I finished my taxes on Friday (yippee!), so thought I would reward myself with a fun-filled weekend. I started out by meeting my good friends for breakfast on Saturday to celebrate three of their birthdays. We had a great time over some good food at Honeyberry Cafe.
On Sunday morning, I attended The Washington Street Market in Naperville.
Mark Norkaitis of Room 363 always puts on a beautiful show.
There were several of these gorgeous over-sized wreaths available to purchase.
And just look at this fabulous painted piano. When I was leaving the market a gentleman was 'tinkling the ivories' fill the air with wonderful music.
The vendors are always top-notch at this market.
After the market, it was time to move on to The Midwest Meet-Up in Lisle organized by Jen Rizzo for local bloggers to get-together.
There was an array of snacks to munch on. Jen had her darling three daughters and sweet hubby helping her set everything up.
Then we got down to brass tacks and serious blogger business discussing the latest in blogging trends and social media.
Jen is the cute gal standing in the pic above. It was so great to meet some new blogging friends. My head is still spinning from all the information exchanged. I can't believe how much this industry has changed since I started blogging eight years ago.
