Ah Blend. By far my favorite blogger event I’ve been to, both this year and last. To be honest, I was nervous going in this year. Partially because I felt like I should have sold my ticket since money is tight and this seemed like such a luxury, and partially because most of my close blogger friends weren’t coming and I was nervous about not having that group with me again! But silly me – turns out this weekend was exactly what I needed. Not only did I make some new, amazing friends, but I also got the sunshine, fresh air and laughter that I didn’t even realize I was missing.
Blend is a blogger (or non-blogger!) retreat with mostly food & fitness bloggers. Blend means Blogger + Friend. There were 100 girls, plus our three amazing leaders who put the whole event together: Lindsay, Janetha & Lauren. This year Blend was held at Chautauqua Park, which is just outside of Boulder. I thought it was just a park, but they have a little neighborhood here with tons of lodges, a general store, a restaurant and soooo much more. And of course amazing hiking trails!
If I try to re-cap the entire thing I think we’ll all be here for hours, so instead I’m going to do a bit of a photo dump of my amazing weekend with blends:
A HUGE THANK YOU to all the sponsors of Blend this year. This amazing weekend would not have been possible without them, and it was so great to meet some of their reps at Blend!
