      Hey Angie-
      Came inside an looked up Sharon – I had her confused with a Sharon Green who came to our LHG but she lives near Atlanta and it was too far. Sharon Black has not been to the Homestead meetings but from what I remember of her, she’d love it! So, why don’t the two of you come together to our next meeting on the 22 of this month 🙂
      Good to talk with you…
      Let me know about the retreat when you know – I have 2 spots available as of today.

    I wish I was not so far away!!! I would LOVE to go!!! But I would be limited to what I could bring, as I would be flying in from Idaho…

    I so wish there was such a thing here in Idaho!!! I am sooo deeply sad!!
