Over the moon.

With all of our festivities over, we finally have a chance to share some thoughts and photos with you. Truth be told, it is hard to put into words how we are feeling about this year's show. 'Over the moon' might come the closest. We know how much time we put into preparing, how many signs and posters we put up, how many mentions we got in the local papers. But somehow, even knowing all of that, the number of people that came out to see us left us almost speechless. And it wasn't just the number of people, it was the enthusiasm and eagerness they came in with. Everyone seemed genuinely happy to be there. Thank you, Rochester, for welcoming all of our vendors with open arms.

Our vendors. How can we put it into words? To put it simply: we are smitten. Lizz said it best here, when she said that this year's show felt like a family reunion. That is the feeling that we have always wanted for our show and for the first time, we really feel as though we've achieved it. Seeing all of your smiling faces on Saturday morning was truly rejuvenating, at a time when we needed it most.

We took our time getting a post about the event up here, but our vendors wasted no time. Last week was quite simply a joy-fest for us as we read about everyone's experiences. Abby's photos are better than any of ours could ever be and her words are even sweeter. You can find some more warm and fuzzy posts about the weekend here and here. And it isn't all from our vendors, either. Some folks went home after simply attending the event and had wonderful things to say.

We are blushing to our very core.

Our sincerest and heartfelt thanks have to go to Boulder Coffee: for continuing to help make our events truly warm. Our Street Team: for helping us paper the town and go beyond our reach. All of our behind the scenes helping hands: you know who you are. Thank you. Did we forget to mention anyone? Rest assured: you are in our hearts.

Truly, from the bottom of our collective heart: Thank you.
JoAnn, Karen, Shanna, Cris, and Rachael
