Six Month Anniversary #sts135 #NASATweetup

Six Months ago today was the most awesome of all days. With a 30% chance of a launch NASA was able to launch the Space Shuttle Atlantis to the International Space Station.

Getting to watch the launch was a dream come true, being a part of the #NASATweetup and getting to meet all of those amazing people was beyond words.

I want to once again say thank you to everyone at NASA especially Stephanie Schierholz and her entire crew for such an amazing two days. And now in just 18 days I will be off to Space Camp to attend my next tweetup. I can hardly wait!

Here are just a few of my favorite pictures from those two amazing days.
