Rendezvous


Do you ever meet a new person, and just click immediately? You find you have all kinds of things in common, but enough differences to be interesting to one another. You walk away from the conversation, glowing, happy to find yet another great person out there in the world.

I had this experience multiple times this weekend at Rendez-vous New England, a weekend planned by Alison from Long Distance Loving and Jillian from Cornflake Dreams. Thirty bloggers from New England all met in Boston for chatting, chocolate, shopping and shiraz. I wore this outfit to our Saturday night cocktail party at the Charlesmark Hotel - although the jacket came off pretty quickly. Get a bunch of bloggers in a room, and things can heat up!


The thing I love most about blogging is that, for all of the personal energy poured into it, it can be such a social enterprise. In the six months I have been blogging, I have already met so many amazing people, bloggers and non-bloggers alike. I can't wait to see with whom this blog connects me next!


Jacket: McQ, Alexander McQueen for Target
