I’ve just come from SNAP! Conference 2014 with fun ideas, exciting products, and valuable information to share — and before I’ve even uploaded my photos to my laptop, I have to take this moment and recognize the incredible hosts and guests at this year’s conference.
As we parted ways after a wonderful dinner and set off for the real world, I thought back to a blogger I’d seen crying earlier in the day.
A few other bloggers stood around her — listening, comforting her, and showing their support.
I thought about another dear friend at the conference who just recently received a phone call I can only imagine made her heart sink — her daughter has discovered a lump in her breast.
This month has been a trying month for me, and I realized all 525 of us were returning home to our own smiles and giggles, hugs and kisses, fears, heartache, tears, and trials. We’ve endured hard things, and we’ve yet to endure hard things. I’m looking forward to learning from and being inspired by you.
After an incredible weekend, I’m feeling grateful.
To each person, brand, and company who contributed to SNAP! Conference 2014.
To the staff of the beautiful Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City.
To each performer and speaker who agreed to come and perform for and speak to a room full of bloggers — some of them, for the very first time though you wouldn’t know it.
To each blogger in attendance, and to each caregiver who supported that blogger. Thank You.
SNAP! has been such a wonderful place to meet, learn from, and be inspired and supported by other creators. I feel encouraged, hopeful, inspired, and stronger. As a blogger. And, as Audra.
If you love to build, create, dream, and connect with other builders, creators, and dreamers I hope to have the opportunity to meet you in person at SNAP! 2015.
Sneak a peek at the sponsoring companies of SNAP! 2014 on the conference website — companies I’m looking forward to helping you connect with.
