a quick summit recap.

This weekend has been quite the whirlwind, and I am thrilled that I decided to go for it and attend the Healthy Living Summit.  It was wonderful to feel a part of a community of health-minded women not just over the internet, but face to face.  Thanks for inspiring me to blog, girls.

Saturday was filled with many informative speakers who covered a wide array of topics, from a stirring speech on organic farming to details about eco-friendly beauty.  The summit committee shared a great deal of behind the scenes blog info, as well as much of their own experiences with health, fitness, and fitting it all in.  I have much to share about what I learned and was moved by, and I’ll post my thoughts in more depth over the coming week.  Stay tuned!

In the meantime, a photo recap of the fun…

I was lucky to room with two beautiful bloggers, Chandra and Rose:

And we ended up with wonderful Wisconsin “suitemates,” Melissa and Renee.  I think we coined ourselves the fab five?  It was a good time.

We began and ended the weekend by displaying a healthy balance:

The summit began with a cocktail party, where I caught the tweeting bug with Meghan:

And laughed with many bloggers like Whit:

We were provided with a breakfast of perfection, courtesy of Stonyfield and MixMyGranola:

And I created an equally delicious lunch from the healthy buffet:

We even got an afternoon snack (not to mention an amazing amount of swag, part of which got my grumbling stomach through the morning):

I saw food bloggers in action:

And visited a Boston essential:

I enjoyed the summit speakers very much, but I truly loved getting to know the other bloggers in person.

Thanks to Caitlin, Heather, Jenna, Kath, Meghann, and Tina for organizing such a successful event, and thanks to all the other bloggers (and readers!) for welcoming a newbie like me.  I had a fantastic weekend!

  1. Sounds like so much fun was had! Can’t wait to hear more details on your thoughts of the whole event. I’m really intrigued by what the organic farmer had to say.
    Also, the catering looks amazing! I mean, we wouldn’t expect anything less, I guess!! Awesome treats though – and so cool you got to room with other bloggers!

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful time! I’ve read a lot of the day to day recaps by other bloggers (which were all very fun) and would like to know more about your thoughts.
