The Venue :: The Colorado Springs School

The Colorado Springs School graciously opened their doors on a Saturday morning and hosted all the beautiful moms in attendance.  The gym was a light and spacious setting for all our wonderful vendors to set up. After sifting through our many wonderful tables, we walked across the campus to lunch.
