Our National Inclusion Project Gala took place in Charlotte, NC last weekend and I was a leeeetle tied up, in a very good way.
Our prompt from Sally for this week couldn't have been more appropriate:
"We all have, make, witness connections every day; connecting to one another makes us feel that we are part of something more, something great! This week, focus on the connections you make, the connections that naturally occur, a connection of things, your connection to your environment, craft, faith."
The weekend was all about making connections, but this is a very important one to me. The first picture was taken in 2004, in Charlotte NC on October 16th. I am on the left, Diane Bubel is on the right.
Diane is the co-founder of the National Inclusion Project, for which I have worked for the last 10 years; the picture above was the first day we met.
The picture below was taken at our Gala, on October 12th, 2013 in Charlotte, NC. I told Diane I wanted a do-over!
A little older, a little better dressed....still friends!
