I’ve been to Charlotte for a company conference, which ended with a fun afternoon of mall browsing and Cheesecake Factory with Erin from Blue Eyed Bride– our first time meeting in real life!
I had an overnight trip to Chicago, where the main event was a food and wine tasting with master chef Rick Bayless himself:
I’m headed to a conference for one of our partner companies, which makes me both excited and admittedly? A little sheepish. This is my first time attending an industry function for my job, without the support of my Director or any coworkers by my side (thanks for throwing me into the deep end, Boss… I kid, I kid). I absolutely, pos-a-tootly *love* my job, basically to the eat-sleep-breathe level of adoration, so it’s not like there’s an impending sense of dread for the week to come. It’s just that, you know, me? Being the sole representative for my company for the next few days? In sunny Orlando? Where I get to talk about an industry I love? Pretty big in my book.
Oh, and there’s one other small thing- the closing event of the conference will be a private party here:
So there’s that.
