Time to Say Goodbye :(

Emily, Sara, and I made such wonderful friends during the convention. We hated to leave, but our families needed us back here. I've put all the pictures on here so we can see them whenever we want. We did get some good news though.....Convention next year will be in LONDON!!! We asked Pam Morgan if they were going to allow us American's to crash again next year, and were told that as long as there is room we should be invited. So.....you now have a year's worth of warning. We Crazy American's will be returning... Save us a seat in the pub!Here is the entire gang...Ok, maybe not everyone, but it is a ton of amazing UK demos that we met this weekend.
This is Chris, My UK Demo support stalker. It's a long story, but he said hello to me by name and then I spent the rest of convention trying to get him to explain to me how he knew me. Come to find out he researched the net looking for the crazy American who wanted to crash the European convention. Guess he found me :)
These are Martina and Andrea, my two German Demo friends. I had actually spoken to Andrea online thanks to Yahoo Babel fish, but unfortunately in person we had a little more difficulty with the translations. Luckily Martina was able to translate for us and we got to know each other a little better!
This is my friend Niki aka KiKi (yes, another long story, she got her nickname because we have bad memories :) ). We met in the bar on Thursday night and had a wonderful time!
This person in the middle is Monica Gale. We didn't get a chance to know her very well, but we did think she was absolutely FABULOUS!
Who could forget Stella. We met on day one while we were waiting to get into convention, and then I was able to spend a little more time chatting with her during our two hour lunch break. She is an amazing woman and I am so honored to know her.
Well, unfortunately that is it for me. It was an amazing two and a half days, and it came to a close way too soon. As I mentioned before, we are hoping to attend the London convention next year, so it really isn't goodbye as much as it is see you later. I know we will keep in touch with these women throughout the year. They have really touched and inspired me in both my business, and in my every day life. Thank you so much for allowing this Crazy American to be a part of your European convention. It was an adventure for me!
Oh, and don't forget......You can always visit me here. What happens at conventions goes immediately on my blog! :)

See you in London!

  7. Kelly, can you possibly ROCK any more? This bird's eye view of the convention has been AWESOME!! Thank you so much for devoting so much time and effort so we could all share the experience. All the pictures are fantastic...actually I'm jealous, lol. I took pictures of the screen at Regionals and maybe 1 out of 15 were viewable, lol! Thanks so much, Kelly! ~Betsy Z.
