The Influence Conference

I am super excited to be attending The Influence Conference in Indy in about five weeks. It's a blogging conference and a first of it's kind for me. A dear friend surprised me with a ticket to go. Amazing.



There's an assignment been given to the ladies who will be attending so we can all get to know each other before I actually get to know each other. Ha. Brilliant, right?

So here it goes. 
3 get-to-know-me items // 
  • I have lived in 5 states in the past 10 years. I love change and I love the excitement and new things that come with moving. Although I never like saying good-bye to good friends and family. 
  • I cannot accurately express my love for Starbucks Chai Lattes. Hot or cold. I would drink one every day if they weren't so expensive and they didn't make my heart flutter so much. 
  • In "dreamland" I want to be a professional snowboarder. 

2 things you're looking forward to about the conference //


  • Learning about how to be a more strategic blogger and also how to be a better writer. 
  • Meeting lots of new women. I love hanging out with women and making new friends. I'll be coming to the conference by myself but I ain't scared. And beware all, I like to ask a lot of questions. 

1 thing you can't leave home without //

  • My iPhone. Sad I know. I may eventually need some therapy.
