Wow, June has been a really cool/crazy month! If you haven’t heard (and at this point I’m pretty sure everyone on earth has heard whether they give a crap or not), I got engaged this month out in Colorado!
That wasn’t the only exciting thing happening this month. I also spoke at the TBEX 2012 event in Keystone Colorado. It was nerve-wracking but fun. Mariellen from Breath Dream Go did a lovely write- up of my session. The entire conference was great and Mike and I are already planning ot make it to TBEX Spain in September.
Here’s what else is going on:
#EatTheWorld- our twitter chat last month was a HUGE success! Turns out people love to talk about food and travel. We’re running another one on Monday July 2 at 3 PM EST. Head over here for details and to RSVP.
And of course you can still buy our awesome app to take food suggestions with you wherever you go.
Travel Plans: Things are slowing down in July, which I can definitely appreciate after the last few hectic months. On Friday Mike and I are headed up to New York to cat-sit for my best friend while she gallivants around Iceland. After that we’ll be spending some time in Pennsylvania and DC with the families. And I guess we’ve got this wedding to start planning…
