Oh...my...goodness!  Are you surprised at the radio silence this week?  If you know me personally then probably not.  This past week has been simply crazed with so many wonderful things and some not so wonderful things in between. 

I arrived at Alt. Design Summit last Wednesday, and shortly following an amazing dinner hosted by La Crema a little nagging cough snuck up on me.  The days that followed were jam packed with amazingness, but a little rain cloud called the flu hovered over me at the conference.  After stopping to take a breather, dropping which motivated me to take more DayQuil, NyQuil, and Advil than is probably healthy, I decided to roll with the punches.  After all, my trip to Alt. was followed {and by followed I mean the Saturday after Alt. I was up at 3:00 a.m. on a flight back to Nashville} by my responsibility to co-chair a silent auction of over 100 items for an amazing event that benefited the pediatric cancer reserach.  So even though I am patting myself on the back for "rolling with the punches" Did I really have a choice?  I guess we always have choices in life, but let me tell you about what helped me to keep rolling with the punches.

First of all I had the most darling roomies at Alt.  Michelle {who was also under the weather} is a close friend that I made at Alt. last year and being reunited was simply wonderful.  Ali was the perfect image of "Bright eyed and bushy tailed." Her energy definitley kept my spirits up.  I also got to see so many of my favorite buddies from last year, and meet new and friendly faces.  Also the amazing Elizabeth from Four and Twenty Blackberries welcomed me home with some amazing homemade chicken noodle soup since she knew I had been under the weather.  I will be back in full swing next week.  But I hope everyone has had an amazing week.  Happy Thursday....J

P.S. The top three pics were taken at the Girls with Glasses Method Suite Party and I snagged the bottom three pics from Alt Summit's amazing Flickr page
