Upcoming Portland bloggers' event!!

There's another Portland bloggers' event coming up!  I'm soooo looking forward to it--if you're a Portland-area blogger of any kind, do think about coming to the April event!  Here's the info:

It's going to be structured a little differently than the February brunch--this time it's a cocktail party (you know you want an excuse to wear your newest party dress!), and significant others are encouraged to come!  Here are some of the lovely ladies in my post from last time.  Seriously great group, and I know there are tons more out there.  It's so enriching and fun to talk to other bloggers!

If you're in the Portland area, and blog about ANYTHING, please come!  Send Jenni an email for the specifics.  Or, if you have a local business and want to spread the word and sponsor the event, also email Jenni!

Hope hope hope to see you there!


  1. Thanks so much!! I'm getting quite excited!

  2. You are going to have so much fun, and I can't wait until you post your pretty dress!

  3. I wish I was actually a blogger -- sounds fun!

    Well, shoot... I'd love to come, but I'm already attending a fundraiser that evening for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (highly relevant to my blog!). Hopefully I can catch the next one!

  5. Wow, this sounds super fun! I might see if I can make it :) Maybe I'll have my Spring-y dress done by then...
