This was the year I attended and spoke at my fifth Alt Summit.
This was the year that patterned pants, pixie haircuts and brightly colored hair, black and white outfits, baby bellies, booties and smoking loafers, braids, wide-brimmed hats, bright and bold flowers, more than 10 men in attendance, balloons everywhere, and tulle skirts were definitely trending.
This was the year I discovered the Grand America‘s incredible lattes, and wondered why I’d missing out on them for the past four years. It was also the year that I only attended my own panel and spent the rest of the time making Alt work for me in the best possible way.
This was the year that smoke machines were in.
This was the year where my biggest disappointment was missing out on holding a fox, a skunk, and a parrot.
This was the year that black, gold, triple thick edged, and extra special goodies trended in business cards. And where I gave out a round I’ve Gotta Design Crush sticker instead.

This was the year we all dressed in green and partied beneath monstrous cutout paper flowers thanks to Cricut.
This was also the year we hopped between ELEVEN themed mini parties.
This was the year we maybe broke our photobooth record by hitting every. single. one.
Thanks for another amazing year, Alt!
