High Point: the tiniest post

We got back from High Point around 1 AM last night & I'm swamped, so as soon as I can get a spare minute (or 30) I'll fill you in on all the details about our trip.  All that I can really say right now is that I finally got to meet some of my favorite blog friends and it was just amazing.  We bonded.  It's incredible how we create these relationships online and then meet and just connect.  Below is a photo of a group of us out to dinner one night at the Proximity Hotel.  (I am still thinking about my food there. Really. )

Photo  {me, Traci Zeller of Traci Zeller Designs, Angela Williams of Giannetti Home, Benji Gaines & Liz Morten of Dovecote Decor, Bobby McAlpine (yes-  I blubbered...  I have never been so affected by a design book.  Dave's read his book too and was so excited to meet him.) Brooke Giannetti of Velvet & Linen, Maria Killam of Colour Me Happy and Dave (my husband ;)  ... Steve Giannetti took this picture and Dave & I are also totally in awe of him.  I promise to write more- I met & saw so many amazing bloggers, designers & good friends, and we're all exchanging pictures, so as soon as I can, I'll post. 

I missed my little guys so much so I'm off to hang with them!! 

xoxo, Lauren

ps- And I have to mention that Traci brought a beautiful red tricycle that her twins don't use and gave it to me for Christian!!  After reading my post about our plastic one, she contacted me.  Does it get any sweeter?? I'm still in awe & so grateful.  Thank you Traci!!!!!  xoxoox

Jade @ Flip Flops + Pearls Design said...

* I can almost "HEAR" the fun, laughter & excitement thru your words here, Lauren, & it's so NICE to "read"!!! All of you look so darling!!!

* You bloggers are a "special breed", much APPRECIATED by all of us "non-bloggers", & it's so delightful that when you all get together for "the first real time", you're all like "FAMILY" right from the start!!! (And the men were soooo "brave", considering they were so "outnumbered"!!!)......

What a great group! Some of my favorite bloggers too. How sweet that Traci brought you a trike for your little one.

How awesome to connect with so many creative minds and to step of the parent wheel for a moment to return with a swell new tricycle! I can see all the wheels turning at that table for great designs.
Enjoy your time back with the guys.
You look lovely - Love your sweater.

I have almost the exact same sweater in grey with taupe color. You look stunning as usual!

traci zeller designs said...

WHY ON EARTH are my eyes closed? Please tell me that someone got another photo of our table!!!!!

Lauren, you are just the best! I had so much fun with you, Maria and our whole crew. Christian is such a handsome little guy, and I can't wait to see him cruising around on his trike. I mean, we are designers, it's all about the aesthetics for us, right? ;-)

What a power lunch! Brooke, you, Maria!

Naturally, I am the last to post and comment. Thank you so much for the link. I cannot tell you what a thrill it was to be included in one of the best evenings of my life. Your husband is hysterical, and btw, Benji and I are not married!! He is Benji Gaines.

Your trip sounds awesome. I am green with jealousy over your shared dinner with Bobby McApline!
