This past weekend I had the pleasure of joining 15 other amazing Southern Bloggers in Atlanta for the 1st Annual Southern Blog Society Brunch. & let me tell you, it was an absolute blast! Bright & early Saturday morning Cathy of Poor Little It Girl & I flew to Atlanta to be greeted by two classy ladies -- Mandy & Jessica. We grabbed some lunch & relaxed for the afternoon.
I was blessed to be able to spend the weekend at Mandy's, curator behind Waiting On Martha. She was unbelievably hospitable & it was so nice to finally be able to meet this amazing woman IRL. Her home was gorgeous -- each room told it's own story. In the room where I was staying she put together a little treat & wrote me a sweet little note. It truly put a smile on my face.
This sweet thing in the picture above is Addison, Mandy's sweet pup. I seriously could not get enough of her cuddles & loved when she plopped on my bed to hang out.
Sunday came so quickly & it was more than amazing. We had some delicious food + some tasty sips while mingling with some fabulous ladies that we had been longing to meet IRL.
Cathy of Poor Little It Girl & Jessica of My Style Vita are the creators of the Southern Blog Society & these two fabulous ladies went over & beyond to make this event come to life. I truly admire their passion & kindness & am so happy that I got to know these ladies this past weekend.
Now Miss Julie Leah, my darling. She is the absolute sweetest & I am so excited that this girl will be in DC soon & I can not wait to hang out with her. If you don't read her blog, go now & say hi ... you won't regret it!
This is the sweet Mandy who so kindly put my up in her beautiful home. She became such a dear friend over the past weekend & truly enjoy our chats + girl time. I am (& N) are already looking forward to road tripping (gotta talk to our men!) with her & her sweet hubby Anthony. I am pretty sure N + Anthony are two peas in a pod. ha!
