I had not planned to go to BlogHer at all this year.
All along I was not going
but still asked Jen to save me a spot in the hotel room “just in case” because we had so much other stuff going on this summer.
But then as people started to show up on Wednesday and
Jennifer sent a picture of her and Melissa my Instagram and Twitter and Facebook feeds all filled up with ALL THE BLOGHER THINGS I started to get really sad. And REALLY wanted to go after all.
So… someone super awesome, who loves me lots made it happen. Because he is THE MAN.
(thank you, Honey for using miles so that I could get there to see my friends – you are the best!!!!)
It was a whirlwind trip, y’all.
I got there Friday afternoon and left Sunday morning. But it was enough time for me to hug and dance with and tear-up with and dine with some of my most favorite people on the planet.
What more could a blogging girl ask for?
a guaranteed ticket for next year, perhaps…?)
p.s. this post is super picture heavy because that’s what I do. I TAKE PICTURES.
(or I give the camera to someone else to take a picture with me in it)
Also, I saw lots of friends!! WOOHOO!
(by the way, this HUMONGOUS sign occupied our hotel room for the rest of the weekend)
I am so glad I went. It was a blast, as always.
In truth, the people I hung out with last weekend are some of my best friends. It doesn’t matter HOW I got to know them, but I am SO very thankful that I did.
And thanks to BlogHer for getting us together. And for free drinks.
Will I see YOU there next year?
p.s. if you need more convincing to go, see last year’s BlogHer post…
p.p.s. I do not talk about the sessions or the swag or the keynotes because those things do not mean as much to me as the PEOPLE. But if you have a question about any of that just ask!
