So, I am SUPER duper excited to be attending Food Blog South 2012, which is a food blogging conference in Birmingham, AL! The event takes place on Saturday, January 28th.

There are going to be some pretty awesome speakers there this year, and I think I'm most excited to hear Hélène Dujardin. Her blog, Tartelette, was one of the very first blogs that I started to follow way back when. She is one of the reasons that I started blogging in the first place!
Here's the official info from the site...Hope to see you there! :
