There are few things in life that can get me more excited than Christmas. The Weston A. Price Foundation yearly Wise Traditions conference is right up there though. Just like Christmas, there is so much preparation and excitement, then before you know it, it’s over for another year. It’s always a rush, and goes by too fast. It is an event that can be looked back upon with many happy memories. And, with food like this, how could you not get excited?
Saturday evening awards banquet entree ~ Grass-fed pot roast with reduction sauce, roasted parsnips, carrots and mashed squash. Yum!
Well, nearly a month has past since the WAPF Wise Traditions Conference in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. I have been busy since we got back playing catch up, working, and preparing for Christmas. We had a great time! It was well worth all the planning. I was able to meet so many wonderful people like the Real Food Media bloggers, and many real food business owners. I also met so many real people, who were just there to learn. You can grab a plate of food at breakfast, lunch, or dinner and sit just about anywhere and be welcomed at a table. The biggest problem I had was that there wasn’t enough time to talk and visit with everyone you wanted to.
Tomorrow, my family and I will be traveling to King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. What for you ask? My most favorite event of the year - Wise Traditions, The Weston A. Price Foundations 11th Annual Conference. I am beyond excited! In fact, excited is an UNDERSTATEMENT! So, with passports in hand, we are packing up the kids and driving 9 (or so) hours. God bless my patient family for tolerating my desires. I was lucky enough to attend the event when it was held in San Francisco (Burlingame), California, 2 years ago. It was my first time attending a conference. I had to miss the conference last year in Chicago because the little one, was just too little to be without me all day for 4 days straight. I was so disappointed to miss it. But, what’s a mother to do? I had a much more important job that year. But, this year, that little one is old enough to have 4 fun-filled days with her dad, brother and sister while I am in seminars, eating the most fabulous food on earth, and mingling with the best real foodies! What are they going to do for 4 days in PA without me in November?
