Hello Sandy... I was just reminded when I read your comment on my blog interview that I never touch base with you after the NYC meet-up. I wanted to say what a pleasure it was to meet you and to hang out and chat a bit. I had a lot of laughs and it was wonderful to learn about you and your life. I hope to have a close relationship with my own children as you do with your own. I hope to see you at the next NYC meet-up. All the best... Yolanda
