Haven 2013


Hey Guys!  Hope you have had a great first half of the week!

Today, I am so excited to share with you something I am so proud to be a part of…Haven 2013!


My fellow team members and I are getting SO excited for the upcoming Haven Conference this summer!

Last year was our first year and it was a huge success – we are pumped for another year! This year Haven will be held at the beautiful Buckhead Grand Hyatt in Atlanta, Georgia from Thursday, August 1 to Saturday, August 3.

Just in case you don’t know the Haven team, here we are:

It includes myself, Beth from Home Stories A to Z, Chris from Just a Girl, Rhoda from Southern Hospitality and Sarah from Thrifty Décor Chick. Oh, and we can’t forget our rock star event planner, Kristin, who is a BIG part of making the details of the location and logistics happen.

First and foremost, we need to give a BIG shout out to our awesome sponsors – The Home Depot, Frogtape, Rustoleum and GMC just to name a few:

We’re busy finalizing the sessions for the conference and we have an incredible group of designers, bloggers, and business people who will be sharing their knowledge with attendees. Go here to see who will be joining us (we are still adding them so check back often!).

The conference is sold out but we will be offering five ticket giveaways on our blogs over the next few weeks:

May 13th:  Just a Girl
May 20th:  Home Stories A to Z
May 27th:  Beneath My Heart
June 3rd:  Southern Hospitality
June 10th:   Thrifty Decor Chick

If you’d like to join us and don’t have a ticket keep an eye out for each of those! And if you aren’t already following us on Facebook here than please do so – many have to sell their tickets as we get closer to the conference and will announce it there. (Just a reminder to ticket holders – there will be no transfers honored after July 1st!)

If you already have your ticket, you should have received an invite to the Haven Mavens (private) Facebook group.  If you didn’t get an invite, email me at beneathmyheart4(at)gmail(dot)com to let me know, so I can get you added on. It’s a great place to chat and “meet” each other before the conference!

We’ve also created a Haven Conference Instagram account – you can follow it at “havenconf”.

We’ve also started up a linky party over at the Haven Conference site (for attendees) – if you are joining us please link up your blog and visit those who will be attending as well!


And of course, feel free to add the Haven Maven button to your blog to let everyone know you’ll be there!

{There are more cute buttons on our Haven website, so be sure to check them out!)

Are any of my wonderful Beneath My Heart

readers attending the

Haven conference this year?

Please be sure to let me know in the comments. Smile



Have a blessed day!


  1. I’m travelling halfway across the world to be there! No, not really, but I’m coming all the way from Canada, which is pretty far! Can’t wait!

  2. Oh Traci – I wish I was twenty years (or more) younger and was coming to Haven. But, I look forward to all of the blogs reporting back after it is over.
