This past weekend I had the most amazing experience of my life. I took a little time away from home and the kids and headed to Pensacola, Florida for Brandcation: Bloggers Gone Coastal. I wasn’t sure what to expect on this trip, but I hoped to come away having gained some new friends and feeling refreshed. Instead I came home feeling empowered because I pushed my own limits and tried things I never thought I would do, and I met some incredible women that I will always call my friends.

I am really excited to tell you all about Brandcation, and over the next few days I will be doing that, but first I want to take some time to thank all of the amazing sponsors who made it a reality. Without them, none of this would have been possible! Please take a few minutes to visit the sites below and learn a little more about them.
