Sometimes there’s nothing like a trip to the farmer’s market on a nice weekend afternoon. It’s such a wonderful mood lifter. These pictures are actually about two weeks old and are from our recent trip to get some color for our patio. But the shots came out so beautifully on my new camera, I had to share. Enjoy and I hope this inspires you as it did me!

NC Blogger’s Meetup!

April 18, 2012

This Sunday I had the pleasure of meeting other local NC bloggers at Benelux in Raleigh for a good old fashioned meet up. The event was organized by Kate, Lauren, and Carrie of The Small Things Blog, From My Grey Desk, and Chasing Big Dreams, respectively. I’m a recent follower of Kate, who you may recognize from her viral hair tutorials on Pinterest, and considering my blog is about one month old, the timing of this way perfect. However, I was nervous. In the days leading up to the event the thought of bailing and staying home with a movie and some good wine crept into my head many times. I kept thinking, “Is my baby blog really up to snuff?” Luckily my attention span is short and before I really answered this question, I was on to thinking about other things, like dinner or what to wear tomorrow.

So, finally, Sunday came. I had dance practice in the early afternoon that ran over, so I had to run home and feverishly get ready. I thought, “Oh no. Things are already starting to go awry!” But made up, dressed, and ready to mingle, I jumped into my car 30 minutes later and headed North. 90 mins after that, I was lost in downtown Raleigh. Stupid Google Maps! Street names changed spontaneously as I was on them. Rights were demanded going in the wrong direction on one way streets. And I was directed to drive directly into buildings. No lie. It was a hot mess of direction. Aaaaaand, my battery was almost dead. PERFECT. But somehow I spied Benelux on my third or fourth loop around the same block and turned navigation off before I threw my whole phone out the window.

Parked, nervous, and still minorly irritated from my navigation disaster, I walked into Benelux…. and my anxiety faded. Smiling faces, high pitched shrieks of “Hi!”, and the sound of coffee being made was all around me. Cute bikes were perched on the wall, piquing my triathlete sense, and cute bright outfits were abound. It totally took my mind off the first part of my day.

So, I got a smoothie. Sat. Found some ladies. And we all talked. And talked. And talked. Who knew there were so many funny and cute local bloggers? The evening went so quickly and soon it was  finally time to say good-bye. We all exchanged cards (so that I could blog-stalk them later), snapped some final photos, and I left (with a goody-bag, no less. score!) feeling redeemed. Such a lovely evening. So thank you, to Kate, Lauren, and Carrie for organizing this shin-dig, to Benelux for hosting, and to all the lovely ladies I met, for their encouragement and their laughs. It was a blast and I cannot wait until next time!!
