I would like to take a moment to thank the wonderful hosts of this event, Andi and Heather. These are two of the most amazing people in the history. The spend nearly the full year planning the even for us, even when we aren’t seeing blog updates. They always go above and beyond the call of duty to give us this even that I know many of us spend months looking forward (probably 6 months… from the minute the prior one ends). Without all their hard work, this event wouldn’t be half the one it is. Thank you, ladies. We all owe you so much!
