Before I forget I wanted to share a few quick links with you all about my exciting time at Mixed Conference last month in the beautiful mountains of Pembroke, Virginia at Mountain Lake Hotel!

 

I first shared about Mixed on this episode of Around the Kitchen Sink Radio  (and this blog post) and then after I got back in this episode with Linda Wallace of Red Gold Tomatoes!

Waiting for me in my room :)

It was like one long, educational, sleepover! I finally got to meet SO many of the wonderful girls I have been ‘virtual friends with’ online! I miss them already :)

    Didn’t we just have a blast? Mixed was fabulous–I’d definitely do it again. It was such a pleasure to finally meet in person. You are the sweetest person ever. Hear that Basilmomma Readers? Heather is the Real Deal. Love her!

    Miss you girls like crazy! I think we need bi-monthly cross-country sleepover weekends.
