Pleeeeeeease forgive me for getting this post up so late today. Even a Superhero gets tied up sometimes. Lucky for me, I was tied up with family enjoying a beautiful Colorado weekend!
Last week I had the opportunity to remove my mommy hat and put on my dancin' shoes when I joined the Mile High Mamas at the lovely Warwick Hotel in Denver for a blogger get-together. There was yummy food, a wine tasting, some great prize give-aways and, best of all, the opportunity to meet the authors of some of the fabulous blogs that I read. I thought you might like to meet them too!
There I am on the end (left my cape at home that night!) with Amy, Heather, Nicole, Melissa, Julie and Alison, who are also known as:
- Amy = Crunchy Domestic Goddess - If you haven't joined Amy's Ditch the Disposables Challenge for 2009, go do it now! She had almost 150 participants in the challenge last year and is aiming for 200 this year.
- Heather = A Mama's Blog - Heather, who beat thyroid cancer earlier this year, felt the event was a catharsis that helped her shift from cancer patient to cancer survivor. Not only is she that, but I found her to also be a pretty cool chick.
- Nicole = Feeding Time at the Zoo - I'm so glad that I got to meet Nicole. Her
zoohouse sounds a lot like mine, only she finds the time to cook, take amazing photographs, and blog eloquently about it all.
- Melissa = NatureDeva - I hadn't seen Melissa's blog before either, but am loving it now. She is a Reiki Master, Nutrition Consultant and Herbalist whose blog is very insightful and packed full of excellent information. I'm looking forward to learning from her backyard chicken adventure!
- Julie = Terminal Verbosity - You may remember Julie from her old/other blog Chez Artz. She's also my partner in crime for the Colorado APLS group. Julie is so full of life and energy and wit. It was great to finally meet her in person. She's a wonderful writer, Master Gardener, and knows just about everything about canning and preserving food.
- Alison = Green Me - Alison writes about food, vegan cooking, being a mom, and just all things green. She's also started Conundrum Cupcakery where makes vegan cupcakes. Yum!
I think that blogging and social networking online come easily because I can stop and think about what to say. Meeting all these folks in person definitely took me out of my comfort zone, but I'm so glad that I went and can't wait for the next event!
