|Night scene at Uptown Charlotte's Center City|
Type A Parent conference officially starts today and it's in my "backyard" this year! So thrilled that it is! It's close by which gives me the opportunity to go home and sleep in the comfort of my own bed at the end of the day - true translation: "It's saving me serious big bucks! Although being in Asheville right now doesn't sound so bad either as I think about uptown traffic especially in the morning... Gah! The dreaded morning and afternoon commute!
But, it's all cool. And one other cool thing about this year, is that, I've been included in the Mom Market and I'm pretty excited! I'll be able to sell some of my handmade jewelry creations of which portion of the sale will benefit the homeless children in Charlotte through Bright Blessings, a local non-profit organization that I loyally support for years now.
Through my "YOU BUY - YOU GIVE" campaign, I hope that you will help make a difference in the lives of these children and support small local artisans like me in the process as well. So, I invite you to come by and check out my table at the Mom Market on Sunday, June 24th in the Carolina Hall from 8:45 to 10:00 AM.
I'm also a volunteer again this year so you'll see plenty of me. But beware, I'll most probably be a gate keeper so you better make sure you have your conference ID handy or you're not getting in to those aww-some nightly parties happening at the conference!
I can't wait to see who I'll finally meet for the first-time In Real Life this year. In the past year some of the wonderful ladies I met:
- Elisa Camahort-Page, COO and Co-Founder of Blogher - a vegetarian like my hubby and awfully sweet in person!
- Katja Presnal of Skimbaco Lifestyle - Whose accent is adorable as mine - ahem!
- Laura Spencer of Disney World - The fashion icon of bling and have tons of pixie dusts to give!
I hope to see you and meet YOU too!
