#BlissDom part 3 - Connections & Photos

Whoooooo hoo!  You're probably all getting way sick of my BlissDom posts, right? Well good news for you, this is the last one. ;-)

After I outted myself and my insecurities in my last Bliss post, I thought I would follow that up with a positive and happy post about all of the amazing connections I made as a result of opening myself up and putting myself out there!

{thank you One2One Network for this awesome headshot!}
So despite my nervousness, I am so happy to say that I have made some genuine and life-long friends! There's something about hanging out with bloggers... it's different. It's awesome. There is a sense of sisterhood and unity. Bloggers understand other bloggers on a level that non-bloggers can't. And to be in a room with 800 like-minded people?? Incredible. Overall, am very pleased with my experience at BlissDom 2013. Would I recommend other bloggers go? Yes, yes, and YES again.

I did not bring my DSLR camera, and although I wish I had better pictures than I what I took on my iPhone, I think it's a good thing I left the big gun at home. My shoulders were already aching from all of the notebooks, iPad, books, swag and other misc. things I was carrying around, a big 'ol camera would have made it worse for sure. So you'll have to bear with me through all of my not-so-great iPhone shots. And also?? I didn't get nearly as many pictures as I wanted. I met so many amazing people, wish I could have documented it all.

So here we go and in really no particular order!

 My roommates: Mindi, Sarah & Meagan.

Me and the minion. ;-) Can't wait for Despicable Me 2 to come out!

Girls Night Out, the amazing speaker/author Jon Acuff & Chris Mann (Finalist on The Voice).

The stars of  All My Children!

Looking at these pictures, I can fondly remember conversations I had with each of these people!!!  And I will miss ALL of them so much. There are also so many people I didn't get a photo with, but had such a great time meeting. To name a few: Stephanie T, Megan S, Taylor, Nancy, Allison H, Molly, Mandy, Rachel, Ashley, Candace, Natalie, and so so so many more! 

I'm thankful for all of the friendships I made during my weekend in Dallas! And while I'm undecided about BlissDom 2014, I do know that I will always keep in contact with the ladies I met this year!

Until next time...

Love your recap and I am so happy that I got to meet you and get to know you!!

Natalie said...

Is it sad that I'm sad there's no picture of me included?? Yes, I'm a blogger and I like to see pictures of myself spread throughout the internet. Shoot me. Ha!

Jokes aside, I LOVED hanging out with you Saturday night. I wish we had talked sooner.
