Design Blogger Conference

As part of my post at Grace Home Furnishings, I was lucky enough to attend the Design Bloggers Conference this week at the gorgeous Biltmore Hotel downtown. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but it was a lot of fun and inspiring. (look! I'm blogging again!)

On Tuesday night I helped coordinate at party at the Grace Home showroom with Currey & Company, a fabulous lighting company based in Atlanta. (Sidenote - I have one of their chandeliers in my bedroom - see photo below.)

I had a great time meeting all the bloggers and other design industry peeps, but the one topic that kept coming up time and again was my chickens! When I mentioned I used to keep a blog about them, everyone said that they would be interested in reading more about them, so here it goes again!

I think Now and Hen will be a little more broad in it's scope (chickens are fun, but not THAT interesting, especially on a daily basis) but I really am inspired after this conference to give it a go again!


  1. So glad you're blogging again! I love your blog and will enjoy following you. So nice to have met you at the Grace Home party!

  2. My cousin, Amy Meier, attended the conference also! Looks like it was a great time.

  3. Jana - It was lovely meeting you! Thanks for your encouragement! Can't wait to start reading your blog. Linda - how funny! I'm sure your cousin and I crossed paths at some point!
