Once again, my feet are aching and I’ve smiled and nodded and guffawed more than my share. I’m surrounded by bright, inclusive, kind and creative women. I don’t quite have words for the entire experience just yet, but I’ll get to it.
I spent about an hour today giving gifts to women, and I’m just getting started.
Brainy Baby put together a very generous gift set. It includes music, videos, toys, a onesie, books and rattles. I adore Brainy Baby from pages to projection, and it was really fun for me to share their product line with some of the most amazing Moms you’ll meet. I got to meet, hug and gift to Emily, who I’d not met before, but when I saw on Twitter that she’s a Friend of Maddie, I realized she’s automatically a friend of Mine. Next was Rockin Mama who is another LA Blogger, how is it that I’m meeting LA bloggers in Chicago? Tanis cruised by, and explained to me that these items were perfect for her son, who has major developmental delays. Oh, and yeah, that made me grateful, hopeful, sad and happy all at once. CentsibleSawyer swang by and I gifted her right up. FluffyPendleton is somewhere beyond adorable and I can’t wait to watch her.
Giving away the 10 Again tees was so much fun. The owners (like Brainy Baby) are friends of mine, so it just felt really great to introduce people to their brand. Everyone commented on how soft and fun the shirts were. Since it’s almost midnight here in Chicago, I’m going to list the Ten Again winners tomorrow, when I’m not bleary eyed.
If you want to see the giveaways and how cute everyone is, here’s the Whrrl story.
