I read about it all over the blogosphere - the Altitude Design Summit. It's the first conference dedicated to design and lifestyle blogs. People who love images...that's me. So many of my favorite bloggers were on the speaker list - I was dying to hear them in person. But at $350 to attend 1 1/2 days, it was out of my pricerange for a "fun weekend."
Then I randomly visited DesignMom's blog yesterday for the first time in months, she had a link to one of the conference sponsors giving away 7 free passes, I entered, and I WON! When I read my name on the winners list tonight I screamed so loud to D that it scared Little S and she started crying and hid under the diningroom table. Just another regular night at our house (after she was asleep D pulled a DVD case out of the freezer - she put it there during dinner, I think :)
As a bonus, various Sundance Film Festival events are included in the conference pass. I L-O-V-E Sundance. D and I only attended toward the end of our years in Utah, but it was memorable and we promised to return and make it one of "our things" in years to come.
SLC here I come.
