It feels good to be back! I had no idea how much I missed it until I was away for two weeks. I didn’t think that it would be possible for me to stay away for two weeks but it happened, and during this time I was so busy that I didn’t even realize that I had let it go for two whole weeks.
Meeting so many of you this past weekend made it all worth it. To see you and give you a hug in real life made me realize that this is really what social media is all about. Our friendship and admiration started online through our Sunday Supper Movement, but meeting you in person, having you meet my family and having you take part in this Inaugural Food and Wine Conference meant the world to me. You have no idea what a thrill it was to meet you all in person.
The Food and Wine Conference solidified so many things for me. I learned that no matter how large your online following is, there is nothing like live interaction. Watching introductions being made, enjoying the interactions that were taking place and seeing that we can change lives when we all come together, made it all worth it. The Sunday Supper Movement brought these individuals together and there was love, admiration and encouragement everywhere we turned this past weekend.
I write this with such wonderful memories, a lump in my throat and absolute amazement. What really blew me away was the fact that all the members that could not attend the conference felt so strongly that #SundaySupper must go on. Conni from The Foodie Army Wife held down the fort while the rest of us were at the conference. She did such an amazing job that #SundaySupper trended on twitter. The commitment of the Sunday Supper Contributors truly blew me away and I can not thank them enough!
In our family, we love popping up on Saturday and going to our local Farmer’s Market. Cheese, Vegetables, hummus and mediterranean pita bread are some of our favorite items to pick up and this is one of our favorite creations. We love the Pizza and Salad combination.
