Last week was a whirlwind! I was in Atlanta for the wonderful Haven Conference, I don't go to many blogging conferences, but honestly? This one was fabulous! Maybe because I had the best roommate in the world:
That's Cyndi Spivey from Walking in Grace and Beauty. Cyndi is a fashion blogger, so she styled me for the conference. How's that for a deal? I wish I'd had her do my make-up!
Here I am wearing a chevron dress that Cyndi accessorized for me. I had no idea what to wear with such a bold pattern, but she knew!
Cyndi also tried to teach me how to pose for a photo. I need more practice, for sure. Here are several of us, all trying to strike the "Cyndi pose":
You may recognize Ginny from Organizing Home Life, Leanne from Organize and Decorate Everything, and Becky from Organizing Made Fun. I figured that if I hung out with organizing bloggers, perhaps some of their expertise might rub off on me. I'll let you know if it works.
I didn't get many photos of the conference organizers, but here's a pic of me with Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick. Such a lovely person inside and out. Let's pretend that the fuzziness of the photo is just a soft focus effect, okay?
And of course I had to get a pic with Traci from Beneath My Heart, one of my dearest blogging friends.
Bottom line? The conference was awesome. The speakers were excellent, the workshops were fantastic, the parties were fun, the sponsors were incredibly generous. In the end, though, the very best part was simply getting to hang out in person with these lovely women who have become my friends. The Haven Conference was such a blessing to me. I thank God for the opportunity to be there!
Have you ever attended a blogging conference? If so, what did you think?
