Today is one of those days that has after burners. I’ve had this sneaking suspicion all morning that I’m forgetting something really important. I know one thing I haven’t forgotten though. Today is August 6 and on this day one year ago Steph and our team of awesomeness ( Debbi, Rachel, Joann, Debra, Lisa …) were on our way to the Oregon Convention Center to get the Sock Summit show up and running.
In some ways it feels like it has been more than a year ago and in others it seems like it was just yesterday. I think this is true for big life moments and this most certainly was a very big life moment for me. The whole thing was from the first tiny spark of thought to signing the last check and mailing it off.
I remember that ride from Scappoose to PDX like it was yesterday. So much excitement laced with a healthy amount of terror. What a ride.
I wish I had time this morning to list all the ways this changed my life, all the ways I feel I grew. I wish I had time to honor all the people that showed up and gave all they had to give. I think I just might wish there was more time, which is really quite hysterical since we’re on the this journey again.
I’m just so excited to be able to do this again with the best partner anyone could hope to have and just the best rock star team.
Stay tuned… for so much more.
ohh no, look at the clock. Gotta run. A wee bit late for a very important date.
Here are just a few of my favourite moments:
Anna Z and Barbara W. chatting for the first time ever.
Just a few moments. For every one here, there are at least 20 more.
