#Brandcation Was AMAZING!

Yesterday, late afternoon, I returned home from Brandcation. Being a first timer I went in not knowing what to expect to start off I will say it was awesome and SO TIRING, but tiring in a good way. There was fun, sun, laughter, and lots of adventures. I will be sharing more with you about it through the week but wanted to say I made it home safe and sound and if you ever get a chance you totally should attend a Brandcation.

I’ve been to big events with thousands of people and while those are not bad this is definitely the kind of event I love. It was a small (but not too small) intimate group so you really had a chance to get to know the others attending and to be honest when I have went to big conferences that is the best part for me, getting to know everyone. When there are thousands it’s not possible but with the smaller events like this it is definitely within reach.

Bonding over zip lining adventures, dolphin tours, Jill, floating down a river, and just getting to visit with fellow bloggers was worth more than I could ask for. From the minute I picked up my group from the airport until the time I headed home it was a fun filled weekend I enjoyed completely. I had a great roommate, housemates and everyone in attendance was just wonderful. I was pretty proud of myself for not crying when I left but the minute I actually headed home and didn’t have a car full of chatty women talking about everything from breastfeeding to blogging I realized how much I was going to miss them. I truly made friends for a lifetime on this fun filled adventure and I hope you will all check. So head on over and say hello to:

Until I have time (as if I know what that is with so little of it available) I wanted to make sure to share all the awesome companies and people with you! Can’t wait until the next Brandcation I get to go one because there will be a next one for me if I can make it happen!!!  So what are you waiting for…keep an eye out and if you can grab up a ticket you need to hop on down when the next Brandcation happens!!

*Activities and most meals were paid for by above mentioned sponsors during the event.  I wanted to share my thanks by mentioning them so you all could “meet” them.  Also a BIG THANK YOU to Trisha, Kim, Lynsey and Blondie (links above) for making this happen.
