This weekend I spent my time in Atlanta at the 2nd National Conference for Black Women Who Plan and Create (BWWPC). For those who don’t know BWWPC is a group for all black women who love to plan and create. In the group, we discuss our love of planners (all types of planners) while also creating things (a wide variety of things). The conference was from Thursday to Saturday morning, and I was extremely excited about it. For the last two years, I have been interacting and talking with these ladies and couldn’t wait to meet them in person.
The entire conference was absolutely amazing. Anyone who knows me understands that I have a previous history of never feeling accepted within my own community, but these ladies gladly welcomed me with open arms. I have never felt so loved and wanted. I would absolutely attend again just for the interaction. Anywho here was the basic agenda for the weekend
