Sacramento Bloggers Inaugural Meetup

A few ladies in my hometown decided to create a place for us bloggers to connect, Sacramento Bloggers. I immediately joined the group. In the past, I've seen blogger meetups in other cities and wished Sacramento was more active when it comes to "real life" socializing.

Thanks to Margaret and Nichole, I think we will be more active as a blogging community.

The group's inaugural meetup was Thursday at the La Rivage Hotel. Bloggers of all ages and backgrounds gathered to learn about each others blogs, share tips and socialize...(and of course, drink lots of wine and snack on some delicious fare).

The event venue was gorgeous. The hotel is located right on the river with a beautiful patio for our group to enjoy the perfect Fall evening.  

Signature Drink
Now for the best part, the reason we all come to these events....the bloggers. I met some truly amazing people that blog about a broad range of topics and life issues. It was an inspiring evening surrounded by so many creative people with a love for writing and blogging.

This was a fabulous event with a great turnout of about 40 people. 
I'm so happy to have been a part of it!

Thank you for visiting my blog. Yours is beautiful and I loved reading about your farming fantasy. I dream of quitting my career and spending my time organic gardening (I'd probably be miserable) so I can relate. Wonderful to meet you:)

Hi! Thanks for reaching out today. I'm so glad I found your blog as well. I had no idea that so much was going on with you. I'll definitely be following now. And yes, we did move to Boston about a month ago. So crazy, I had no idea that you lived here as well. We need to connect over more than blog comments :)
