This weekend I went to the Boutique Cafe Girl's Getaway Weekend in Salt Lake City. I can't begin to say how wonderful it was! I met so many incredible women..it is rare to be around 35 people that share your interests and that's what this weekend was. Absolutely perfect.
I'm not going to go in to too many details, because there are too many..but I'll tell a little and I want to give some shout outs to the people I spent the most time with. :)
First-I love you Patty! I was so excited to be rooming with the amazing Modkidboutique, but little did I realize she was a total stand up comedian. Every time the little ball of fire opened her mouth-everyone was in stitches. And I knew she was a good designer, but man-her quality is top notch. I got a sneak peek of a new design and wow-so great!
Amelia-even as I write this, I'm choking up a little. LOL..I couldn't wait to meet the designer behind Sweet Feet Boutique-I have been a long time fan. But I soon forgot that she was SFB and just got enraptured by what a wonderful person she is. Everyone that see's her picture knows she is beautiful on the outside, but she is truly one of the kindest people I have ever met. Amelia-I miss you! You brightened each day.
Kim-I didn't get to spend a whole lot of time with you-but OH I think you are divine! I am going to get one of your amazing aprons soon and I can't wait to meet you again!
Eva- Oh how I wish you could have stayed the whole trip! You light up the entire room with your bubbly personality and fun attitude at life. I'm so happy we met in person and now I can put a face to the voice. I can't wait to work with you more in the future.
Daria-You are so very talented and special. What you have done with Boutique Cafe is going to go down in history! And you are such a trooper, even with being sick you managed to pull off an amazing weekend that so many women will remember forever!
Megan- Wow, you are beautiful. (We went shopping and Megan got hit on by a group of Australian divers wanting to wisk her away..and apparantly others have similar stories with her..) I had so much fun getting to know you, we need to have a Idaho division get together!
Chelsea-I really enjoyed seeing you again! You are incredibly talented and self motivated and I couldn't help bust up laughing pretty much every time you said something. :) And I'm super tempted to come steal your Puddle Jumpers. ;) and maybe Sassafrass purse too..
Ticia- You are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Thank you so much for being my friend. The day you introduced me to Amy Butler fabric has changed my life in so many ways..
Dayna- What can I say? I have been one of your BIGGEST fans ever since I found you. I think I was most excited to meet you in person. I want to go clothes shopping with you! Your sense of style is so fun and funky-I can see your personality in your designs and love it. Thank you for letting me take a picture with your glasses on-they are so cute! AND-your garments are created SO meticulously..everyone was dumbfounded when we held them in our hands..
RagazzaBella Girls- Oh you guys are so funny! So much energy and bounce! I think the way you two work together is remarkable..could be the start of a family legacy!
If I left anyone out-please forgive me, the weekend was a total whirlwind and really really needed on my behalf LOL. I feel refreshed and ready to take on the world! I highly recommend attending the next conference. It will be in Texas and this time there is limited seating. Only 100 tickets will be sold. Check out Boutique Cafe for details. It isn't just for designers, but buyers too!
Well, I'm an emotional slobbery mess now so I better go. :)
OH-but PS-I got a really really cool package in the mail today..will share tomorrow. :)
