Design Blogger Meet Up Recap

I'm so excited to share our blogger meet up with you! I was beyond excited to meet my closest blogging buddies.  It's so funny how it felt like we'd been friends forever.  Such a blessing!

Here's the recap:

First we met up for drinks!  And by that I mean I had a Shirley Temple. For reals. You can see my glass on the table full of cherries (:
 Me, Michelle {Ten June}, Courtney {A Thoughtful Place}, Natasha {Schue Love}, Tori {An Apple a Day}

Next up, I drove us {in my new car!} to the San Francisco Design Center for the meet up:

Court rode shot gun!

I want to thank Malka from Closet Innovations, who hosted the fabulous event! What a blast it was.

Me, Natasha, Michelle, Tori, Mackenzie {Design Darling}, Cristin {Simplified Bee}, Kate {Centsational Girl}

I also got to meet the amazing girls behind Rue Magazine, who just launched another issue TODAY!

Michelle, Erica {Moth Design}, and Courtney {Courtney Out Loud}
I had so much fun talking to may recognize her from Design Inc. on HGTV (: I just loved learning about design and how to talk to your clients through her.  She's such a wonderful talent and such a source of inspiration to me!  Courtney was awesome, too! What a ball of energy.  He's got some crazy good design skills, too!

 Cristin and I. 
I just adore her.  I'm so glad I'm able to be interning with her this summer. We just "get" each other (:

M & M

Natasha, Michelle, Me, & Courtney.

I can't say enough good things about these girls.  They're like long lost sisters. We laughed so hard, created many inside jokes, and bonded so quickly.  I miss them already and am so looking forward to the next time we can meet up again.
Thank you, blogging, for allowing me to meet these wonderful friends (:

Will be sharing more from my weekend with Michelle later this week!
Happy Monday,
