Hello!  We hope you are all enjoying your summer!  The time has come to pop in with a very important post–one specifically to THANK all our incredible sponsors from Blend 2014!  Blend Retreat was founded on the premise of hanging out with blog friends in real life, rather than just virtually, and to spend a weekend focusing on food & fitness-related activities with like-minded folks.  The fun and fellowship experienced at Blend Retreat could never be possible if it weren’t for our incredible sponsors!

As you can see in the photo below, the 2014 Blend Retreat was backed by a plethora of awesome companies who packed the swag bags full!  In addition to all the products you see here, several companies also contributed funds that went toward meals, activities, and events throughout the weekend.  We could not have pulled off the retreat without each and every sponsor featured here.  And for this, we say THANK YOU!

I am so impressed that so many wonderful companies have realized the importance and power of bloggers as influencers and enthusiasts. I got to try so many new products that I may never have discoverd otherwise. In turn, I am new fan of several new brands! Special thanks to Balance Bar who sponsored me and to the many kind, wonderful folks from various companies who hung out with us all weekend. I had so much fun and can’t wait for the next!
