oh you guys! i'm back from alt summit and had the most amazing time. by now you know me well enough to know that sometimes, post-event, my brain just can't recover quickly enough to write a proper post. sometimes i have to let the pictures do the talking. this is definitely one of those times. but as you'll see, alt was incredible! beautiful, inspiring, helpful, and oh. my. goodness. that. hotel. i felt like a princess or a celebrity or something. it was awesome.
and now...my pictures from alt. all 6,072 of them. (sorry about the load speed, travis).

was that enough pictures? i promise i tried to edit! it was a great time and i've probably never lived the glamorous life quite like that before. and that's just the first half of my trip! from there i was off to speak at a women's retreat for a church in san diego. but that's a post for another day. for now, i'm home and loving snuggling my hubby and my babies. and finally getting some sleep!
