Thank you Jyl and Rachael for having me as a speaker and for handling everything with such positivity, sass and class.
Evo 10 is...it's amazing keynote speakers and being able to hear women that I have admired and read from a long time. Special thank you to Stephanie, Karen and Brene. You are even "more better" in real life.
Evo 10 is... meeting new faces and spending some quality time with old friends. Thanks Maria, Katie, Kristen and Amy for being such the classy bloggers that you are.
Evo 10 is...sharing a panel of Food Blogging and Food Photography with three amazingly witty and smart women: Jane, Helen Jane and Stephanie.

Evo 10 is....having some pretty darn gorgeous and sassy roomates. Thanks Kami and Carina for laughs.
Evo 10 is...impromptu concert late at night by the cute guys of One EskimO.
Evo 10 is...being lucky to take a snapshot of the amazingly Karen in action as she works on her project "Photograph 1000 Faces". I am truly honored to be one of them.
And then Evo 10 turned into Food And Light Photography Workshop with this amazing bunch of friends and fellow food bloggers, Todd, Diane and Jen.
We were joined by Andrea, Lisa, Anita and Susan for dinner and toasted to Anita's recent weddings and to a good and fun workshop.
Before I leave you for the next few days of workshops, travel and laundry (yuck), let me go ahead and announce the winner of The Newlywed Kitchen" cookbook. Congratulations to Anna from Blondie's Cakes! Email me your mailing info at mytartelette[at] gmail [dot] come.
