Oh my goodness! I can’t believe that the Haven conference has come and gone. It was a whirlwind, but this weekend was one of the best I can remember! I was having so much fun that I forgot to take pretty pictures so please enjoy all of the action shots! For those of you who don’t know, Haven is a DIY and home decor conference in Atlanta, GA. It is a time for bloggers in that genre to get together and laugh, learn and be with people who understand us. We meet with amazing brands and generally have fun until we are worn out!
This year, the Haven conference was sponsored by some amazing brands including Home Depot, Home Decorators Collection, La-Z-Boy and Moen, just to name a few. Moen always has a great shower booth set up. This is me and the ladies from The Crowned Goat having some fun! Singing in the shower, anyone?
On my first night there, I was able to reconnect with some blogger friends I met last year. And then I met them! You know, those people that just “get” you. That you know you will be friends with forever! I met Jen from The Striped House, Kristy from Robb Restyle and Erin and Tricia from Suburban Bitches. So much fun!
And I also met some of my blogging idols….. Ursula from Home Made by Carmona, Marian Parsons aka Miss Mustard Seed, Dusty from All Things G&D, Yvonne from Stone Gable and Karianne from Thistlewood Farms.
I met bloggers that I had only seen online…. now I met them in person and it was phenomenal! I was all “Oh, I know you!” even though I just know their blog. It’s all funny like that. But the next thing you know we are taking pictures and chatting about our cats.

Interacting with the sponsors was awesome and they were so generous. Just look at this “swag bag” that I was surprised with when I came back to my room Friday night. Home Depot is great!
A HUGE thanks to all of the Haven team for making it another wonderful conference! See you all in 2016!
