Ahhhhh…finally back to a real computer and Windows Live Writer.
When I left off, the Healthy Living Summit was just beginning. There was still a day full of breakout sessions, discussions, food and fun.
Why I photographed a Frito bag, I’ll never know.
I was experimenting with white balance, ISO & the macro button, even though my camera is just a point-and-shoot. I was a macro virgin, so I was excited to play. (TWSS) The macro button on my camera looks like a flower, and creates a clear focus with blurry background photo.
After two sessions, it was lunch time. I was too overwhelmed with food choices to even think about photos! The HLS committee had planned an amazing buffet – I had a grilled vegetable and provolone sandwich with chickpea salad and fruit salad garnished with mint, all on a bed of mixed greens. That mint did wonders! Dessert was apple pie and a brownie, both pretty small bites.
The third session I attended was “The Ups and Downs of Blogging,” which I am planning on delving into a bit deeper in another post. Next was yoga, or so I thought. Jen and I walked in a little too late though because all the mats were taken. We decided to just take a stroll near our hotel.
Jen got this on the third try! Also notice my blue tint. Fail, Kendall, for leaving my white balance on a wacky setting.
White balanced fixed, we made time for some yoga in the park.
After Katie’s amazing speech ended the Summit on a very high note, we decided to take off for a quick photo-op at The Bean.
I’ll be posting a review of the Chicago Tastebud Tour and what I took away from the Summit shortly!
PS – I posted the wrong URLs for Katie and Rachel on the last post. (sorry, girls!) If you ended up at a sweet potato farm for Katie last time, you might want to try again because the links are correct now!
