Good morning friends! Big day for me. I jump on a plane and head to BOSTON today! I am so excited for Healthy Living Summit, and I can’t believe it’s HERE, and I can’t believe it’s been a year since Philly.
I arrive this evening and will immediately be going to my first mini mingle, meeting up with some of the attendees for fro-yo. Friday is registration and the cocktail party, and of course the sessions Saturday. I will be using my awesome new Samsung Galaxy S3 from Verizon Wireless to live tweet (#HLS12) during the summit. i will also be tweeting, and using Instagram to share photos with those of you at home.
*Awesome feature alert, when you are looking at the screen of the new Galaxy, the screen doesn’t go dark after a certain length of time. It detects your eyes looking at the screen and stays lit. Way cool, I love it!
A couple of things I gleaned from last year that I will be sure to carry into this year include…
-Leaving enough room in my suitcase for my epic swag bag.
-wearing comfortable shoes all weekend (except for dinners/parties) so I don’t get blisters walking around the city
-bring a jacket into the conference because it was cold last year!
-bring a notebook for note taking during the sessions. last year I scribbled on scratch paper which ended up being difficult to read.
-Take more pictures! While I did take a lot last year, I want to get more candid shots this year of everyone having a good time at the summit.
-Try to talk to as many people as I can. Last year was my first conference and I was a little nervous and didn’t branch out as much as I would have liked.
To say I am excited is a severe understatement. My next blog post will be direct from Boston!
