Food Blog Forum Orlando (FL) 2013

Forum 1

My dear readers,

Some of you probably did not know that last weekend I have traveled to Orlando, Florida. I apologize for not posting any recipes last week. I had an honor to be selected to take part in Food Bloggers Forum among hundred participants from around the country. These have been magical three days for me and my family. Besides stay at the gorgeous Grand Floridian resort we also had tickets to four Disney parks and while I have been making new friends and learning about blogging my family had exciting time visiting "Tower of Terror" and riding Mount Everest roller coaster. The time spent was priceless and my kids wanted to stay longer. I would love to share few moments from our trip. I hope you enjoy my reporting!

Our lunch was provided by Disney Kid's Cuisine. "Make-Your-Own Nemo" dessert was the best for me. I ate three of them-))

I'm sad I wasn't selected, but I was late to apply. As it ended up our Spain trip overlapped most of the conference. We returned late Saturday night. Barcelona was amazing, but I missed seeing you and your sweet family :( From your blog post it looks like this years conference topped last years. So glad you and your family got to enjoy it all.
