I arrived home from Dallas in the wee hours of this morning. I am exhausted but so glad I went. The 9th Annual Conference for Young Women Affected By Breast Cancer exceeded my expectations in every way.

I expect to be writing a lot about this later this week but I am so very tired and have chemo early tomorrow.

Meanwhile, here are some shots of folks gathered around for the group photo. Very many of us were hanging around above taking photos and I think we diminished the numbers a bit. There were 8oo women in attendance. Three hundred of us were on scholarship. It was incredible.

I hope you feel better after your chemo. I got here because you are going to the Bloggers' breakfast this weekend and the link was in the email I just got. I would be going but Friday is my last chemo (out of 6) and I am usually not in any shape to go anywhere the Saturday following. But I'll be there in spirit! And I'll be at the next one (whenever they have it). "Zoom" knows me best of the bloggers. Go get 'em!
