One of my favorite days involved three of my favorite people and drives to two of my favorite places. It was the summer of 2011, a couple months before the first Influence Conference.
First I drove to Grand Rapids to see two of my college friends.

I remember tweeting after I had seen my friends from college that my heart was full to bursting and I wasn’t even done seeing all of my people. I was on my way to Ann Arbor to meet Margaret for the first time.

At the time, I didn’t have a local group of friends, and M was the nearest of my people at ninety minutes away. (AAMI is in the middle of us so it’s our usual meeting grounds.) So this day was refreshment for my soul, remembering that even if my people weren’t nearby, they were still my people.
