It's not very often an event comes along that gets you really 'really' excited and makes you think 'I have to be part of that!'.
Well that is exactly what happened last Autumn when Kat and Kat announced they were going to combine their super powers and launch 'Blogtacular'.
I just knew right from that moment 'I was in'.
I didn't care I hadn't thought it through and I didn't know I would be moving the very next day...after the event and that I probably wouldn't know a soul. Or that for a small girl in a big city it was a pretty big deal for me, but.....!
I had my golden ticket (in a Charlie kind of way) and that was that...I just had to go.
So go I did! And what an fabulous weekend I had. I knew I would.
My face may of ached by smiling stupidly all weekend and I may of been too shy to just rock up and say 'hello'...and I may of babbled ridiculously when spoken to and exclaimed - a fair few times - how very excited I was to be there. But do you know what 'I don't care!'.
When Blogtacular asked me what I wanted to achieve from the weekend my reply was somewhere along the lines of 'just to sit in a room with a whole heap of people that inspire me'.
I think I achieved that....in bucketfuls and got to hang out with some pretty lovely folks.
Hello to :: Steph at Curlew Country / Claire at Maybush Studio / Hayley at Shutterflies / Mary-Ellen at Hop Interiors / Emma Davis at Love your Pics / Lottie at Oyster and Pearl / Laura at Circle of Pines / and of course Xanthe Berkley for putting on a most fabulous photo walk - it was awesome.
And of course to anyone else I met or admired from a far *big waves* - I'm not a push to the front kind of gal, more a stand at the back and blend into the crowd.
This was our weekend captured by the super talented Kat Molesworth - here's to the next one.
