One of the things I love most about my home is the location. I love it here in West Michigan. So, I wanted to create a series that explores some of the wonderful things that this area has to offer. Last month I had the opportunity to attend the very first Bloom Workshop hosted by Michaela and Ashley. After reading their blogs for so long I was a little bit star stuck, but these girls are just as sweet and wonderful in person as they are on their blogs. The day was packed with info, gifts, great gals and all things pretty. The workshop was held at Hydrangea Blu Barn in Rockford. It is an absolutely stunning venue! The day started out with breakfast followed by tips on blogging and social media. We took a break for lunch and Michaela started the afternoon with tips on interior design and styling. Ashley took over for the next session, teaching us how to use our cameras in manual. Then we headed outside to practice these skills in our very own styled shoot! It was simply gorgeous!
We wrapped up with a Q&A session featuring several local, successful bloggers with different specialties. The whole day was so creatively and personally inspiring. I left feeling recharged and set a deadline to relaunch my blog!
Registration for the next session of Bloom just opened yesterday. I can only imagine how beautiful it will be on September 18th. If you are interested in blogging, design, or photography this workshop is a MUST! Honestly, I would attend once a week if I could and still learn something new from these gals. So, do you have your tickets to Bloom?
