Let's Celebrate! 10/26/13

It's time to CELEBRATE This Week with Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build.  Every week Ruth invites us to share our celebrations from the week and link up at her blog. What a fun way to reflect on everything there is to be thankful for.

This week I'm celebrating a few things!

*throws confetti*

  1. I'm feeling better! Wednesday afternoon as I was working in my office, I started sneezing and then I kept sneezing more and more and I just knew it was a you're-about-to-be-sick kind of sneezing. It wasn't good. I stayed home and slept most of the day Thursday and Friday and have been taking this amazing stuff called Umcka and I'm feeling better. I'm still not 100% but it made such a huge difference to actually stay home and rest instead of trying to work my way through it. It's no fun being sick so I'm happy to say I'm feeling better.
  2. Today, I was at Edcamp Chicago in Wood Dale, Illinois. I absolutely love the whole Edcamp model and if you haven't been to one, keep an eye out for one near you or one you can travel to, because it's an amazing, energizing and empowering experience.
    And if you have been one, I would love to hear your thoughts and if you agree with me so share in the comments, please. I think having Edcamp in October was awesome because it was the perfect time to connect with passionate educators. 
  3. Edcamp is an awesome experience but what really makes that experience are the people. I love connecting with people via Twitter and her on the blog but meeting those connections in real life (or IRL, as I loooooove to say) is awesome. It feels like getting to hang out with college friends and friends who really know me. That's pretty awesome.
What are you celebrating this week? Please share!
