Dirt Road Adventures – From Haven Conference

Wow, what a busy week! I’ve been in Atlanta, GA for the Haven Conference with the most amazing people. It was an action packed conference and I learned so much. Today’s post will be short and sweet but I wanted to share a few things with you today.

First, I’m sharing a few behind the scene photo’s as well as a cute chicken coop, a free floral arrangement, outdoor dining table ideas, and more.

What is Haven Conference?

This was my first time attending Haven Conference which is a wonderful training experience for bloggers. Many talented speakers, who are experts in their field, shared their talents to help us grow our business and become more successful.

The conference was held at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta which is a beautiful facility and perfectly located within walking distance of many restaurants and great shopping.

Meeting Friends For The First Time

I had so much fun meeting all these fabulous ladies! I’ve known most of these ladies for 2 year or more but had only met a few in person.

They are all friends that I’ve shared with you over the previous weeks here on Dirt Road Adventures.

My roommate Stacy Ling from Bricks N Blooms, Robyn from Robyn’s French Nest, Jennifer from Cottage on Bunker Hill, Kim from Cottage in the Mitten and Renae from Peacock Ridge Farm.

Kari Anne from Thistlewood Farms, Kim & Jennifer again, Robyn, Jennifer, Kari Anne, Brendt from She Gave It A Go, Stacy and myself. In addition to these ladies, there were so many more friends that made the entire conference amazing. I wish I could have had a photo opportunity with each one.

The conference was hosted by Home Depot, Ryobi Tools, Rust-oleum, Quikrete and so many other vendors. We received so many great products from the vendors and learned so much from all the workshops.

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.

Why Didn’t I Think of That?

Each week, there are so many wonderful blog posts, and I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today.

There are so many creative ideas, and I’m always asking myself, “Why didn’t I think of that”? LOL

Rachel, I was delighted to see and hear how much you enjoyed the Haven Conference. It had to be so much fun to meet all those other bloggers that you have only known virtually. What a great opportunity. I know I enjoy the links you provide to their blogs.

Looking forward to more Dirt Road Adventures.
