San Jose, here I come. After the very rude awakening that tomorrow's 3:45am alarm will be, I'll hop my cab to the airport and head west to Cali. I have a maternal health event sponsored by Merck to attend a couple hours after I arrive and then get to have dinner with one of my best college friends, Trisha, and the fabulous Paige, who I met when we both served as bridesmaids in T's wedding. I cannot wait to see those two women! Yee-howdy for gal-pals! And then it's off to the races of BlogHer. If this year's conference even matches, much less exceeds, last year's experience, I'm in for another big, inspiring treat. Will blog from the road. Today's lunch salad atop the gorgeous(!) hand-crafted wood board my friend, Suzanne, sent me. I received it today- what a beautiful surprise!
