In my usual style it was the final hours of my birthday and I was up still packing for an early morning flight. (Apparently that’s one bad habit I’m not breaking this year.) It suddenly dawned on me that I was going to have to pack my handouts in my checked bag. So out of curiosity I set em’ on the scale. 70 packs of paper does not pack light, let me tell you. First thing the next morning I was Cali bound! Kelley was kind enough to scoop me up at the airport and get me down to Santa Clara.
Sarah and Molly helped me set up shop which was a huuuge help.
Cheesin before folks started showing up.
When all was said and done I had a BLAST!!! A little over 75 people showed up and from the moment they walked in their energy was ON POINT! I officially love me some PK1 I Cali Teachers. Seriously, ya’ll can can swing by my neck of the woods anytime. In the end I found myself having to speed it up through the last section just to make sure I didn’t run out of time. It felt like blogging only in real time.
Apparently I have an adult teacher voice too. Who knew?! #notme
I wanted to test the waters and see if presenting was something I might enjoy and now I’m already wanting to do it all again, sooner than later. It didn’t hurt that I got to spend the weekend catching up with a few of my faves too. Way too many laughs with these ladies right here!
Haha – I can't believe how lame it was that I didn't take you anywhere cooler! We could have at least gone to that amazing TJ Maxx right next store 🙂 You were amazing in your session! Can't wait to hear you present again!!
