So glad we were 'destined' to meet again at AC Moore that day and discovered another interest we have in common.

Wow! Something as simple as just wanting to get together and knit turned out to grow so much into a wonderful fellowship!!

Even though you can't make all the meetings I SO miss you there!

You are most definitely Speshule!! You are the first smiling face that I met on my very first CP meeting and you made me feel very welcome.

Belly dancing... LOVE IT! I've never taken a class, but used it to some extent during Jack's birth. He was danced into the world.

Hope to actually meet you soon!
