I’m still coming down from a very exciting weekend at the Bloggers at Midlife (BAM) Conference in Las Vegas. Not only did I face my fear of public speaking, I also walked away with a wealth of information, made strong connections with other bloggers and brands, and managed to squeeze in a bit of shopping (but of course).
My experience at BAM touched my heart in such a powerful way, I decided to create a new term for myself. I call it A Marigold Time. Why? Well, I’ll tell you. Since the jovial color Marigold is a perfect combination of orange (creativity, confidence, intuition, friendliness and the entrepreneurial spirit), and yellow (enthusiasm, cheerfulness, sense of humor, fun, optimism and intellect), I aligned their meanings with my divine experience in Las Vegas. BAM was indeed a perfect mix of yellow and orange.
To celebrate the joyous time spent at there, today I wear a dress which is bound to bring good cheer. It’s the perfect dress to set the tone for this style story, both, optimistic and fun.
It was refreshing to spend time in the company of others who are driven and ambitious, who never let age stop them from pursuing their dreams, and who have the desire to touch others through their stories; be it blogs or books. I left the event feeling overwhelmed with the amount of enthusiasm and support that was shared. Even in the midst of getting down to business, there were many moments of laughter… and of course, heartfelt stories. It was truly A Marigold Time.
