Finally a stolen Sunday to sit down, breath, drink a coffee and collect my thoughts. My thoughts, however, are not being collected in their usual west coast location but in the much more humid environment of SXSW. Lauren and I came down here to do a panel, which happened yesterday evening. The panel was a tonne of fun for us as panelists and moderator, if I may speak for us all. Hopefully the many awesome questions and pieces of feedback we got afterwards from audience members indicate a success for participants as well.
We are staying in a stellar hotel, of which photos and a review for all those planning to make it to Austin one day, will follow when we return. Most of all our trip so far has been fulled to the minute with meeting and connecting with truly amazing folks down here. Alex's hospitality has gone far and beyond the call of world's greatest BFF and host, and we have been able to spend some fabulous time getting to know Jenny Hart and Vickie Howell, who together with Alex completed our panel line up. If these three are any indication then Austin is teeming with business gals so smart they'll knock your boots off. All that to say nothing of the fiesty good looks. Plus, who knew I'd find myself spending an evening in a candle lit courtyard, a champagne cocktail in hand at a table nearly half filled with vegetarians. In Texas! Awesome.
Anyway, with our session out of the way it's time to cram in a few sessions ourselves, check out more of the local scene and try not to drain my bank account at Anthropologie... Pretty things indeed.
