|Midwest Boomer Bloggers with our hosts.|
Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Boomer Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

I was in the heart of downtown Chicago, aka the "Loop," which includes many shops, restaurants, buildings and artwork.
My trip included two nights in the beautiful Allerton Hotel and two days in the John Hancock Center.
Like Shakespeare's characters, I had a rollicking good time near the longest day of the year. During my stay in Chicago, I got to meet 15 other midlife bloggers from the Midwest. It was a dream come true.

Another blogger "beamed" that to me. How does that work?
1. The first person selects a photo from the camera gallery.
2. Then she and her friend tap the backs of their phones together.
3. The picture then copies from the first phone to the second.

We will be working together over the next six months as Verizon Ambassadors. However, I am hoping to have a longer connection with this group of articulate, talented, dynamic and warm women.
How marvelous to see the people behind the blogs and the tweets that I have been reading for months prior!
I enjoyed connecting with other midlife bloggers as we soaked up the sights in downtown Chicago.
