Pause-Wine-Bar

 Heather, Mo, and Kate 

I had the fun opportunity to go to my first San Francisco Blogger meetup! It was held at this lovely place called Pause Wine Bar (the  bar area had chalkboard walls! So neat!) I really need to attend more of these. It was definitely good for this bloggers’ soul. I loved being able to relate with other gals when it comes to certain thoughts on blogging. Questions like “is it weird I put myself out there for the world”, “Do I have a strong blog name”, ” do you also take it as a compliment when someone apologizes for blog stalking you”, etc. I usually try to not talk non-bloggers ears off about blogging because I’m afraid it might bore them to death. Here I  got a real sense everyone was equally eager to listen and talk about each others blogs. We were bouncing ideas off each other and getting inspired.  Another really neat thing I noticed was how easy it was chatting with these ladies. Even though we all have different blogs, we were all in the same boat which automatically gives off a sense of camaraderie.  Yes, the initial intro when you say “my blogs name is….” was kind of awkward saying out loud. I’ve never verbally said “I have a blog called A Girl In Transit” in a conversation before. I always refer to it as “my blog”. But again, once we get past the formalities it was such natural and fun conversation. I’m really hoping more of these meetups get planned in the future. You can bet I’ll be attending the next one!

Thank you so much Serena and Stephanie for planning this event!

      Thanks so much Kate! I have an old Canon EOS D60, but the lens is new. It’s a 50mm 1.4. I love my lens. I have to admit though that because of the dim lighting the photos did not naturally look like this. I did some touch ups in photoshop =) I’m glad you like them!

    These photos are beautiful. I really wanted to go to this meet up and am so sad I missed out. I will definitely try to catch the next one. That feeling of camaraderie can do a lot for the soul :) My cousin Kate from Undeniable Style actually pointed me to your blog. I adore the design. Beautiful. I heart the chalkboard details!
