Dear Dolls,

Oh, it is just so good to be back with ya on stage! I missed seeing all youse smile while the pandemic had us locked away. BUT- we’re back dolls! Back and betta than eva as they say these days!

Now that we’re back to celebrating in-person it’s time to spread some Audacious Joy in ya lives. The easiest way to spread joy to those you love is to celebrate, the little things too, like good weather and personal accomplishments, not just birthdays and whatnot.

And youse already know when there’s a party there’s gotta be somethin’ to talk about, no entertainment and no party! Luckily I know a gal who will knock their socks off…

So dolls, next time youse are throwin’ a party, hosting a company retreat, or a school event, invite ya ol’ Aunt Lena for some added audacious joy! We’ve all been through lots these days and it’s time we make moments for joy.

Fabulous! She was the best emcee of any conference I’ve been to anywhere in the world … and I’ve been to a number.

Funny, and entertaining, kept us on time with grace. Very, very well done – and so professional! Loved it.
