Thank you so much for everything. I found the course to be very informative as well as fun. I am glad not to have to drive back and forth anymore and to have my Saturdays back to myself but I am a little sad not to see everyone again. I am very interested in your Restaurant Etiquette business as it is something I have always wanted to start. If you ever need help with anything please think of me.
Take care and keep in touch.
with love & peace,
