I am pleased to say that John and Brenda Warner have invited me to join them in Iowa for the Davenport Walkathon so I am heading out!!
I would love to meet all our Iowa friends. If you can get yourself to Davenport, bring your friends, your family, your DHs, your babies. I would just love to be able to put a face to a name. Please come.
As some of you may know, my dad and mom were 5th generation Iowans and I spent many a summer in Waterloo with my grandmother or in Toledo on my granddad's farm. My dad, stepmom, aunt, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew live in Des Moines (My niece--who is amazing and brilliant--is at the University of Iowa). So it's great to get to see family and walk for this important cause.
Please join me in celebrating Shelly Bridgewater's life, remember her and celebrate her beautiful daughter Hailey. (John--correct me if I got that spelled wrong!)
You've got to come!!! I'm counting on it!
See you all soon!
