I’m headed to Alt Summit this week. It will be my first time attending the design bloggers’ conference. In fact, it will be my first time attending a bloggers’ conference, period. #blogconferencevirgin
I’m super excited but, honestly, I’m crazy scared too. There is a lot of hype over fancy business cards and fashionable outfits but I’m way more focused on learning something new and stepping outside of my comfort zone. For years, I’ve wanted to go but I always have an excuse. The money! The kids! The weather! The timing! I won’t know anyone! When tickets went on sale last summer, I forced myself to buy one.
The timing is less than perfect. Steve is out of town on business this week. My kids had yet another snow day today. I need to run a few last minute errands (with three kids of course!) but the driveway needs cleared and I can’t even see our road. I’m scrambling to pack and arrange childcare. The logistics of everything has my head spinning. At times I’ve thought, “Ugh. It would be so much easier to stay home.” If you’re a parent, I’m sure you can relate.
But I know that life’s most wonderful experiences rarely come easily. So I’m forging on and feeling lucky that these little things are my “big” problems. I mean, I will be staying in a hotel room WITHOUT KIDS for three nights so…that’s pretty much a vacation in my book.
I will be posting to instagram from Alt if you want to follow along!
