Leah, Yocheved, Ephie and Yael!!!, Donna, Elise, Lisa, Dina, Esti, Hilda, Iris, Jason and Wifey!!! (so sorry forgot your first name), Jill, Judy, Lori, Malki and Malkie, Nancy, Miriam, Rachael, Sharon, Susan, Zessie and everyone else whose name I haven't mentioned - THANK YOU!!! You all made Monday night the most special and amazing evening of my professional life. Meeting, talking, hugging (lol - you know me, I can NOT help myself!), and laughing with each and every one of you was utterly amazing. I am so touched that you snatched up tickets within hours of our party announcement - so totally cool!!! I am all teary at the thought of it, seriously. I really love you all so much. From Philly, to all parts of Jersey, to Jericho and 5-towns, and Queens and BK and more you came! Did I say I love you all yet?!?!?

We are planning a new and exciting event soon. Until then enjoy these pretty pictures (you are all so beautiful - I am kvelling!).
