CHA Winter 2011 FUN!!!


Well as you know from my last post we made it home from CHA – YAY! We were lucky enough to be on a flight that was not cancelled and I felt so bad for all those people who were stuck in LA away from their families. I hope everyone is now home safe and sound.

All I can say is WOW! Having YNS at CHA was an amazing experience and I had so much fun meeting people from all over the globe. Vendors and retailers come from everywhere to exhibit and shop!

    Congratulations, Karen! So thrilled for your success at CHA! I can say I ‘knew’ you when… 🙂 And aren’t Lori and Jami the sweetest? Fun fact to know and tell: Lori and I are required to call each other “SWEET Lori” and “SWEET Carole.” It’s kind of a long story, but I love my SWEET Lori! (<– little rhyme for your Sunday morning pleasure 🙂 )
