Callie and I drove for 8 hours from Kitchener to get to Chicago for the second annual Healthy Living Summit. 200+ healthy living bloggers such as myself, all together to well, talk about blogging and healthy living ;)

This post will be short on words, heavy on pictures. This weekend I’m soaking it all in, on Monday, I’ll let you know how it all really went :)

First of all, I realized too late that I might require some business cards. Arts & crafts anyone?

Yes, Callie and I were up until midnight hand-making business cards. They are novelty items. Catch them on eBay soon ;)

We were up and at ‘em much too early to tackle the long haul to the Windy City.

As a side note, if you are a Canadian road-trippin to the States, don’t forget to bring US cash for the road tolls! Oops.

Have a great weekend everyone!! xo
