ALT-Bound

I’m headed to Altitude Summit in Salt Lake City (long for ALT) next week and I am beyond excited…and nervous. It’s basically the creative blogger’s Mecca. All sorts of famous bloggers and not-so-famous bloggers come together and totally geek out over each other. AND another really fabulous part about ALT is all of the sponsors. They are there looking to meet bloggers and work out collaborations. For small business owners, this is killer. Companies like Bing or La Crema wouldn’t give me two seconds on the phone, but at ALT I have the opportunity to meet them and show them how totally rad and charming I am. Right?!

This will be my first year attending, hence the nervousness, so I’m not totally sure what to expect. I do know that I’m looking forward to rooming with Amy Ehmann from Design Lotus (she’s so talented I hope some rubs off on me!); seeing some sweet friends like Josie Parsley of Fraser & Parsley, Rachel Shingleton of Pencil Shavings Studio and Whitney English; and meeting all sorts of new wonderful, beautiful women who share the same love of creating pretty things. And honestly, getting to dress up a little for people who will appreciate it. My littles just can’t grasp how fab my forest green skinnies are with my new suede black booties. I keep trying but they keep not caring. Olivia’s all like “Yeah, that’s great – what did you get me?” and before I can turn around Wyatt is trying to climb in the bathtub. A day in the life, y’all…

My mantra for the week: Soak it all up. There are some AH-mazing speakers, roundtables and design camps which means I’m going to be learning a lot and when I get home my brain may need a little vacation. But I’ll also be totally fired up and ready to get this party started!

Warning: I will definitely be blowing up your feeds with some ALT awesomeness while I’m there next week and most likely again in a couple of weeks with an ALT recap or two along with shoppe news. Stay tuned, loveys!
