I am back from Vegas. I have no voice, but it was worth it because I got to chat with my friends and some of you! I loved, loved, loved meeting everyone. Oh gosh, now I'm tearing up. This trip, I just can't even explain. Life changing. Motivation. Inspirational. Supercharged (TpT had that as their slogan for the conference and it fit that to a 'T').
I see you guys on FB, IG, and blogs. I see your little profile picture, hear your stories, get a glimpse of your life. But then, I got to meet you. See you in person. Physically hug you. And perhaps scream your name or shout out in glee when the logo I see became a real person standing in front of me.
I did go to a day at the DI Conference and it was amazing. I saw Dave Burgess and Rick Wormelli, to name a few.
The blogger meet up was AMAZING. Intense to say the least. Imagine a room of 500+ teachers packed together, talking for 3 hours straight. Now you know why I lost my voice. SO WORTH IT. I may have looked a hot mess at the end, but I don't care. I met SO many people. "Friends" I've talked to/with online for 2+ years.
I met Melonheadz! And Kimberly Geswein (I almost typed out Guess-wine! Lol). Angela Watson and sooooo many more. I barely took any pictures, so some of these are snagged.
And I also met the man that has changed my life. Need I say his name? Well, I am anyway. Paul <3
This was the TpT happy hour. I got to hug on Amy again. And see some of my besties (do you recognize them?)
And I did leave the Venetian. But not much haha! Went on the High Roller and saw Love (Beatles Cirque show). Amazing!
Yes, I got some #teacherswag and info from the conferences. But I'm walking away with so much more, all these new (and old) friendships, the best souvenir you could have.
