I attended the Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry 2012 conference at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort, Orlando and stayed a few extra days to visit Mickey at the Magic Kingdom and visit the resor'ts Lazy River Pool. Dinner at Downtown Disney with my son Jordan and his girlfriend. Learning, Laughter and Love...a perfect combination.
With our new year underway, we wanted to shine a bright spotlight on our amazing group of women that make this club so special. We will focus on how we can connect with each other, have a great table top discussion and share an educational moment to ensure we all know how to connect and engage in this new year of the WEC.
We look forward to spending time connecting, laughing and enjoying your company at our next luncheon!
I have been planning for well over a year to attend the London Olympic Games so it was a dream come true for me to spend 10 days in my home town of London in July and August. We supported both team GB and team USA and went to 9 different events. We watched some sports that we had never seen before including fencing and archery and also some old favorites like swimming and track and field. It was wonderful!
I have attached some pictures:
The first one is Tower Bridge with the Olympic Rings which we took on our way down the River Thames to see the dressage at Greenwich
The second is watching archery at the Lords cricket ground
The third is a picture of the scoreboard in the athletics stadium after we saw Jessica Ennis win the Women's Heptathlon for team GB
In August, I returned to the summers of my childhood. My husband, Steve, and boys, Robbie (6) and Johnny (weeks shy of 2), and I drove all the way up to Memphis, Michigan. My great-grandparents had settled in Memphis as farmers after immigrating from Poland in the early 1900s. My grandma bought their house and continued to live there until 1990 - when she moved to Ft. Lauderdale. This house was built in the early 1850s. We lucked out to be there during Memphis Days - bounce houses, bands and beer tents!
We visited Lookout Mountain, went fishing (and ate the fish!), pantoon boating, hiking, biked Mackinaw Island, visited the Twenty-First Century Financial Group's auxiliary office (M/V Toucan in Muskegon, MI), and attended a wedding in Raleigh on our way home! Total mileage: 4021!
