It's here! It's here! This morning I picked up the lovely Mrs. Fatass and my best buddy Matt and we headed off to the great far away land of ... Baltimore?
It's a weirdly emotional homecoming for me. I lived here when I was younger, till I was about 13, and now all these emotions and memories are coming to the surface. I used to be able to walk here to the harbor. I can remember taking the ferry over to Fells Point. I remember various family outings to watch fireworks or other fun outdoor events. I remember feeling "happy" but utterly lost and lonely and pretty much hating life.
It's also a bit of a freeing trip for me though. I'm not the girl I was when I lived here. I am stronger, wiser, smarter and I actually know who I am now.
I'm so excited for the conference. I'm excited to meet all of these bloggers who I've stalked read as I've gone through my journey. It's going to be awesome.
Mostly, I'm so totally stoked about helping Mrs. Fatass with her Zumba class Saturday morning. We're going to rock this place like no other.
Watch out, Baltimore.
