I just returned from a trip to Orange, California to visit my Stepdaughter. I'm not too thrilled about being back home. The weather is so dreary in the Toronto area right now and there's not a palm tree in sight. Well, maybe the odd one in a shopping mall if I look really hard, but that doesn't count :-).
While I was in California, Michelle Minch of Moving Mountains Design Home Staging in Pasadena, California arranged for a Stagers' lunch. She is just as awesome in person as she is on her Active Rain blog. What an amazing lady! I can't thank Michelle enough for organizing our get together. It was SO much fun and everyone was so generous with their tips and advice. Also there were Michelle Krawczyk and Leigh Blackwell, both of Staging For You, Inc. in Rancho Santa Margarita, California as well as Michelle Minch's Assistant, Melissa.
I was truly humbled to be amongst such talent and so honoured that they took the time to travel to Orange for lunch with me. I also have to give a big thank you to Active Rain, because if it wasn't for AR, I never would have made these connections.
I hope to be back in California some time next year to visit my Stepdaughter and if so, I would love the opportunity to meet up with them again. Next time, lunch is my treat!
