It’s been fairly cold this winter with a lot of unexpected snow and ice, but this week I was surprised by not only warmer weather, but the coming of spring flowers. I couldn’t be happier! I had to go for a quick walk to get up close to the blooms and take a few photos.
It’s funny because the longer I blog the more time flies. My years are marked succinctly by the milestones I blog about. For the past few years I have written posts quite similar to this one where I am happy to see the flowers push forth seemingly out of nowhere after a frigid winter. The next thing I will blog about is an upcoming trip and then the summer and the cycle goes on.
This weekend I will be off to Chicago to speak at the IEG Sponsorship Conference. I will join SOS Children’s Villages and Johnson & Johnson on a panel: It Takes a Village to Build a Partnership. I’ll be happy to be in the Windy City again. It’s been quite some time! I have to admit, it’s nice to be speaking again after a long purposeful absence from conferences.
Have a great weekend!
