    That is a FABULOUS pic of Melissa! So glad that we get one of her in action instead of her behind the camera (not to say those aren’t amazing, too, but this one is right on.

    Thanks so much for this! The reception was packed! And, I like this photo too – so much that I’ve just put it on my home page…I have no idea who shot it, so I just credited WSW. Hope that’s OK!
