My message got cut off in the friend request... AS I WAS SAYING. :) It was great to see you again at hoop class. I cannot wait to see what you and Miss Saturn learn at Hoop Convergence!

Are you two going to Midwest Hoop Fest? I saw that you're a member of the group.

Also, I'm vending at a festival in a couple of weeks... I was wondering if you could share how you set up your area. I posted about it in the entrepreneurs group thread, "festival vending".

Thanks and I hope to see you in about a month!
