Back to Life

There are bags to unpack, laundry to do, floors to sweep, bathrooms to clean…

Yep, vacation is over.

I had a great weekend in San Francisco attending the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival, exploring the city, and visiting some old friends.

The food was good but the people were delicious!

My favorite part of the weekend was the friendliness of everyone there.  I realized last month at Fitbloggin’ that I’m pretty miserable at networking, I’m an introvert in this way.  Luckily, I found it really easy to make friends over the weekend and had many fun conversations and connections.

The festival’s main sponsor, Alaska Seafood, was definitely the food highlight!  Two words: King Crab.

San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the world.  So beautiful.  So unique. Love it.

Now it’s back to real life, off to teach four classes and a rehearsal.  And that laundry probably won’t do itself…

It’s a gorgeous day in Virginia!


  1. Glad to hear you made it back safe and sound! Networking is not really my thing either, but I do love meeting new people. Visits with white alligators are pretty cool too.

      Most conferences have a fee. The ones I have seen range from $200-400 for the weekend. Foodbuzz is called a ‘festival’ and this year was just about eating, celebrating, and networking-no programming. Also, it is only $30 if you use them for the ads on your blog (as I do).
      FitBloggin’ had dozens of info sessions to choose from and I found several of them very useful, it cost about $250 for the weekend.
      There is some sponsorship available to get fees, room, and board paid for but I’ve never done that.
      Hope that helps!

  2. I love your pictures!! That Alaskan Seafood at the Taste Pavilion was holy cow amazing. So so good. I ate both of those samples and then was too full to eat much else! Worth it.
