Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending an awesome blogger conference right in my own backyard! Well maybe a little further than my backyard, but it was close and amazing and awesome and fun...you get the picture...actual location; Newport Dunes! Have you been there? If not I highly recommend a visit...SOON! We were welcomed to the conference with this beautiful view...aaahhhmazing!
Myself and all of these amazing women were able to spend the day together as we laughed, listened and learned!
All made possible because of these three women! Summer at Made by Munchies' Mama Jen at Delightful Deets and Nicole at Yeung Mother Hubbard! Be sure to pop by their blogs to learn just how cool and creative they truly are...besides being masters of a perfectly planned event that featured so many wonderful and inspiring things packed into an uplifting and elevating day!
I was touched by these beautiful young women who opened their hearts and shared their blogging journey with us!
Pop by their blogs and check out their logs!
I'm sure you'll find it hard to leave as they have a lot to share and true blogging flair!
And as if that wasn't enough there was so much more, once we walked through the door!
There were treats and sweets...snacks galore!
Amazing crafts...the kind that don't bore!
We hammered our hearts out by the shore!
Anchors away string art on a sunny day!
We made shoes for Sole Hope, an important cause!
A reminder of how we can help just a little to heel world flaws!
We shared tips and tricks of the blogging trade.
Friendships rekindled and new ones made!
The swag that we received was beyond the moon.
So many awesome goodies, it made me swoon!
It was a day I'll remember for a long, long time
Joyful, tearful (in a good way), and oh so sublime!
I left inspired to continue to blog
To share my thoughts, dreams, art...my creative log.
And from this day these words from my muse, Dr. Seuss...came to mind!
“Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
and just one more thing that has a nice ring!
To thine self be loyal and always true!
Thanks Summer, Jen, and Nicole for such an awesome and uplifting experience!
eleVate was GREAT!
And to Lora Knight Photography for providing amazing pix and poses for us to share!
A special thanks to these amazing sponsors for all of the food, fun, and SWAG!
