Once the third session of the conference ended yesterday afternoon, I changed into my sneakers and then met Monica and Kath for a little exercise.

    As expected, Sibylle’s 30th birthday bash was a total BLAST! 😀 The night included all of the essential party elements: an attractive venue, tasty eats, a special drink menu, a heartfelt slideshow, an active dance floor, and non-stop good times with family and friends. From the look of it, everyone really enjoyed themselves! The party was held at […]
