    I went to Spread the Love in Hartford. For those that are voting, even if you don’t win, you must go! It was awesome, and not only ‘business-changing’, but also has the potential to be life-changing. So, Justin and Mary, with that said, I vote for Honolulu, not b/c I live there (duh, I’m a CT native), but because I hope you can go and I can travel vicariously through your photos… :) –All the best!
