New York or Bust!

Happy new year! It's official, I'm going to New York at the end of this month.  I am a member of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) and I am going to one of their annual conferences.

I am beyond excited.  And nervous.  You know all of those self doubting inner thoughts?  Well I have them, but not enough of them to keep me from going.  I think this trip will be rewarding, intense, informative and fun!  So that is one of the things I have been busy with, mulling over and all that.  I'm putting my shop in vacation mode while I get everything ready for the trip, it will re-open February 8, mark your calendar.

Besides that, we bought a juicer!  When I finish this post I'm going to make the first batch of juice, green lemonade.  This past holiday season was the healthiest I've had, I'm bringing my lunch to work and now we can make our own healthy concoctions at home.

2010 is starting out to be a fantastic year and we're only four days in.
