#ad Ford Trend Conference #fordespanol #fordtrends

::Momma Disclosure:: {This is not a compensated post. I was invited by Ford Espanol to attend the Ford Trend Conference this year. Compensation was given in form of travel and lodging expenses. The statements below are both my true and honest opinion.}

This morning my routine was pretty usual. I got dressed and ready to go, dropped my kids off at daycare, kissed them good-bye and told them to behave.  Instead of heading to my regular 8 to 5 though; I had a packed suite case in the back of my truck and a knot in my stomach as I rode to the airport. My nerves have been on edge since last night. 

As a Blogger I have had several experiences here locally in Houston, never leaving my children or Husband for more than an 8 hour day or a 4 hour evening. Today ::deep breath:: I will have an entirely new experience, away from my home and family. But, not without their undying love and most incredible support. 

As I sit here having made it through the high tech, yes, "high tech" check-in system and not so bad security check waiting for my flight to take off; I have that "Home Alone" feeling. That feeling that I am forgetting something. Did I pack everything I need? Will this empty nervous feeling fade soon? How will this trip go and will I succeed? 

Truth is no matter how many people I have met over the years or how many conferences and fears I have already conquered this year there is always the doubt and fear that it may just not go as planned. 

But, then I am reminded why I am here. Not only have I been selected to attend but I am capable of so much more and I am here to succeed. I find strength and gain confidence with the knowledge that I have a beautiful family waiting for me at home. Watching my every move. Loving me no matter what. 

My knowledge is about to be expanded and I can't wait to see what the next few days of growth and learning hold for me. I am over the top excited to meet everyone and take in all of their inspiration and motivation. 

I am headed to the Ford Trend Conference in Dearborn, Michigan. Michigan is a state that I hold deep in my roots, my family migrated there years ago from their homeland of Mexico to the promise-land that is the U.S.. I have uncles and family who still live there. A piece of my heart is there.  

Are you ready to take this Momma Adventure with me?
