Connecticut Bloggers Anniversary Party

Over the last year I've been so grateful for the wealth of opportunities that the Connecticut Blogger Collective has afforded me. From meeting and collaborating with other local bloggers, to the fun events, having a local blogger group has been wonderful. I am constantly in awe of the amazing events the groups founder Nonee puts together, and last week's one year anniversary party was no different. A rooftop venue in Hartford with catering from The Place 2 Be, I got to sip mimosas while taking in the views and chatting with the other bloggers who I've gotten to know over the past year.

I'm really looking forward to what the next year will bring, and I would love to get to know all the Connecticut bloggers even better. Many thanks to Nonee, Caitlin, The Connecticut Blogger Collective and the rest of the evenings' sponsors, The Place 2 Be, The Write Board, Adoro Paper Co., Linda June Beauty, Poshlolgy, Krimson Prints, and New England Foodie.
