Back From BlogHer: It's Always Good To Be Home



I'm back from BlogHer, the world's largest social media conference for women, which was held in the great city of Chicago this year. It was a thrill to present a session with Erin Margolin, and meet amazing women I've long admired like Cheryl Contee, co-founder of Jack and Jill Politics.

It was the best BlogHer conference yet BUT as wonderful and full of laughter and friends as it was, I'm counting my lucky stars that I get to return to a place that makes me say It's so good to be home.

It is. And I'm grateful for the little one that missed me to the point of tears, and the bigger ones that missed me right back, giving me a lump in my throat every morning when I called home and heard their voices that suddenly sounded deeper than I remember them.

I am a lucky woman, indeed.


**Returned home from BlogHer to a few unsettling items like a meat thermometer on the kitchen counter and a stapler in the bathroom. Figuring 'tis better to not even ask... the children were alive, only a few pounds lighter, and semi-clean. What else could a mother ask for.

Looking to read just a little bit more? I'm proud to be featured today on mommy.com tips, with the results of my well documented day via cyber surveillance of how I spend my time. Captivating, to say the least. 

Still dying for more? How about "My First Love," on Purple Clover, a new site I'm head over heels over. Come check it out and see what I mean.
 
Thank you!!

  5. Funny funny. Yes, it's better not to ask questions if all the parts are intact when you return from a trip.

    Glad BlogHer went well!
