Big Summer Potluck 2 Recap

Over the weekend, I attended the second annual Big Summer Potluck.

What a weekend it was: a time to learn, to talk, to listen, to connect, to share, to be inspired, to eat, to relax, to laugh, and to cry.

And to hug for at least 8 seconds.

Maybe it should be re-named The Big Summer Blogger Love Fest? It was just lovely in each and every way.

Special thanks to:

Erika and Maggy: your hard work and dedication to making this event so wonderful is appreciated so very much.

Shauna and Penny: your talents are astounding; thank you for your willingness to share your experiences in such a beautiful way.

Justin and Pam: hearing each of your perspectives during your talk together was fascinating and very timely for me. Additional thanks to Justin for providing the after-party locale on Saturday night and additional thanks to Pam for opening up your stunning home to us on Friday and Sunday (plus I also must mention that you cook and sling a mean paella).

-All the attendees: you’re a very special group and I enjoyed spending time with you so much.

-Our incredibly generous and awesome sponsors:

Kerrygold USA
Pop Chips
Green Valley Organic
Green Mountain Coffee

  2. A beautiful recap both visually and in words, Winnie. SO glad you took such wonderful feelings and vibes away from BSP – sounds like it was a little does of what everyone needed. If only it had been a month earlier. But as I said to Cathy on Sunday – “seriously – cannot complain” given where WE were instead ;) Thanks for letting me live a little vicariously through yous post!
