The food was sweet

The the company was sweet

The strangers who helped us out of the ditch were sweet

My welcome home was sweet (PapaBear had left the light on for me & the door unlocked so I didn't have to fumbled with armloads of stuff to find my keys & Sam squealed & jumped into my arms)

The the bag of cookies I had forgotten I stashed in my pillowcase (and subsequently slept on Saturday night) taste very sweet as I reflect on what an amazing time I had spending about 24 hours with other bloggers, most of whom had never met in person before.


  1. It sounds great! I would love to attend a blog event like that! glad you had fun!

  2. It was so great to meet you. Sorry we had to scramble out before the picture! And I love your photo. Beautiful shot.
