And holy crap, my brain is FULL.
Full of new knowledge, new ideas, new inspiration.
And my heart?
EVEN MORE FULL!
Full of new friends, new connections, new inspiration.
(Are you gagging right now? Please don't. It's totally true. I'm gushing.)
So I definitely need a few days to process before I start pontificating on the meaning of
But I won't leave you hanging until then. I took a few pics and there are TONS more (better ones) on the Blissdom '10 Flickr site.
First of all, my roomie, Ms. Playgroupie herself! (Babble Top 50, yo!) How cute (and like totally famous on the internet) is she?! Lemme just say, we CLICKED immediately (like we knew we would) and it was like I found my long lost sister. I miss her already.
And then there was her. Miss Paula. My Midwest twin. We may or may not have done (lame drunken attempts at) cartwheels in the hotel lobby at an ungodly hour. I'll never tell. And besides that? Paula totally resembles one of my IRL friends. (Hi Jodie!)
When Harry Met Sarah: Yes, I got a picture taken with him. Yes, HE HAD HIS ARM AROUND ME. YES, THE CAPS LOCK IS JUSTIFIABLE HERE.
Erin from The Vintage Pearl. Please tell me you've visited her site?! She takes amazing pictures and creates the most precious jewelry!
My roomie Jennifer and Amy (whom I've met before!) talking photog lingo (and blocking my view of Harry, dammit!)
My fellow seatmates on the flight home from Nashville: The fabulous Audrey (of course we chatted about little boys) and and my new friend Jennifer.
And then there was The Nap Warden. We laughed together. A lot. She, Jennifer and I thought of extremely witty new tag lines for our blogs. With only a little help from the alcohol we were drinking.
And Shannan who graciously let me crash the Ohio bloggers dinner.
And Rebecca who possesses my favorite blog header of late and who is quiet, yet sneakily hilarious.
And Angry Julie who yes, does get kinda angry when she can't have her Monster energy drink.
And everyone else I met and haven't mentioned. It was soooo lovely to meet you. And you. And you! Truly.
Like I said, deep thoughts to come. Pinky swear.
