Forget the 80 hour weeks for the past 3 months creating my vision for our display, the sweat equity/excitement (read anxiety) in bringing this to fruition, and the pure diabolical logistics of making this happen- I was most excited just to have this as an excuse to spend so much time with my beautiful, super-positive, always supportive #1 Mom in the Universe!
