elevate conference 2014

Elevate blog conference was AMAZING! I had a blast. Can I tell you the truth? When I’m asked to speak at a conference I get so excited. Then as the conference gets closer I get SO NERVOUS. The morning of the conference I wanted to run and hide under blankets. But I put on my brave face and jumped in. This group of ladies was kind, honest and basically amazing. I made so many new friends. It was fabulous to spend a day connecting–not just on a surface level but actually getting to go deeper. So good for my soul. I have lots of pics to share with you!

That’s Cassaundra from The Blue Closet and Ashley from Little Miss Momma. Beautiful inside and out!

Me with Alissa from Diary of an Addict.

Chrissy from Let Me See You Sparkle and Stephanie from Life Created did a fun session on photography.

Fiskars was a sponsor and they gave each of us a pair of scissors which I was probably waaay too excited about. But aren’t good scissors just awesome?!

These garlands from Aidie’s Hideway are TOO AMAZING! And affordable!

Cell phone pics galore!

These bags!!! Just stop what you’re doing and go shop Sage & Harper. They are beautiful. And Ali, the creator is the SWEETEST. I love her.

My heart melted instantly melted with sweet baby Johnny.

New friends, old friends. Isn’t it wonderful to just get to know people? It stretches me but I love it.

These hoops by Blue Without You. I die. Love love love.

Smiles, dimples and again, a heart melted.

The warm glow of the sunset. I didn’t want it to end!

Alissa from The Printed Palette is an inspiration to me.

There were so.many.amazing women there. I wish I could tell you about each and every one and how they touched my heart and made me thankful to be part of this community. The conference fed my soul.

Have you been to a gathering or conference lately? Did it stretch you in good ways?
