    It was nice. I had a good time. I just wish the venue was bigger because a lot of it was a bit over crowded.

    A great experience! The food was delicious (Sticky Fingers Cupcakes are to die for), the vendors were so friendly and informative and the speakers were awesome. I especially enjoyed listening to Colleen Patrick-Goudreau and was so happy I brought one of her books for her to sign. Plus the weather behaved and it didn't rain!
