An amazing lineup…

If you missed the 3rd Annual Women Inspiring Women Conference…that is so sad!  The day was lovely from beginning to end.  We had the wonderful Julie Maloney open the conference with a beautiful and powerful presentation.  Lynne Spreen, author of Dakota Blues share an inspiring talk and then we ended the day with the always delightful Maggie Downs, world traveler and writer extraordinaire!

Throughout the day we had vendor breaks, a silent auction and the always incredible delicious food that was served.  How we will top this event?  I have no idea, but as always we will work to make each conference better and better!photo (44)
