Well this is the week. The week of Blissdom. Hopefully y’all aren’t sick of hearing about it yet. But, I’m ready and expecting good things to happen this week. I am extremely excited to meet my online friends, and make new friends. I don’t want it to feel cliquish and don’t want anyone to feel left out. I am new to this blogging thing too like many of you are, and some of you are even veteran bloggers. Regardless of how many followers you have, how many views you get on your site a day, how many times you’ve been featured, we all share the same passion and bring something unique to the table with our blogs and online shops. Even though blogging can unfortunately feel competitive at times, we need to remember this: Psalm 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” We are all different and special, and God doesn’t care how big or small our blogs are. Love the gifts that He’s already given you, and embrace your uniqueness.
Okay, so that intro wasn’t anything like I had originally planned in my head, but it just came to me while writing, so I’m believing there was a reason for it. :)
Now for more Blissdom talk. I wanted to show you a few things that I’ll be taking with me…some fun things.
That’s my clutch (used as wallet), list taker to jot down notes, and a little wallet for my business cards all from Knitty Bitties. I LOVE her stuff.
Here are what my business cards look like in case you are interested. I just love them and they are front and back.
Cute right? You all know how much I love mustard and gray. :)
And Knitty Bitties saved the day and is sending me this camera strap, which I should have today!
So cute. Love you Andrea!
I won’t be taking much jewelry with me, but I will be sporting this necklace that Lisa Leonard made for me.
That’s one of my very favorite necklaces. And I SO cannot wait to meet Lisa!
I will also be sporting these cuties…
Those are the ruffled scarves from The Pleated Poppy. Love them! And yes, I’ll be in regular clothes and not sweats as I lazily modeled here. But I can’t wait to meet Lindsey too!
And for most of the time while in Nashville, I’ll just be in jeans and these…
Gotta have the boots right? Both pairs are flats too and extremely comfortable. I hear you do a lot of walking at the hotel and that it’s huge? So nope, no crazy heels for me. I don’t think I could even walk in heels anymore. I wear flip flops every.single.day.
And I know I’ll be thinking about this little one the entire time.
She always sucks her thumb and touches her ba-ba, a/k/a belly button at the same time. Isn’t that funny? Or weird? I think it’s funny and she does it ALL the time. :)
So that’s about it. I can’t wait to see all of you that are going to Blissdom. It’s going to be so great. Just look for the girl wearing the boots and the cute scarves. Oh wait, that will be pretty much everyone there. :)
I have a few great guests to keep you entertained while I’m gone this week, including the witty and beautiful Cassie from Hi Sugarplum! and the lovely and talented designer, Emily A. Clark. You will love them.
