    I had an absolutely marvelous time yesterday talking with each of you - catching up with some, and meeting some for the first time. Aurora Rose was beyond lovely, and I'm still energized from the fun we had. It was fabulous to have such a wonderful group of ladies to show the first visual presentation of my business social network with. Thanks for coming out - hope to see you all at the holiday party, I'm looking forward to chatting again!!

    Taking two hours this afternoon to meet dynamic and interesting entrepreneurs from whom I can learn was wonderful. The samples of "Tastefully Simple" and chocolates were delicious and the gathering was very warm and cordial. I discovered unique jewelry and greeting cards and enjoyed my purchase. Aurora Rose Boutique and its owners are professional, yet very friendly and accommodating. I'm very glad I stopped in to meet everyone this afternoon. Thank you.

    I just stopped by Aurora Rose and had a blast perusing the new vendors they have added since my last visit.
