blissdom 2011.

We had a great time at Blissdom.
JuneAnne (left) and Jill (right) came with me this year,
(Jill runs the "business" side of things
while JuneAnne runs the "production" side,
these are "my girls!"),
and the 3 of us have so much fun together-
I'm so blessed to have such great friends working with me!

We were at the amazing Opryland hotel,
Brene Brown was the inspiring keynote speaker,
and heard Mat Kearney sing (he's one of my faves!).

We met new blogging friends,
including Katie, Mique, Jessica
(we even layered allora handmade necklaces with ours, so cute!),
Kelly, tip junkie...

Creative Kristi (above), Dee, Hillary, Kristi,
Shannon, Aimee, Ruthanne...

I got a kiss on the cheek from The Nester,
chatted with Melissa,
a hug from Gussy...
and many others-
unfortunately there were lots of others I wanted to meet,
but didn't have the chance to,
maybe next year :)

While I was gone Ryan and my Dad tag-teamed the kids-
Ryan took them to school and my Dad picked them up
(thank you Dad!)

Ryan texted me a pic of the kids about to head to school the first morning I was gone-
they were all showered, dressed and fed- impressive!
Ryan had Tessa picked out all of Eden's outfits while I was gone,
wonder what those outfits looked like :)

the picture of the 4 kids is precious!
I am giving a pair of bunny tutu legwarmers away on my blog, and they would be so cute on Eden. You should enter!

I am sure that everything was perfect while you were gone and the fact that he kept four kids and got them out the door and to school on time--dressed--is amazing and you need to be thankful. Which you did say you were. I see where my order has been shipped and wish I had known that special was coming cause buddy, I would have waited. Looks like you guys had an awesome time. Tell me where your store is!!

Erin, I can't tell you how much I loved chatting with you and your girls. Thank you for the encouragement and inspiration with my journal business.

I got several compliments on my bliss necklace while I was in town yesterday. I happily passed your name right along!

Thanks for everything.
