I went to BlogHer in July, getting to spends lots of quality girl time with Ashley of My Front Porch Swing(middle) and Kristen(left, who stopped blogging, but is one of my favorite people). Plus a whole bunch of other amazing blog friends.

In August, we attended the Family Forward retreat at Universal Studios. This was the highlight of my family's YEAR. My boys are still talking about everything we did.

  • The Social Media Pass If we get enough “likes” or “me, too”‘s after sharing something on social media, does that exempt our bad behavior?
  • It Gets Easier If you’ve ever had someone tell you “just you wait, this is the easy part” when you were dealing with a rough day with your baby or toddler, this post is for you.

  7. I would love to go to BlogHer in CA in 2014, but I know I can’t. Also, it would scare the hell outta me! But I would like to at least have the opportunity at some point.

    Nice to catch up again here, it’s been a terribly long time since I’ve stopped by but I think of you often. How were the holidays?? Hope you enjoyed a very merry Christmas with your family! 

    Also, I’d love one year to attend BlogHer, too, but yea–the size is definitely intimidating for sure. Off to read your recap now. XOXO
