Leadership day one

I am in Nashville for Stampin' Up!'s leadership conference. It is beautiful here. Snow on the ground, stampers everywhere and music in the air. Nashville boasts itself as the music capital of the world. There is live music at the airport and everywhere you go there is an obvious focus on the great music that is born here. I am in heaven! What more do I need? Well, maybe my family here with me. I do miss them! Thank goodness for my awesome mom and mother in law home taking care of my babies. My mind is at rest knowing they are well taken care of.
Last night we partied hard at the Wild Horse Saloon in downtown Nashville. It was awesome! David Robbins, the famous songwriter/singer entertained us first. He was amazing! Not only incredibly talented, but also a super nice guy. I got to spend some time with him after he performed. He looks 40, acts 25, and is actually older than me! I won't tell his age....he likes to surprise people with it.
After Dave we had a line dancing class that rocked! I finally got it! Yes, it's true, I caught on! It was a blast! After the lesson Brother Trouble played for us and we danced the rest of the night.
One of the things I love about Stampin' Up! events is the entertainment. I always come home with new music. I love it! Two new cds! yay!
Today we start the business part of the conference. Training,new policies, stampin samples,.....and lots of swapping! I can't wait to see all the creativity that is going to be gathered in one place. If you have never been to a Stampin' Up! are missing out! The creatiity hangs in the air like a heavy mist. It is intoxicating!
Hope your day is as wonderful as mine!
