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)))
