    Denny - Hey Samantha, such a great seminar you gave us today in the Lighthouse. You’re a wonderful and delightful person and we were all very inspired by you. And, of course, the appealing stories you shared with us. We’ve also wrote an article about it which you can read, only thing is – it’s in Dutch. But I can translate it if you’d like!
    I heard of your blog on the way back, and wanted to link it at the end of the article. Looks like that seems to fit your dreams list of having 10.000 comments! So, here’s my share 😉 Speaking of which, what an amazing bucketlist. Is it OK with you if I use some of your dreams for my own ? 😉 I hope to meet you again soon, and thanks for a great day!ReplyCancel
