I've had the pleasure of meeting her a couple times before at other blog events, so I didn't branch out and make as many new connections as I had intended, but we still had a perfectly lovely time!
The location was stunning. Truly. I can't wait to take my girlfriends there on our next girls trip to the cities.
I wish I had been more diligent in my photo taking that night, but alas, I was so caught up in the moment (remember how I said I was going to do that?!) that I did not take my camera out until the end of the night.
I absolutely--there is that word again-- know that my new friend Jennifer is a lifelong friend. I admire her honesty, and respect her opinions. She has been given a gift of words. And best of all she is a lover and follower of Jesus, and she is gracious enough to take all of us on her journey of motherhood. As mothers we don't have all the answers.

I'll leave you with this tidbit--
During the Vikings/Packers football game--!yes we won!-- Brian shed light on a question that I am sure many women share. When the boys asked why Brett Favre was wearing pink shoes, Brian responded with "It is breast awareness month" To which both boys looked into space trying to wrap their minds around the fact that adults would dedicate an entire month to being aware of such a thing. I had to quickly interject that it is indeed breast CANCER awareness month.....And we wonder why there is such fascination? They are taught at an early age. Thanks babe!
