A couple of months ago I had the great pleasure of heading out to Indy with Delta Faucet. While you may not instantly think a trip about faucets would be a great pleasure, I can tell you wholeheartedly it was. I have been on a many, many trips with brands in the past, but this particular event was extra special, not only because of the brand but certainly because of the small but amazing group of bloggers and designers I had the good fortune to be surrounded by.
