Apparently, they alerted the kitchen that I was coming. Look what dessert was for lunch!
The grounds here are luscious and green and there is nary a fall foliage color to be found. In addition to practicing my speeches for tomorrow, I was able to take a walk outside with Lori Nova from the Nova Studio today and spend time by the firepit reading.
This evening, I had a chance to meet Sandy Maine from Sunfeather Soaps. She was one of the original instigators of The Soap Guild. Sandy was as sweet and humble as could be and told me that the secret to her 29 full years in business was work/life balance. She doesn’t work weekends and tries to keep her family always first.
It was a delight to meet her and I’m looking forward to hearing her key note address tomorrow morning, bright and early.

S’mores cupcakes?! Sounds amazing…I’m going to have Google for a recipe. 🙂
That is far more an idyllic conference than the ones my dh goes to. Lucky you!
Yesterday was really amazing, warm sunny weather. Today? Not so much – it’s cold and wet and rainy – but yesterday was a really nice day. =)
Oh, you are going to make us so jealous this week! But I’m sitting here in Iowa shivering (34) and looking at your picture in a tank top and thinking – isn’t she in Vermont??? Isn’t it colder there? What is up?

I really wanted to go to there since I am a new member of the Guild. But after the trip to Hawaii, I couldn’t do it 🙂 Maybe next year! It looks like I have really missed out on a lot though… Sandy Maine, hanging out with you too Anne-Marie, and the S’mores muffins! What a treat! I look forward to reading more about the conference!
