The Best Part of Blogging Conferences



A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of meeting two of my bloggy friends at Downtown Disney for Dinner: Connie from Brain Foggles and Jennifer from The Dirty Shirt. I have been a fan of their blogs for quite some time now and met them both briefly at the Disney Social Media Moms Conference, plus we have all been Twittering away since then. We all live in Florida, but not really that close {Florida is a really BIG state} and our schedules are all so busy, that it isn't that easy for us to get together.



Bill came with me, Connie came with her husband and her daughter, Samantha and Jennifer brought her daughters Ashley and Abby plus her son and his girlfriend (I'm really sorry I don't remember their names). We all had a fabulous time laughing and talking and getting to know each other even more. It really is just like we had know each other all our lives. I am so happy to be a member of this wonderful bloggy community that has given me such fabulous friends who feel like family. Here are some photos of our fun time together.....

Thanks to Jen, Connie and their families for a terrific time - can't wait until we get to do it again!!
Until next time..... Lorie

It was a wonderful evening! I agree that friendships online and IRL are the best things about blogging. I'm happy that I "found" you at Disney Social Media Moms and that we're continuing to stay in touch. Maybe next time, you and Bill can come to Spring Hill for a visit?? :)
