Getting Ready for Relevant!

Ok, so many of you know I'm going to my very first blogging conference this week. In fact, there are a lot of firsts for me surrounding this trip:

  • my first blog conference
  • my first train ride
  • my first time ever seeing any mountains (since I'll be riding through them)
  • my first time away from home, away from my family (I have 5 children, 8 & under. The baby I'm bringing with me).

Let me tell you, I am nervous. I'm not nervous about meeting new people or traveling.

I'm nervous about being homesick.

I'm also having some feelings of guilt for leaving. Anyone else who's going to Relevant experiencing this?

I'm feeling "crunch time" as I prepare to leave. Feeling rather stressed!

Yes, I'm totally excited to meet people in real life that I've gotten to know over that last months and several years. I'm excited to meet new people and learn new things. But I'm nervous about being out of my comfort zone (being away from home) . I can't help but feel slightly guilty for having so much free time on my hands (once I get there).

My husband is excited that I'm going, too, because he believes it'll be good for me. I agree!

My emotions are just so all over the place!!!!! It's crazy!

Please tell me I'm not alone!
