Women’s History Expo

Saturday started off at 5 am with 2 out of 3 sisters creeping around the house to get all the last minute preparations completed. With a 3 hour round trip we wanted to make sure *everything* made it into the van *before* we hit the road. 🙂

And… thanks to a favorite CD and some discussion on what my “speech” would look like at the show {each of us vendors as well as some of the attendees were asked to share about our family, our business, our products, our vision and goals, etc…} we made it to Thomasville ready for a great day!

First time in Thomasville… 

And here we are all set up and ready to go! 1 of 5 vendors. Hey… sometimes the smallest shows are the best. We really had no idea what to expect, so when we finally found the building {after driving back and forth with our GPS and going “where on earth is this place!”} I’ll admit we were a little surprised at how small the building was. But then again, the size of the building doesn’t always matter either. My first show was one of the most successful shows and it was in a pretty small church. 😉

This event was more like a meet and greet with many speakers lined up {for short testimonies and speeches} at the beginning and some food and fellowship later on into the afternoon. We were each given the opportunity to share about our businesses prior to the shopping experience. 🙂

I absolutely loved sharing with the women – the audience was very enthusiastic and attentive, not to mention supportive of my work and products! While the group was very small, we definitely made great connections, collected names, and made new friends.

Many hours later we loaded up our van and headed home. But first, a stop at Chick-Fil-A for frozen lemonade {shhh… I know it’s not super healthy, but it is amazingly delicious and refreshing}.

And… that would also be the $5.00 necklace I bought at the show. 🙂  

We arrived home {2 of the only ones around in a rather quiet house}, promptly dumped our boxes and supplies everywhere, and fell asleep… that is just for a short while, because toward evening our family attended a special dinner for all the “new” families in the church we are visiting.

It was a pretty crazy day.
