This past weekend, I was incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to attend a blogging conference through the Influence Network.
Its beyond remarkable how this group of women (that I normally would not have been blessed to meet) came together through the God-Inspired ideas of a hand-full of amazing dreamers.
"Make Your Online Life Mean Something"
is their tag line and I think it is an incredibly beautiful idea.
Contrary to what so many believe about the internet, this online community is supportive, and encourages women to make the most of this web-based tool, whether it be through your business, Etsy Shop, or through your faith.
The speakers were awe inspiring, the venue was exquisite and the community took my breath away.
Oh how I miss these beauties already!!

The gorgeous registration booth...
The Sashes Market was also available throughout the event, which housed addictive merchandise from several of the women attending. I mean, wow! The talent and creative inspiration seething from that room was overwhelming and made me tear up with joy looking at all of the talent that the Lord has provided these women with!
Each woman had her own unique style, blog idea and/or business and if we weren't crying from the last incredible speaker we listened to, we were smiling from ear to ear with excitement.
(I had pinned several items from Tonya's DIY blog on the left, and didnt realize it until after the conference.)
All in all, simply an incredible weekend of growth and inspiration.
It beyond exceeded my expectations.
I can truly say I love these women, and their hearts.
Hope to see you there next year!!
