My first award goes to the BlogHer founder I cried all over this afternoon.
We met Jory at the Newbie Mixer, and she was nice and came up and said hi, and I was impressed that the Founders were wandering and chatting, but I really shouldn't have been.
Let's fast-forward to the Macy's cocktail party.
I think we're a little past polite hellos at this point, don't you?
Jory gets this award for being one of the awesome BlogHer founders, which means it's all her fault I even came.
She gets it for being a freaking awesomely fun person to hang out with, and also because she was doing all this awesome hanging out with me.
She gets it for putting up with me telling her "I LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH!" about fifty bajillion times over the course of the weekend (although, let's be honest, who doesn't want to hear that?), and for enduring me crying all over her on my way out of the hotel. And also for being the person I wanted to be crying all over at the end of it all.
Jory Des Jardin: If I could have put her in my purse and taken her everywhere with me, I totally would have. Jory, in case I didn't mention this - like, ever - I LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH.
