A week has passed since leaving convention and I already miss my violet friends like crazy. Because (imo), the very best part of any African violet convention is the friends you get to visit with!
So here are some pics of SOME of my favorite people at convention, I'm really bummed I didn't get pics with more. Better luck next time I guess! :)

Niagara Falls, Y'all!!

One of the coolest things about going to conventions is seeing the sights wherever it is you're visiting. Which usually I never get to do.
But BJ Ohme was nice enough to let me tag along with a group today to go see Niagara Falls and it was AMAZING!!!
