Kelly lives in South Carolina where she grew up; she married Ben, who also grew up there. They have a happy house and two sons—Cameron and Duncan.
The Live and Learn conferences were Kelly's idea and design, and several other conferences were spawned from that project, and generally follow her format and lovingly use L&L terminology ("funshop," "passion basket" and others).
Kelly's writing isn't constant but it's solid and she's my favorite kind of writer, which means (in my case) that she writes kinda like I do—straight and heartfelt.
If you want to read some of what Kelly has written and see some more images of her (taken by various others, as are those here; sorry for no photo credits but the Grand Canyon was Kelli Traaseth, I think), go to SandraDodd.com/kellylovejoy
If you want to wish her happy birthday and you're not a facebook friend of hers, you could leave a comment below and I'll send her the link.
Have a very merry birthday, Kelly,
and many happy birthdays to come!
