Evo Conference + USWM Giveaway Winner

Uncategorized | 14 comments

3 days in Park City for Evo Conference was not enough. It is so beautiful up there! My brain is still processing everything, but I wanted to share some photos and a few thoughts with you from the conference. It was an amazing experience an I really appreciate US Wellness Meats for sponsoring me so I could attend the event.

Congratulations, Stephanie, you are the winner of the $75 Gift Certificate to US Wellness Meats!


A few memorable tweets from throughout the conference:

Via @Greeblemonkey: “This is me, and I’m cool with me, and if you’re not cool with me, that’s YOU.” @Chookooloonks #evoconf YES.

If you are being bugged get a change of scenery #evoconf via @chookooloonks

Blogging is communication, money is secondary. Live online with passion and money will follow. #evoconf

“Incongruent living is exhausting. Just be yourself.” @brenebrown #evoconf (via @Greeblemonkey)

Is your intention to share yourself or create a persona? #evoconf

Love this quote by @brenebrown : Authenticity demands wholehearted living [in the now, as you are]. #evoconf

Sink into the joy, share it online, don’t be afraid to blog about happy things #evoconf

Courage is not the lack of fear, it is acting in spite of it. #evoconf


I loved attending the food panel by Helene, Jane, Helen Jane, and Stephanie. The food from The Alpine House was amazing and beautiful. I loved the watermelon punch. Definitely going to have to figure this one out at home.


The Alpine House was totally beautiful! We were so spoiled with a delicious meal, great friends and service, a dessert and candy counter and fabulous instructors.


Dara had no fear as she tackled a lobster during The Alpine Hous
e chef demo. YIKES!


I don’t want to bog you down with too many photos in a post, so if you’d like to see more head over to my flickr stream for the Evo Conference collection. I’ve added a few but haven’t had the chance to go through everything.

I had a great time with Maria, Helen, Kristen, Aggie, Amy, Tina, Sandy, Jane and many many more. Loved meeting Stephanie, Laura, Carissa, Erin, Jyl, and Laura for the first time…and probably a bunch more that I’m spacing on because I’m still catching up on sleep and my brain is completely saturated with information! Evo Conference is definitely a must attend next year!

    Congrats to Stephanie. I won your other US Wellness meats give away and I have been loving all the goodies. The chicken breasts are huge! The slow cooked BBQ beef is amazing! I think I would get $75 worth of that!
