Phew! Halloween is done! :) Soon, I will write up a post on how that all went, and I will also write a more detailed post with my notes from the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference 2014. Given that November is often focused on giving thanks, though, I'd like to write this post, first.
I wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude for being given the chance to work on the conference these past two years. When I first saw the announcement that the inaugural event was being planned, I reached out to Jenny and asked her to let me know if there was anything I could do. Flash forward two years and it has been a whirlwind of preparations and celebrations and I am truly grateful for having been a part of these two events. So, first and foremost, thank you to Jenny and Homa, for carving out a little place for me!
As the planning activities ramped up toward this year's event, I let Jenny and Homa know that I had made the difficult decision to step down from an active planning role in next year's conference. Oh, how I've wished for a clone, as I'm sure many have, but we're just not there, yet. I look forward to seeing the new direction for #FABlogCon 2015, as they have just announced that the event will take place in a new state!
This year's event was full of hugs and so many "moments" and I have yet to find a way to write them all down, so I created one of my favorite visual respresentations - a"word cloud". The size of your name on the heart is not necessarily proportionate to the size of space you have in my heart. (Though, OK, yes, I did put Dr. Li's name in big letters. She was the highlight of an already exciting event! ☺) Thank you to everyone with whom I had a moment at the conference. (((HUGS)))
So appreciative of your help and support! Love the tag cloud idea - I remember when you did the "FAB" one last year for the thank you cards, such a great concept!ReplyDelete
Thank you! They say, "a picture's worth a thousand words," so I figure how about a picture WITH a thousand words? ;)Delete
That is so cute and sweet! You ARE amazing Selena. I hope to see you at the next FAB or hopefully even sooner!!ReplyDelete
Aw, thank you!! Same to you and I hope to see you, soon, too!Delete
Love this Selena! And when YOU need help...I'm there for you.ReplyDelete
Thank you! You have been there for me, and I'll always remember you being the first person to the registration desk in 2013 and then immediately putting yourself to work helping out! (((HUGS))) :)Delete
FABlogCon, Jenny, Homa, and Selena are the fab four. No offense, Beatles but there are sadly only two of you left.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Henry! Yes, FABlogCon is its own "being", made up of all who are present each year!Delete
I think I just lost my post! So I will try again. This is amazing! Just like you, super intelligent, creative and witty!ReplyDelete
You are the sweetest, Caroline! I am carrying the charms you gave me around in my purse to look at from time to time, because they are just so cute. Thanks, again! :)Delete
