The funniest of coincidences

Today I was invited to attend a panel discussion with my boss on a healthcare topic.  My boss is very well-respected in the community, and as part of her job, she goes to many many meetings weekly around the county.  Most of the time (well, actually almost never) I do not accompany her to these meetings.  Today was a little different, and I was able to attend.

The panel discussion was wonderful with three lovely very well-rounded speakers and I almost got emotional multiple times because the stories they told were so touching.  At one point one of the speakers was talking about his family life growing up in Florida.  He was joking about going with his family to look at fabrics because one of his very close family members worked for a little someone.  A little someone named LILLY PULITZER!!!!!!!!!!  I just about died.  It was especially perfect as I was the only one in the audience wearing Lilly.  (Realistically I was the only one wearing anything with color. ;))  I could hardly sit still and listen to the rest of the panel as I was so excited to ask him questions about it later!

He was wonderful to talk to and I tried not to be too embarrassing.  (Hello, lovely life story, but did you mention Lilly Pulitzer?!)  I would also like to send a huge appreciation into the universe for how wonderful he was with a babbling girl drooling over his life of unlimited Lilly. 

Could you imagine the joys of working for the legend herself?  ;)  Hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy all the blogs on the Blog Hop this week!
