A Friends "BloggersGiving"

Way back when 7 years ago when I first started a blog, I was really just starting to stay in touch with friends and family. I've always loved to write and share experiences plus I loved learning about other people's lives around the world. The blogging world just sort of fit and understood me.
Fast forward from a graduate student to a Mom of two kids, working two full time jobs ( and another side part time...I know I'm nuts ) and loving every minute- this little blog has really been through a lot. One of the main reasons I decided to take this blog and turn it into a side business two years ago was not just to make a small income but also to connect with other people. Isn't that the true heart of what blogging is? Connecting?
Since we moved to Atlanta three years ago, I've put myself out of my comfort zone and attended several different events, met with various bloggers and creative team members and made the most of every situation that's come my way. This past weekend, I got together with about 20 other Atlanta bloggers to have our first ever "FriendsGiving" at Chanel's home.

Truth: I have never laughed so hard, smiled so much and truly felt more in my element then with all these amazing woman. Blogging can be really tough as well as lonely. Getting out there, meeting and talking with the woman behind some of my favorite blogs and bouncing ideas off one another on potential campaigns and clients was inspiring as it was humbling. These woman sure know how to make everyone feel included regardless of how many followers you have on your Pinterest, Instagram or Twitter.

Thanksgiving is all about being thankful, counting your blessings and being in the moment. Sunday was exactly that. We all came together, brought a dish, sat around a gorgeous table and talked about everything, anything and life in general. I truly have never loved these woman more, been so inspired and felt more appreciated by a group of woman!
