Hello + Alt Summit...

Yahoo, my internet is back -- well, hopefully for good. I guess it has something to do with the fiber optic infrastructure or something ... they are having major problems with it in our area so if I have touch and go posts this week that is why. Crossing my fingers it will be fixed this week. I hope you had a lovely break and Happy New Year and guess what? Today I turn the big 3-0. I can't believe it. My husband has some surprise plans that he won't tell me about for this evening, should be interesting. Over the break we played quite a bit in the snow and I ate way too many of these chocolates... yikes. Time for some healthy goals for the new year.

Other fun news : Have you heard of the lifestyle and design conference Alt. Design Summit taking place in Utah January 21st - 23rd? The list of rockin' speakers continues to grow, and I am honored and thrilled to be among them. Read more about the conference here and see the panel of speakers here. I can't wait to meet some of my blogging friends and heroes. Are you coming?

I so want to go to Alt Summit but we're saving every penny to fly out to my sister's wedding this summer. That pretty much eats up any travel budget.

Happy birthday! Hope you have lots of fun tonight!

I’m so jealous of this kid she was able to enjoy walking on the snow. I wish I can walk on it to. Well technically we don’t have snow here in my place.
