Welcome to Atlanta * Southern Blog Society Brunch

This past weekend I hit the road and headed south to Atlanta to attend the Southern Blog Society Brunch. The SBS is the brainchild of Cathy {Poor Little It Girl} and Jessica {My Style Vita} and has been a great way to connect with other Southern bloggers writing about topics ranging from food to fashion to lifestyle and everything in between. I’ve loved getting to “know” a lot of the bloggers in and around this area and last weekend’s brunch was the perfect chance to really meet some of the gals I’ve been connecting with online. I roomed with my pal Kaitlin {Secretive Style} (and stayed at the swanky W Hotel in Buckhead) and even though we’d never met in person before it was like we were old friends.

The brunch on Sunday was the deal. Seriously, it had all the makings a great time – good people, delicious food, a giant Bloody Mary & champagne bar and a goodie bag that made it feel like Christmas morning. Cathy and Jessica outdid themselves and I left Atlanta feeling energized and excited about connecting with this inspiring group of gals.

Then I hit the road for 6 hours and got home feeling tired…. No but really, this was such a great experience and if you’re a blogger in the South, I definitely recommend joining the group. The site is full of resources and you’re bound to discover some new blogs to add to your daily reads.

I’m looking forward to doing some collaborations with these ladies in the next couple weeks, so be on the lookout for some of those. Here’s a little recap of the morning.
