Loved seeing Jenny upon my arrival at the hotel! I get to see her every week in Brooklyn, but there was something so nice about seeing friends from home at the conference. And, do you like our nearly matching jackets? So fun!
It was so great to reconnect with Brooke White and Summer Bellessa, the amazing women behind The Girls With Glasses Show. I met them last year at Alt, and I’m so happy that we’ve been able to stay in touch. I like them both so much.
This woman is Sheri Silver. She is an amazing force of good with an awesome blog. We’ve been on-line friends but have not yet met in person, so it was just wonderful to finally meet her. She lives in New York so I can’t wait to meet up with her soon. (She was actually born and raised in Brooklyn!)
I loved, loved, loved meeting so many of our dear readers. That really was one of my favorite parts of the whole experience. It was so nice of people to say hello and I’m so glad they did. Thanks to all of you!!! Here are two photos with two of them (above and below). I so wish I had gotten more photos!
I hope many of you already know Karen Walrond of Chookooloonks. This woman is incredible. I mean, one of the best you could find. She is doing so much good in the world. And it was so fun to hear that she knew about our blog! 🙂 🙂 Holy moly, I was so flattered.
And this one. Oh, Koseli. I love her so much. She felt like home away from home as she also lives in Brooklyn (see her awesome new blog here). We serve on the Relief Society presidency together and it’s a delight to work with her. She’s also a contributor for Design Mom. I must say, it’s so nice to have a blogging friend. We love sharing blogging tips with each other and plan to start up a mini blogging group in Brooklyn ASAP.
These two were super awesome. They’re some Irish wedding bloggers from One Fab Day and have made quite a name for themselves in Ireland, a place where wedding blogs are near non-existent. I just LOVED seeing so many women out there using their talents to make a living and doing what they love. SO INSPIRING!
Loved rocking Danny’s jeans (from Uniqlo, of course – his favorite store.) The key was rolling them up at the bottom – and then not zipping them, but just folding over the front for a tighter fit before belting it all together. Try it!
LOVED meeting the wonderful husband and wife behind Tiger in a Jar. They are filmmakers and create so much breathtaking beauty. Oh my.
Danny and I got to join Brooke & Summer for a late night dinner. Loved getting to spend some more time with them.
Anya! She’s from The New Diplomat’s Wife and has become one of my dear blogging friends. She is just wonderful and lovely in every way.
And yes – we all get so tired by the end that we just sit anywhere we can to rest. Here’s Brittany Watson Jepsen and another creative I’ve admired for so long, Eva, from Sycamore Street Press. I looove her taste and letter pressed designs. I’m telling you, I was in heaven meeting all of these creatives whom I consider some of the best ever.
Every where I turned, Danny was having great conversations with everyone around him, which was so sweet to see. It’s what he does best. He seriously loved being there. (photo by Brooke Dennis)
These two are the brains behind A Practical Wedding and gave one of the best classes at Alt. It was on Media Kits and the info. was sooo helpful. Meg said she might put the info. on her blog, which would be worth checking out, for sure. (photo by Justin Hackworth)
These two made me tear up. Gabrielle Blair and Sara Urquhart are sisters and the founders of Alt Summit. They could not have more support and love for creatives, bloggers, entrepreneurs, and well- if I had to guess – I think they have a soft spot for supporting women to do great things. They really are some of my heroes. I’m so thankful for all they’ve done for me and the blogging community. (photo by Karen Walrond)
