I am jumping on a plane later this week to go to the Aussie Bloggers Conference in Sydney. Just me and my carry-on bag. I am so darned excited about the trip – a little adventure on my own. I will be catching up with old friends I haven’t seen in ages, spending time alone (which is a novelty) and meeting a whole bunch of people for the first time face-to-face. I feel like I know so many of them through late night Twitter   marathons and from reading their amazing blog posts. But now I’m going to see them in the flesh (well, not in the flesh, they will be clothed). I can’t wait to give them all a hug. No smiley face emoticons attached, no LOLs or PMSLs – just a great big, old fashioned wrap-your-arms-around-each-other hug. Watch out I’m coming your way Sydney.
