Ah man, had a witty beginning to this post already written but I guess WordPress app didn’t like it so it magically disappeared. Day 2 at #timejen12 a great success. Of course I had stayed up late writing the post yesterday so I figured coffee would make the tired go away..coffee failed me BUT twittering like a hopped up pageant princess on pixie stix saved the day AND Let me share valued information on the sessions I attended follow me at @musiccargirl14 to get the links and quotes from the session I attended today, and as I explained tonight at the AMAZING tweet up, the car in musiccargirl14 actually has a purpose I do love cars!
