Eat Write Retreat 2011

Last weekend, I was supposed to be volunteering at the first Eat. Write. Retreat. conference, an all-inclusive conference for food bloggers. Instead, I was having a second ultrasound and enduring a three-hour glucose test (more on that in an upcoming post).

I had bowed out of my volunteer honor the month before knowing that, at seven months pregnant, I probably couldn’t keep up with the weekend’s agenda. It was the right decision but I still longed to be there.

I’ve been watching Twitter hoping to virtually experience the conference and over the last week I’ve seen a lot of recap posts, all of which made me wish I had been there even more. Not for the swag or even the awesome sessions but for the camaraderie between food bloggers. Post after post expressed the same sentiment that the connections made were the best part of the weekend.

And so I wanted to share with you this collection of those posts from the Eat. Write. Retreat website:

Won’t you join me next year?
