Connecting over tea...

Yesterday afternoon, I had the lovely opportunity to attend my first blogger event. On a cold and damp London afternoon, tucked away in Covent Garden, twenty UK/European based blogger's met for that most perfect way to while away several hours....afternoon tea.

Brilliantly organised by Selena of Oh, the places we will go, we met in the Mercer Hotel in the Seven Dials area of Covent Garden. It was such a lovely time to put faces to several names/blogs that I have followed for a while, and also to meet so many other lovely blog authors. The hours flew by...appropriately accompanied by bubbles, sandwiches and baked goods.

Although I've now had this blog for a few years, it was the first chance I'd had to connect with this community in a real sense - and one I hope to repeat in the future.

It was lovely to meet you all...

Gina from Sweet Serenity
Mandy from Emm in London
Erin from Erin Out and About
Sarah from The Wanderblogger
Bonnie from A Compass Rose
Tina from Girl Meets Globe
Jacintha from Urban Pixxels
Anna from Eat, See, Do 
Janelle from The Halfpenny Diaries
Kara from Pen Plus Passport
Shobha from NYLon Living
Melanie from Melanie Fontaine
Samantha from To the Days Like This

I hope you all enjoyed the afternoon as much as I did - and thanks again to Selena for organising such a wonderful event!
