DAN Conference!

This weekend Todd and I headed to San Diego for the Defeat Autism Now conference. It was awesome as expected. Although I had to miss my 10 year high school reunion it was well worth the trip. Here are some of the highlights! Todd and I ate lunch and this cute little restaurant right across from crystal cove.
We met up with my good friend Amy from college. It was so fun to catch up.

Todd and I at Crystal Cove in La Jolla. The sea lions were so fun to watch.

The first night we got there we headed straight to Old Town Mexican Cafe to meet Sarah and Garrett for some good dinner. It was great to be able to see them again and catch up. They were are good friends from Ithaca.

Me at the conference. I put a picture of JoJo under my name tag so everyone could see my sweet boy.

Me and Julie Mathews. She is the author of Nourishing Hope. She is just amazing and knows so much about nutrition. She taught a cooking class and made some great things. I had my first taste of liver ( although it wasn't that bad I won't be having it anytime soon)

These are my girls from LIFE! Dawn is JoJo's AMAZING feeding therapist and Terry is just one AMAZING mom! It was so fun to be with them there. They are warriors.

Me and my Huby loving the conference.

Jenny showed up at the conference so I got here to sign her new book for me and take a quick picture. That was SO fun. And if you haven't read her new book MOTHER WARRIORS you guys really need to go get it. Its amazing and I loved every minute of it. I just LOVE her! She is really working hard for us MOMS!!!

Yet another Garage Sale!

We are having another garage sale to benefit our little boy JoJo and his journey with Autism. So here we are again asking for anything you don't want. Just drop it by my Mom's house or give me a call and we will come pick it up. Last year with the help from the garage sell we were able to begin bio-medical treatments, and ABA therapies that have helped JoJo so much. We hoping to be able to continue his treatments and therapies and see even more progress. The garage sell is going to be the first weekend in December. So if your cleaning out for the holidays remember that we want anything that you don't. More info to come!
