Most 'Wordless Wednesdays' around here aren't that wordless. This one is no different. I love this picture. I just had to talk about it. Robin, the purdy lady in the photo, would totally know what I was talking about - since she's also the queen of all things wordy. We are two peas in a pod, me and the poetry-loving Pensieve.
The picture may not be the BEST shot ever, but there are a few favorite things in it that you need to notice: 1. Robin (she's great, y'all - even better in person - she just radiates southern charm), 2. the Biltmore tour (oh, my dear that was one of the most wonderful field trips we have EVER been on in our seven years of homeschooling), 3. BUSINESS CARDS (I mean, if you can't take the bloggers home with you from a blog conference, you should at LEAST get to take home their cards, right???).
Well... I had the cards. I even had a custom, handy, bright yellow, little bee zipper pouch to hold them in. All of my cards and the ones that were given to me at the conference by all the PR people, marketers, and amazing bloggers were in my tiny bee bag. It was like a pirate treasure - hidden away for me to sift through in greedy revelry as soon as I got home.
You can't imagine the grief I felt upon discovering that my little yellow zipper bag - my Queen Bee ditty bag with all those glorious cards - was MISSING.
Gone. Just like that.
So I have only 'misty water color memories' of the Type-A Mom conference now. And if you aren't over 30, you probably have absolutely no idea what that quote is in reference to.
Were you at Type-A Mom with me? Did you take home one of my business cards and happen to be reading my blog (stranger things have happened)? I would love for you to mail me a business card. You have my address already. And I love snail mail.
If you find my Queen Bee zipper purse, please return it to me. No one could throw something that cute in the trash. I just know it has to be out there. It's buzzing my name. Silently... from some trash heap in Asheville, or some maid's little girl's backpack...
I guess I have to go to Blissdom now. In February. Want to sponsor me?
