Face to Face... Mug to Mug...

When I was 4, we moved from Washington to Oregon. Within the first month or so of being there, our family attended a family camp with our new church. In my adventures around the campground I found a caterpillar. I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I began walking around, showing it to everyone in the campground. Eventually, I made it through everyone in our church and moved on to the other people in the campground. Several hours later, my frantic parents found me in the ranger's station. I had no idea that I was lost, or that anything was wrong.

I've always been a people person. I am not shy by any means... I love talking and meeting new people... However, Thursday night I found myself completely intimidated. I walked into the meeting room where Jasmine Star would be hosting the Smug Mug User Group, and I was so nervous. It was a great night, full of wonderful information (that resulted in the decision to use Smug Mug for my own business). It was also a night of making fun connections.

I found myself face to face, or mug to mug :), with several of the industry's top professionals. As nervous as I was, I had no reason to be. I am so blessed to live in an area where people in the same industry don't compete... they learn and help each other.

So for all of you who were there that I met... you're amazing and I'm so glad to be in business with you... and for those of you I didn't meet... I hope to soon!

Here are some pictures I took off of Jasmine's blog:

My friend Melody who I featured a couple of weeks ago on my blog, provided the treats. Melody you did an AWESOME job! They were raved about! :)
