Women in Blue Jeans

WIBJ was held this week, giving farm women a couple of days to relax, listen to great speakers, and attend short sessions on a variety of subjects pertinent to life on the farm. This 8th annual conference was held on the campus of Dakota Wesleyan University in one of their great facilities. (The conference was not held last year due to the weather SD experienced in 2009.)  WIBJ was a time to, as their slogan this year stated, Renew your friendships, Recycle your knowledge and Regain your spirit.
The key note speaker told us we were Super Heroes, and gave us some tips about Balance, Endurance, Strength and Flexibility, and she was not talking about the physical things those words mean; rather gave us suggestions on how to use these attributes in our busy lives.  The committee gave us a fun little Farm Fashion Show, and provided a Spa Night with various providers giving chair massages, facials and hand care.  Delicious meals and lunches were provided, and vendors were in attendance to answer a myriad of questions.  Hats off to the committee of women who worked so hard on this event!
