Northwet because – THE SUN DOENS’T LIVE HERE.
At one point when we were tasking madly, I said, “Eeeeps! I poured too much glitter!” Without skipping a beat Olivia replied, “I thought you could never have enough glitter, MOM.”
True that, and I love that girl. She alone holds a large portion of my inner sparkle in her smile.
Speaking of smiles… I was so nervous. Clearly.

As much as I make this all about me… there were 7 other Ignite-ers. Grab a glass of wine or sweet tea, or double mocha (my personal poison)… settle in and view them all here… each are 5 minutes. You’ll love you chose to spend 40 or so minutes with these people.
Each was SO inspiring… and funny… and inspiring. Several of the ladies I consider dear friends. And can I just say — what an HONOR it was not only to have been asked to share part of my story, but to have been joined with such an astounding group of women (and one man!) I am honored and a wee-bit humbled. Actually a lot humbled.
