Sharing By The Shore (Northern Michigan)

Behind the scenes of food blogging- Sharing By The Shore, a Northern Michigan Blogger Retreat

Sharing By The Shore- a Northern Michigan Blogger Retreat

The only thing better than being able to say that I photograph food and write recipes for a living is that I get to meet so many wonderful people doing it. From working with brands that I love, to making friends with women around the country I love blogging because of the people behind the computer screens.

Recently I was able to connect with some of these ladies at a blog conference/retreat in Northern Michigan- Sharing by the Shore. So much of the weekend was spent learning and teaching that I often forgot to take my camera out to snap photos, but I managed to grab a few to share a little behind-the-scenes peek.

Preparing Meals Together

When we weren’t in session we were cooking together. you could always find us around the kitchen island preparing meals and enjoying one another’s company while we divided up kitchen tasks.

Starting the Day Together

We also had some serious breakfast fuel- I couldn’t get enough! Dairy is an important protein source to my family so I was excited to learn about local Michigan dairy. All of the food we cooked during our weekend was generously provided by Milk Means More, Door To Door Organics, Sabra and Bob’s Red Mill.

Hitting the Town Together

Somehow between all of our home-cooked meals and sessions we found time to hit the town and see what Traverse City and Suttons Bay had to offer. We enjoyed time at L. Mawby WineryCherry Republic, and Aerie.
