OK, We NEED to Catch Up

So, it’s a little after midnight, but I promised myself that I would write this week. Over the past 2 weeks, I’ve reconnected and/or heard from several old friends, former students, former teachers, etc. that have “found” me via LE Woman! I wouldn’t call it coincidence, but I know that I need to catch up with you, too! SOOOOOOO much …
