Chandler Blogger Meet-Up

Yesterday I had the awesome opportunity to meet-up with sweet bloggers that were (mostly) in town for Creative Estates. Ilene, Kim, Sandy, Lindsay, Nicole, Moriah, and Scott & I met up in the lobby of their hotel in downtown Chandler and decided to head to a local Mexican restaurant, Serranos, for some dinner (well, for them at least, Scott & I are early birds and ate with my grandma at 5:30 haha).

I had such a wonderful time meeting everyone, and chatting about blogging and all it entails. Sitting in the restaurant with some of my favorite bloggers felt surreal, and a little overwhelming. I'm a pretty shy person in real life (or so I think so), so when I meet new people I try to overcome my shyness and just chat with them like I've known them forever (which with some of them was super easy because I had already "known" them for quite some time).

Before we left Scott grabbed a few quick shots of us girls. I know he took photos on some of the other ladies' cameras, so keep your eyes peeled for those around the blogosphere.

Here is Ilene and I:

Ilene was such a sweetheart and easy to talk to. She is absolutely darling, and I had such a fun time talking with her about life and blogging. I sure hope our path cross again in the future!

Here is Sandy and I:

Sandy was super sweet and great to talk to. It was so neat to finally meet her, as I adore her blog and shop. She also had an amazing camera that blew Scott and I away, and it was neat hearing about how she handles taking her daily outfit photos and scheduling blogs with her full-time job that takes her all over the country.

I feel so blessed lately to have had the opportunity to meet so many awesome bloggers! I just love the blogging community, and all the wonderful friends I've made because of it!

What are you up to today?
