My Haven Story

To think I wasn't going to go to Haven, well at first I wasn't but after a 
Facebook post saying I have a Haven ticket for sale. I didn't even think 
about it, I just said "I'll buy it, ME, please!" and it really was one of the 
best decisions I think I've ever made {well besides my hubby and children} 

Our first night was full of  warm welcomes from these fabulous ladies{I'm sure you recognize them all} and a cocktail party to mingle. Haven was a year in the making and they really did an outstanding job. Thank you Sarah, Rhoda, Kate, Kristi, Traci, BethChris and Marian for all of your hard work!

Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick, one of the first blogs I
started following and was inspired from then on.

Oh Nester, I love you! 

My roomies and fellow bloggers who I call "friends" now. Thanks Anna@Directions Not Included,
Ange@The Blooming Hydrangea, and Lisa@Before Meets After for the friendship, laughter, talking until the wee hours in the morning! Love ya ladies! 

Young House Love welcomed us to Haven the first day of the 
conference. I loved hearing their story on how they started blogging, 
they took a chance, amazing! 

Thrifting 101 with Mr. Goodwill Hunting

Already looking forward to next year


  1. ME TOO! I'm already counting down the days. I got a last minute ticket after it sold out too, and I'm so happy I did. I can't imagine if I hadn't gone, you know!?! Amazing to make real, in life friends, through our blogs. :)

  2. I had a blast with you guys! I love you and your roomies! I want to be BFFs with the 4 of you. Seriously. I could hang out with y'all all day every day. You are so fun!
