Financial Blogger Conference in Chicago
It’s a beautiful, but chilly Saturday morning here in Chicago. I’m slowly getting up to attend the Financial Blogger conference. Meeting bloggers has been the highlight of this event so far as Raleigh’s personal finance realm is a bit small (we do have a dedicated few though!), so I was excited to sign up and attend this special event.
We arrived here Thursday to give ourselves time to adjust. With a baby, we’ve had to adapt our travel routine. So proud that our daughter is pretty laid back overall. She’s joined me at a couple networking events.
Depending on how she is today, I may have her with me in between sessions this afternoon. If you’re attending the conference, please say hello.
