influence conference: a link up

In a couple of weeks I'm headed to The Influence Conference. I'm beyond excited about this conference. The Influence Network holds a VERY special place in my heart and so much of what I do online has come from the leadership, friendships and encouragement that come from there. It's an honor for me to be a community leader at the conference and I will also be leading a workshop for moms! What a joy that God has brought my passion for moms and joy for blogging together!

I'm linking up today to get to know some of the women attending a bit better! If you are attending, please say hi! I can't wait to get to know you!

2 things I will be sure to have packed in my bag: 

Clothes I rarely get to wear because I don't like them to get drooled on, spilled on. Mommy away time!!!

&

Junk food. Because I've been eating so healthy and I need a break for a few days ;)

2 things I'm looking forward to: 

Spending quality time with my precious friends. My sisters who I don't get to do every day life with. I look forward to those heart to heart chats in the hall of the hotel, the laughs over a cup of coffee, the hugs as we learn and grow together.

&

Seeing what God does through the conference, because He has a BIG plan. Last year my heart was opened to God's plan for me. I focused my blog and my heart on His plan. Out of that Thrive Moms was born. I'm so excited to spend time with a couple of our Thrive team members.

What I look like so you can recognize me when I squeeze you:

kkI will be leaving that adorable accessory at home for some bonding time with her daddy and two big sisters. YAY! Open arms to love on you guys!
