Inspired may be in understatement, this past week was one of the most incredible and inspiring weeks of my life.
I headed out to Salt Lake City last week to attend ALT Summit and came back with a new outlook on life (I know that may sound cheesy). If you are not familiar with ALT Summit, it is a three-day conference filled with some of the most talented design and lifestyle bloggers sharing their tips and tricks to finding your voice and being successful. But, what I found was it was much more than just that. It was a place where like-minded people come together, learn, laugh and maybe even find themselves. Being in my mid 20's, I am constantly trying to "figure it all out". Before the trip I was so worried about my business cards, what I was going to wear, and how I was going to portray myself in situations with new people. And you know what I figured out, that being myself and not worrying over the little details were the two best things I could have ever done.
Being open and present during the conference allowed me to meet some incredible people. Not only were all of them talented in their own right, but willing to share stories that some of my friends I have known for years haven't even shared. Who would have thought in just 4 days I could meet people that I could call my friends? I was so lucky to have two wonderful roommates, the extremely talented Jessica (if you were following my instagram, you saw her amazing custom jewels I was so fortunate to be able to wear all week) and my real-life friend, Michelle (I wouldn't have been at ALT if it wasn't for her). I know we will be life long friends- a trip to Nashville may be in the works for this Summer. I loved meeting and chatting with uber-talented ladies like Camille, Meg, Erin, Ashley, Jessica, Morgan and Carrie, just to name a few. But all in all, the best take away from this past week was the relationship I made and can't wait to see what is next.
I will be posting a recap of what I learned at the conference tomomorrow. Stay tuned!
