I hope this email finds you well and enjoying this little thunderstorm. I know my salsa garden is! I just wanted to take a few minutes to send you and the models committee a huge thank you! The photo shoot day was beyond my imagination. The whole day was above the most treasured day I have had, it ranks right up there to my wedding day almost 30 years to the day of the photo shoot!  Spending the time with all those beautiful and courageous women with different journeys was inspiring, special, and full of love! The encouragement just poured from every corner of your beautiful house!  It felt so good to let go and be free of emotions at the end of my shoot. And...I can't thank you enough for being the first person


to tell me, I deserve this and I was beautiful! I certainly was out of my comfort level and I'm not one to be comfortable with being fussed over. But I'm so thankful I took this ride, especially with the beautiful warrior women! I want to also let you know I'm thankful for Marcus, he is a talented person and he truly loves his work and models! He made me feel at ease.  My time at Cloz to Home was a warming and welcoming feeling from the store staff. The ladies were so kind, thoughtful and encouraging. They really know what a person will like and be comfortable in just by knowing their product and asking questions and taking the time to get to know the models.  My door prize gift card was to Xanadu as you know. My time there was wonderful, relaxing and very much therapeutic. Lucy truly is a master of her work. She made my sore muscles

from radiation, exercising, tamoxifin treatment and working horses so much more free of stiffness! Such a beautiful facility as well! Lastly, thank you Lydia for your creation of Hope Lives and for what it stands for. Hope lives in me every day in my personal and professional daily journey. I can't explain it other than the word Hope is all I need to make it through life's challenges and it served me well through my journey!   To the beautiful committee members, thank for your passion, love support, guidence and FUN personalities.  Each of you are so filled with life, love and encouragement! You all are, too, oozing with inspiration! Thank you! I look forward to more time together!  Warm Regards and Much Gratitude, Kim Ellis
