Well I have just dropped off the face of the blogging earth here lately huh?!
I kept thinking I hadn’t blogged in like 3 weeks, but when my friend Sarah Mae teased me about it on the phone last night, I realized that it has been nearly 6 weeks since I last posted!
And the funny thing is that I’m running this little (actually really big) blogging conference called Allume. I know, ironic right?! Running a blogging conference and not even blogging myself pretty much the majority of the summer. Ahem…amazing….or not!
But see, here’s the thing, I haven’t had time! I don’t think I have EVER worked so hard on something. And at the end of the day when I have answered calls, and made calls, and tried to wade through the ridiculous piles of emails, I have these wonderful posts in my head, but I have yet to figure out how to type when I’m fast asleep because I’m so exhausted.
Sarah Mae is my hero. She ran the blogging conference last year and still managed to blog. I’m gonna ask her if I can borrow her super powered cape. Mine is apparently low on fuel.
But I did go to our favorite local peach stand and make peach jam with my kids this week to give to our Allume speakers and sponsors come October . The recipe I used is HERE on the Sure-Jell website. What can I say, I’m just a fan of the homemade gift. Plus, if it’s the first time that some of our people have ever come to South Carolina, then have mercy, they MUST try a bit of the peachy goodness that defines so much of South Carolina in the summer!
Our summer has been just the most fun. I’ve worked hard this whole summer, but we have traveled more than ever as well. I guess since my kids are finally to an age where road trips don’t make me want to cry, we’ve gone on several of them. Really, so you know I haven’t truly disappeared, pop over to follow me on Instagram and at least visually keep up with our shenanigans.
Here are a few favorites from our summer.
Virginia, Georgia, Florida, and fun even right here in Greenville. I tossed in a random trip to Nashville to visit some old friends and new ones, and we are heading to the mountains for a little old-fashioned unplugging still this summer too.
It’s been a good one, and I can’t believe it’s coming to an end!
Next Tuesday, Sarah Mae and I are hosting an Allume Twitter party at 9pm EST, so pop on in under the hashtag #Allume to win awesome prizes from some of our Allume sponsors, hear more about Allume, and even have the chance to win a ticket to Allume! It’s going to be incredible. And you know what, even if you don’t blog…that’s ok too!
