Two weeks ago, I had the chance to gather with my people in Brooklyn, NY. Bloggers and makers and lovers of design came together for the annual Better Homes and Gardens Stylemaker event. It’s simultaneously inspirational and aspirational as friends and mentors and style leaders come together to teach, laugh and share stories.
For those of you who’ve been with me from the ugly beginning, you may have heard me reference the Haven Conference. I heard about the conference about two months into my blog and couldn’t wait to attend some ten months later. It’s a conference specifically for DIY/ Home Decor bloggers and when I first went, I pretty much learned that I was 0 for 10 when it came to my blog. Three years later, I’m still going and… I’ve learned a few tricks and gained a TON of friends!
I don’t normally post on Fridays, but I wanted to hop in to give you a Home and Family update since I have been SO touched by the outpouring of support and votes and shares and love from my readers, friends and family! I’m bummed but not surprised to tell you guys that they announced that Jeremy Rabe (aka the FYI Guy) will be moving forward to the next round. For anyone foolish enough to watch my Facebook live Bottletalks each night, you already knew this, but I wanted to share here publicly for those of you who missed it.
