Blissdom - what is that?
That is the question I have gotten in my real life.
My answer before going was simply a blogging conference.
My answer after going is
At Blissdom I was able to connect with, talk with, laugh with and even cry with other women who are creative, wise, giving and beautiful.
Women who were more than willing to welcome strangers, who were giving of their knowledge and support.
I am proud to be apart of this group of amazing women.It would take me time and words that I do not have
to fully explain my experience.
I will however give you a glimpse into my time there.
What a blessing it was to spend time with these ladies. Edie was top of my list of people to meet, I had some very important letters to deliver to her and can I just say she is courageously vulnerable personified.
Can you tell how tired I am, this was the last day and I was wiped out.
Kellie ad Lisa were my my roomies and they were perfect. I love them both dearly and know this is not the only time I will spend with them.
Cyndi and I have been online friends for a some time now and it was an honor to meet her in person. She is just as spunky as I thought she would be.
Of course you all know Jen from Tatertots and Jello she is incredibly sweet, and Beckie from Infarrantly Creative is such a hardcore crafter she brought crafts to work on in her room.This was the first night we were all fresh and excited.
These girls were all so fun to hang out with
I stole this picture from Gina, I am so glad she took it.
These two women have invaded my soul and changed my heart.
If you don't know them you should, I watched each of them care for other women day after day.
They are not just words they are actions, and I am blessed to call them friends.
I met many other wonderful women, women that I did not get pictures of (I was a bad blogger and did not take many pictures).
I met Myra from My Blessed Life, she is lovely.
I met this mother and daughter, they were so open and fun
I met Mrs. Q from Fed Up With Lunch, she is very interesting and I love her blog.
Then there is Lorie from Be Different Act Normal, I am her favorite paper craft bracelet taper, she made me laugh more times than I can count.
I am going to use her own word to describe Kate from Southern Belle Simple because they are perfect...
utterly southern...elaborately simple
The picture I am most sad to not have is one with Shannan from Flower Patch Farmgirl she is Hospitality.
On Friday morning there was a group of us who woke up early to meet in the Incourage suite and pray for one another....it was beautiful
These are a few of the women I met there
who BTW just lives down the road from me, how weird is that to go to a different city to meet someone from your area.
I will leave you with this one last dorky photo of me so you can see how goofy I looked most of the time.
