Lucy and I took the ultimate dog mom road trip to get to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for BlogPaws 2017, the annual conference for pet bloggers and industry influencers. This was the biggest trip Lucy and I have ever taken together, so I was excited to share so many new memories and experiences with her. I planned our trip so that we could take a few days to drive down and back to Myrtle Beach since it’s about 10 hours away.

Along the way I filmed a video diary of our trip and all the stylish dog mom fun we enjoyed, including hikes and shopping in Virginia and North Carolina and all the excitement of the conference including winning an award for Best Pet Blog Design! Somehow I managed to squeeze more than a week into about seven minutes! Stay tuned for more blog posts that will go into details about all of our stops. I will add links to all the posts about our trip at the bottom of this post as they go live.

Ultimate Dog Mom Road Trip Video Journal

I want to extend a huge thank you to all the amazing people we met along the way, many of whom helped me take some of this video footage! The pet blogging community that comes out for BlogPaws is full of inspirational people and pets that have reignited my passion for what I do.

Below are just a few photos from the conference showing BlogPaws’ Chloe DeVita, our friend Rochelle from The Broke Dog presenting at her session and Lucy and I stopping by the Pet World Insider media booth. View more conference photos by Carl Kerridge Photography.

There’s also a great write up about BlogPaws on the Consumers Advocate blog. It’s a long, in-depth piece that features a lot of the people and highlights of the week. Look for a cameo by your’s truly!

 Thank you to Up Country Inc. for providing Lucy’s collar and leash wardrobe for the conference! We got a lot of compliments on the Seaglass pattern and the Alligator/Palm Tree print.  Plus, they also coordinated perfectly with my own outfits!
