Whew. I just returned from a crazy fun weekend in New York City. BlogHer 2012 has come to a close after much laughter, sweat (incredibly hot and humid), reconnecting with old friends and making new. BlogHer is the largest blogging conference and this year was a big crowd with over 5,000 bloggers, speakers, brands and others.
Getting to NY was a breeze. I took the Acela (high speed train) from Boston for the first time and loved it. After a 3 1/2 hour ride with WiFi and a few of my Stonyfield friends I found myself in Penn Station. After quick cab ride to the hotel I was ready to enjoy my weekend.
My first night in New York was spent at a small, intimate party hosted by Stonyfield Organics and Healthy Child Healthy World. Micaela Preston from Mindful Momma and I were blogger ambassadors for the party. I had a chance to address the group and spoke a bit about how both organizations hold a place near and dear to my heart. As some of you may know, I’m a Yo-Getter ambassador for Stonyfield and I’m a Parent Ambassador for Healthy Child Healthy World.
The party made a huge conference feel much more manageable by bringing together a small group of active, green, like-minded and passionate people.
After the party a small group of us were treated to dinner at Chelsea’s Table - a new restaurant opened by Stonyfield founder Gary Hirshberg.
The chef brought out course after course of delicious food.
And that was only the first night……more details of my fabulous weekend in New York coming soon.
Big thank you to Stonyfield Organics for sponsoring my trip to BlogHer12. I also received a complementary pair of Neuaura Mulberry shoes from Compassion Couture Shop which kept my feet happy at BlogHer. All opinions and comments are my very own.
