Last weekend, I attended my first ALA (American Library Association) meeting. A person can truly become overwhelmed by the amount of books and book people at ALA. Perhaps that is why this is the ONLY picture I took the whole time.
|This picture is special because it was the treat I shared with my amazing editor, Bethany Strout. This was the first time I met her in person. You really get to like a person who orders Martinis and fries with ketchup AND mayo.|
|Next up, our family celebrated July 4th. I said to hubby, "Would you please help me make a fruit salad?" and this is what he created. I need to ask him for more help in the kitchen! I think he's been holding out on me.|
|Perhaps my favorite event of the summer so far was celebrating my daughter's|
tenth birthday. Ten years? What? Where has the time gone?
|The birthday party had a mustache theme. And books! Lots of books, of course. WONDER by R.J. Palacio, two BIG NATE books, GONE FISHING by Tamera Will Wissinger and a giant collection of classic comics, just to name a few.|
So that's what I've been up to. I think I'll take a nap now.
