I spent the day with a wonderful group of Florida girls who are all members of Martha Stewart Dreamers into Doers. (D.I.D.)
We met up at downtown Disney for a meet & greet and the weather couldn't have been more perfect.

It was so nice to meet up with like-minded business women...
Women who are in pursuit of their dreams...
reaching for the stars...
and open to sharing ideas & advice with each other.

We were showered with gifts from MS Headquarters...(thanks again Caitlin!!)...
and sweet surprises from fabulous sponsors!!

And of course...being the creative girls we are...
we all showed up with cute little gifts to swap with one another.

I will be doing a full-post later this week but wanted to give you a quick glimpse at this fabulous group of women...

the quote from Walt Disney epitomizing the purpose of our meeting as "Dreamers", 
summing up most of my conversation with Kori
and what I believe is the foundation to being innovative:
"Times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our aim constantly on the future"


I'll be sharing some photos of the products sent to us by the fantastic sponsors I worked with...
In the meantime I want to quickly give a huge THANK YOU to them: 


KEEPING IT REAL
• I was 30 minutes late to the meeting
• There were so many boxes of goodies I brought for everyone, I had to use Ella's stroller to help carry it all - a silly first impression indeed! *wink*
(and thank you to Theresa for meeting me in the parking lot to help me wheel it all in). *wink*http://paperandpigtailsparty.com/

It really was a special day. I asked Kori on Sunday if she was having a "meet up hangover" like me.
