The Sunday Post #83 – Weekly Wrap-up
Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you to Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.
If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you must have seen all the photos I’ve posted everywhere to share all the fun and shenanigans from BEA this week. I had a total blast. So much fun to spend time with fellow bloggers in real life, to chat about books, stand in lines, meet authors and just hang out. And I have to say, even if I’m elated to have met several authors I admire, and gotten a lot of books I can’t wait to read, my favorite moments were those I spent with bloggers. They are all even more amazing in real life than they are online, and we shared many laughs, bookish moments and we all fangirled together over our favorite authors who were in attendance.
The Chicago weather didn’t cooperate as much as it could have – but we did spend most of our days inside of the convention hall, so that was quite all right. Between high tea at the Drake, Champagne tasting, great food, pizza and making new memories, there was also a lot of waling every day! I reached over 10’000 steps every day, and that doesn’t really happen that often. Here are some pictures that can also be found on my Facebook profile, too, if you want to know more about what I was up to at BEA 🙂
After the first day of BEA, Brandee (my now Blogger-wife) from Bookworm Brandee and her friend Denise took me to see a baseball game – they popped my cherry, as there is no baseball in Europe… – and that was a lot of fun, too!
It was really, really sad to say goodbye to all the other bloggers, who left for home yesterday, while I’m only leaving this evening. But my head and my heart are full of new, wonderful memories made with friends I hope I will be able to meet again very soon! Our last evening together was on Friday the 13th… when we went for some Mexican so we had a good excuse to have some margaritas 😉
