We just got back from a wonderful four days in Chicago at the 2nd International Babywearing Conference.

Babies everywhere. More baby carriers than I’d ever dreamed seeing in one place. And wonderful, wonderful women (and some men, too!) from around the world!

The conference organizers held a gigantic raffle to benefit thebabywearer.com which is the world’s largest resource for information about baby carriers. A Sakura Bloom signature Blackberry Stripe sling was one of the prizes.

Here I am with the lucky winner—Genevieve from Pittsburgh, PA. Blackberry Stripe looks just gorgeous on Gen and her adorable son!

Congratulations to Genevieve and all of the other winners. Thanks also to the organizers for a fantastic conference!
