I can't come to this area without the old song that Dionne Warwick made popular, "Do you know the way to San Jose?" running through my head! It has been a gorgeous weekend here in California - perfect for my classes and adventures with Jeremy and Becca!
I've been coming here to San Jose for so many years - starting back in about 2005 or so to teach at CKU (Creating Keepsakes University) - never dreaming that my son and his wife would be living here. It makes coming here to teach all that more fun!
We had a great weekend at Memories Live On in Cupertino! Friday night, as I drove home from class, I was so overwhelmed with gratefulness for the friendships and encouragement and kindness from my students that I missed the exit for the expressway back to Milpitas and ended up going around in a huge circle in confusion. :) That's what I get for thinking too hard! I love the sense of community and belonging that customers find at their scrapbook stores - it's so important in this very busy and impersonal world we live in.
Anyway, a huge thank you to Vivian and to all the students who came from near and far (very far!) to take the classes this weekend. I loved meeting so many new people and, of course, seeing all the people I know and love too!
I can't wait to see everyone again next fall!
