Kentucky Blogger Meet Up!!

Happy Friday Friends! I cannot believe how quickly the summer is flying by! It seems like just yesterday I was packing up my room for the summer, and now it's time to start living there 24/7 just to get everything ready by open house!! However, I will say, even though the summer has gone by ridiculously fast I am almost ready to start getting back into a routine...*ALMOST*

This week I got the opportunity to help host the Kentucky Bloggers Meet Up in Louisville with Jessica from The Second Grade Nest , and first of all let me just tell you, I LOVE this girl! We had so much fun planning and organizing everything together! She is so sweet and super easy to get along with! Second, I got to meet some of the sweetest, funniest, most talented people and I am so thankful that blogging has allowed me to meet so many awesome new friends! It was also so fun to finally get to put faces with names and blogs that I have stalked followed for so long, and also to see some new faces and learn about new blogs I had not yet gotten the pleasure of stalking following! We started downtown on Tuesday evening, met at Hardrock Wednesday at Noon, and moseyed on over to Doc Crow's for dinner/late lunch at 3:30....Would you believe we stayed until 7:30???? I really enjoyed getting to know each and every one of these fabulous people. It was so cool to get to hear about and see so many different ideas, styles, and personalities. I will tell you one thing they each had in common though...TALENT! Each and every single one of them is extremely talented and their blogs/stores definitely show that!! Here is a list of the fabulous faces I got to meet so that you can go check them out too!! I am sure you will recognize quite a few of them!

  1. Hey girl! I hope you were able to recover from the meet up! You all did a great job planning and I was so glad to meet you.

    Someone recently nominated me for this award because I had less than 200 blog followers, so I am paying it forward and nominating you. See my post to see what you can do:
