About Last Night: The Sisterhood Of Vancouver’s Top Mom Bloggers

June 8, 2017 // Pure Mama, Uncategorized, Vancouver

Way back in 2010 I was a solid year into crafting this blog and I was nominated as one of Vancouver’s Top 30 Mom bloggers. Since then Vancouver Mom has hosted this annual event to celebrate the new crop of mom bloggers and I’ve attended six out of eight of the celebrations. Last night I had the pleasure of going to Hycroft Manor for Vancouver Mom’s Top 30 blogger event, Style.

At the very last minute I decided to wear the exact same dress that I wore for the inaugural event back in 2010. Thank goodness for having a forgiving little black dress in my closet because things with me have changed since 2010! Seven years older, two more babies and I am STILL blogging!

I was really excited to check out Hycroft Manor as I have a secret passion for investigating old houses. When I was given the go ahead to go off and explore I was seriously thrilled. I took my sister along for this event and together we toured the mansion. Peeking into solarium after solarium (seriously, so many solariums!) and checking out the bedrooms and the bathrooms.

Attending last nights event felt like a reunion and also a complete embrace of sisterhood. While blogging in itself has changed so much since I started writing here, it’s so wonderful and refreshing to meet the ‘new to the scene’ sisters who are just starting their journey in the blogosphere. One of my favourite parts of the evening was meeting up with four other ‘originals’ who were part of the 2010 group.

I’ve just recently hit my eight year blogiversary and while I don’t have as much free time these days to capture blog posts, I still love writing and sharing about my life as a Mama in the City. I enjoy getting emails from readers asking questions or sharing with me about how a blog post helped them out. It’s the connections that I make through this outlet that fuel me to keep on writing.

Thank you so much for reading my words and thoughts over these past eight years. Your connection is important to me and I have truly loved sharing my world with you.
