Things I loved about this weekend:
Creativity - the name badges were amazing - every one different - I love how put to the same task we each produce something unique, original and with our own stamp on it. I'll be pinning as many as I see in photos onto the pinterest board I created for ideas. Let's inspire the world!
I'm going to take some pics of mine later in the week - here's one of our award winners though:
Inclusiveness - if I could choose a 'theme' that I wanted most for this weekend (and my life!) it would be inclusiveness. I was so, so proud of the way each woman there chose to talk, connect, include, notice others. I have no doubt that comes from a place of beauty inside you.
Enthusiasm - some people do enthusiasm quietly (we all know that isn't me) but... every time, every challenge, every opportunity - wide open embrace. Even under extreme duress on the dance-o-mat!! I love that people came ready for all of it and by doing and trying and having a go you created an atmosphere of enthusiasm.
Deb and I - enthusiasm plus!! :o)
There are a million other things I loved.... namely talking to you, meeting you, seeing some bloggers again, putting a face/name to a blog, having some of you stay over, having some of you visit my place, learning some new stuff, getting a goodie bag and 3 wonderful swap partners..... yeah there is more too but mainly it's people and you are all so pretty - even more pretty than your photos had me believe you were.
I'm sure there are going to be some more posts to come... but this is my first off.... 'oh I loved it' reflections...
Sending you all an enormous, safe-for-non-huggers, cyber squeeze.
and stealing all my photos from others because I didn't pull my camera out once the whole weekend. (too busy talking loudly) do add your shots to the drop box too - thanks so much to all who have shared
