BonBon Break

Hello! Welcome to Issue 9. This is one amazing issue. As a matter of fact, it reminds me of a stereogram. You remember stereograms, don’t you? Those crazy repeating pattern pictures that you were supposed to stare at until your eyes went dry and numb and then you would see 3-D dolphins splashing in the waves or a bear jumping out to grab you?

So, yes. This issue reminds me of stereograms. I have spent a lot of time with the content. The more I looked at it, the more I saw. Humor, insight, creativity, determination, perseverance and did I mention HUMOR?!? Oh my, a couple of you REALLY rocked my world this week. (Stop on over to the Bedroom and watch the video there to get a feel for what I am talking about. HA! Hint: You will never look at Spanx the same again!)

The more you look through this issue, the more you will see. The more voices you will hear. The more stories you will gather. The more ideas you will share.

The women of the Backyard gave me incredible reminders to GET OUTSIDE and so I did today, on my busiest day of the week. I turned everything off, packed up the kids and did this for 2 hours.

Sometimes you just HAVE to and we all needed it.

Thank you for joining us here in this little corner of the electronic world. Thank you for sharing your words and thoughts. Please celebrate the women within this issue by liking, sharing, tweeting, stumbling and pinning them. I will and so will Kathy, she’s good like that.

Happy Issue 9 and Kathy and I are proud to present to you the Women of Bonbon Break!
