Hello from Home,

I didn’t sleep much last night and am having a hard time focusing, but I do have a lovely photo. This is from yesterday, which was my last day in San Francisco. I had a 4:00 flight out, which meant there was time to drop by the Hotel Vitale (with luggage in tow) for a food blogger meet-up arranged by Amy and Kalyn.

After leaving my luggage with the bell stand and taking a long walk along the Embarcadero, I headed back to the hotel restaurant and waited for the food bloggers to arrive. Luckily, I wasn’t nearly as anxious as I’d been at the Newbie Mixer and when people arrived, I felt I knew them already.

Long story short, it was a wonderful afternoon and I even worked up the nerve to ask Susan’s husband to take a picture. Here are a few of us.

After this photo was taken, more people arrived. I chatted with Sam from Becks and Posh and met Chuck from Sunday Night Dinner , Sean from Hedonia , Lynda from TasteFood and many others.  Unfortunately, I am blanking out on names and need to gather all my business cards together so I can match blogs with faces, but I enjoyed meeting each and every person!

Now onto today’s cookie!

So nice meeting you yesterday, Anna! I’m going to take some time to explore your blog and maybe bake a cookie or two… :-)

It was nice to meet you, too, Anna! The group photo is a help in putting names, faces and blogs together!
