This will be my 3rd year and I still have no idea what I’m doing. I sit through a session and think at any moment someone’s going to figure out I really don’t know how to blog. I think, “I’m doing everything wrong.” Whatever that means… I go home and my husband encourages me to just do what I love…”Isn’t that why you started your blog anyway?” he says. “Yes”, I say and then I have to talk myself down from the cliff of comparing myself to everyone else. Everyone is unique AND at the same time the we’re all alike…which is why I love this community and go back every year to re-connect with friends.
Let me introduce you to my roomates this year: You know her as my fantabulous “Fairy Blog Mother” and she rocks the casbah! Her name is Carrie. We met because she needed a ride to Blissdom 2009. Nester emailed me and said “A girl in NC needs a ride, I don’t know where she lives…but FYI.” Low and behold she lives 15 minutes from me. I know she cringes every time she sees my number pop up on her caller i.d. I’ve almost stopped just showing up at her door unexpected for some blog emergency.
She really has become a great friend…a comrade in the Twilight series. Both of us lived in California and are always on the search for the best hole in the wall Mexican food joint. Carrie blogs at Koehmstedt and her Blog Design Site… Sweet Faerie Designs. If you’re like me and want to re-design your entire blog 2 weeks before Blissdom…she’s your go-to girl. Love her!
My other roomate is Chris from Celebrations at Home. She’s a party planner in the Richmond, VA area. Chris and I have known each other since 6th grade. We were roomates at ECU. She stumbled on my blog one day and we’ve chit chatted ever since. She has some fantastic budget friendly ideas on her blog. She also does custom inspiration boards for your party and has been featured on Virginia This Morning. Chris did a guest post here for a Cinco de Mayo Party I had.
And last, if you’re feeling like a 7th grade wall flower at a school dance…PLEASE go read Edie’s post from last year. It encapsulates how we all feel in a nutshell.
