February Portland bloggers' meet-up pics
I'm really excited to have connected with this lovely group of 50+ local bloggers including style, food, decor, family, party planning, crafty, and other bloggers! They meet every other month, and the February event was, of course, very festive for Valentine's Day. How cute are the decorations??
The brunch was held at one of the bloggers' community rooms in her apartment building, which was a perfect setup for the informal event on a sunny Saturday. And, some of the folks got there early to decorate, of course, and we all agreed--bloggers make the best party decorations! Not surprising, really; of course we spend all our spare time scouring Pinterest and planning DIYs and tutorials... ;)
Anyway, I had lots of fun meeting all the ladies and swapping blog stories. Talk about kindred spirits! We all commiserated about carrying around our monster DSLRs everywhere we go, and sympathized for our poor husbands and boyfriends who we ask to take pictures at the most awkward times sometimes, and talked about goals for our blog futures!
I've known for a while that Portland has a great group of talented artists and bloggers, but it was so wonderful to meet some of them, and then of course go home and check out their blogs if I hadn't seen them all. Here are just a few of the lovely ladies...

And me, of course!
The room was definitely full of red lipstick, bright colors, big jewelry, waist belts, and leopard! If you ever have an opportunity to meet up with bloggers in your area, DO IT!
