Big Week

I had one of the biggest weeks, both life in general and for blog-related, that I’ve had in recent memory.

In case you missed my very full week, here are the highlights:

Saturday I guest posted on Angela of Oh She Glows blog

Chocolate Coconut Cashew Butter

On Monday I Flew to Boulder for Food & Light

Early Morning Boulder Run Tuesday

Food & Light: Photography Tips from Jen Yu & Matt Wright on Tuesday morning

Food & Light: Photography Tips from Diane Cu later on Tuesday.  <— Read those tips!!

Food & Light: Photographing Challenging Food & Personal Assignments was Tuesday afternoon

Food & Light: Restaurant Photography Tips was Wednesday morning <–Glad you enjoyed these tips, too

And I was San Diego Bound & Back Home Wednesday afternoon and evening

One Very Big Day on Thursday:

1. I was featured on Pooja’s Way as their Spotlight Blogger

2. I Guest Posted on Gabriela of Une Vie Saine’s blog

Raw Pasta Salad with Creamy Lemon & Herb Dressing

3. I had Blogger Meetups Galore Thursday night!

4. I had a dinner with Lori and other bloggers

5. I left dinner and had a meetup with Kath and other bloggers

And prayed for Some Calm on Friday!

I guess I have to go to the side of a mountain to get some peace, eh?

Thanks for letting  me know your thoughts on Restaurant Photography, if you use your camera in restaurants, if you’re shy about it, think it’s weird, don’t care, and so forth.  I loved hearing your opinions on breaking out your camera in restaurants and your overall approach and thoughts.

And I’m glad you found the restaurant photography tips helpful, too.

Questions:

1. What was the highlight of your week?

Food and Light was such an amazing experience.  I learned about photography but I believe traveling, in general, challenges us, stretches us, and helps us grow.  So although the photography information and learning that took place was wonderful, the personal growth aspect was fantastic, too.

Guest posting on two different blogs and being featured as a spotlight blogger…also three huge honors.

And then meeting so many bloggers with the blogger meetups that I had was fantastic!

So all of these things were highlights.  Hard to pick!  When it rains it pours

2. What’s been the highlight of your weekend, so far?

I spent time in the kitchen baking!

Follow me on Twitter or Instagram for the blow by blow

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    You’ve definitely lived it up! So far, lounging in the pool with my hubby was the highlight for me. Just nice, relaxing, no worries time.

    What a week!!! Awesome! I admire you for your attitude, for following your dreams and passions, and how you live your life to the fullest… well and for all the delicious concoctions you think up of course :-)
    I really love the photo of the zucchini pasta- so pretty! I actually tried raw zucchini pasta for the first time a few days ago, it’s so easy and delicious. I really want a spiralizer now. I want it badly ;-)

    Sounds like an awesomely busy week! My favorite was going out for drinks last night, just me and my man. We NEVER do that, and so it was a huge change of pace. Although, I think I do regret that last drink… ;)

    The highlight of my weekend so far has been sitting on a blanket in the park taking in the music of the folk festival.

    All the business, and you still seem to thrive. I’m in awe. I think I would be pulling my hair out and I would lock myself in a closet for the next week, not talking to anyone. One of the perks of being a single non-mom, I guess. :)
