Home Again, Home Again

Details soon--as soon as I can process it all.

Being home is wonderful! Nothing compares to the giant hugs and kisses.

While I'm thinking about what to say about BlogHer, please visit WhyMommy.

WhyMommy was going to join us this weekend, but due to Inflammatory Breast Cancer had to cancel her trip. I can tell you that she was missed. Having roomed with her best friend, I can promise you that she was missed terribly.

Her physical absence did not prevent her from generating conversations in Chicago though. The message is getting out. WhyMommy is using her experience with this most aggressive form of breast cancer to make more people aware of it. And for that, I bow to her.

Did you room with canape? Lucky girl, you. She's lovely.

I'm only now beginning to understand how wonderful this conference really is. Next year, maybe...

Thanks for visiting my site! Nice to meet you.

slouching mom said...

Oh, and yes, of course. WhyMommy rocks. She's incredible.

Design Mom said...

Glad you're home. And I can't wait to read your report.

Lawyer Mama said...

Yes, I wish I'd gotten to meet WhyMommy. But I'm sure she was there in spirit.

It was fanfuckingtastic to meet you, girlie!

Jenny said...

Terrible...but important.

I'm going there now.

Jenny said...

Oh and on a totally selfish note...I'm so glad I got to meet you!

Angela said...

I just got here, but I just lost an aunt to cancer recently and I just wanted to say God Bless!

Absolutely Bananas said...

I just have to say that I LOVED meeting you and getting to hang out with you. You are awesome. And now I have to figure out how to move you to Seattle so we can hang out all the time!!

Glad you had a good time, ML!!!

WhyMommy said...

Oh, and I missed you gals!

So much!

She was there in spirit. I have read a few of these posts and it is scary.

It was so great to meet you and uh, thanks for the reminder about Sat night - I don't remember that, but I believe you!

Mrs. Incredible said...

That is SCARY. She's in my thoughts today.

Lisa said...

It was wonderful meeting you. You are an amazing, FUN, hot mamma. You were one of the first people I told my husband about. I adore you (and your awesome, sexy dress too!)

Worker Mommy said...

I have definitely visited her site. Breast cancer has affected my life as well as my mom was diagnosed last October. So I very much understand the need for awareness and how crucial support is!

Can't wait to hear your BlogHer stories!

MamaLee said...

I thought about you all weekend, my dear! YOU are one of the hotties that I would've made a B line to meet.

From everything that I've seen and read so far, it looked like a fabulous time! SO glad it was so good for your soul, babe!

xoxo

it was great to meet you this weekend - you have the best smile that just embraces everyone.

Jen M. said...

I sure hope she realizes the level of awareness she has brought to this issue. I had only vaguely heard of it before her. I pray for her healing!

Oh wow, I want to hear about Blogher. Am jealous.

Thanks for writing about WhyMommy. I will visit her site. Very sad.
