The Skirt in Action!

So, I did not win the Rita Award. It  went to the wonderful Kelly Bowen, who won a Rita last year as well.  HERE is a list of all the winners.

BUT, I had a wonderful time seeing friends and connecting with new ones. The “Book Cover Skirt” was a big hit! And the best part about wearing it was the number of people who came up to me to comment on it. I got to meet a lot of folks I would not have had the opportunity of talking with had I not been wearing this crazy skirt.


In the photo above, I am standing with the talented Wendy LaCapra (Her Duke at Daybreak). She is a new friend and our books happened to be next to each other on my “book shelf.”

I did not wear the bejeweled high heels. In fact, I didn’t even wear the “Cinderella” heels. Instead, I dialed down to a sliver wedge (they originally belonged to  my mother-in-law!) Yes, I am officially, old!

After the conference, I went to hang with my Bill Esper acting school pal, Michael, who lives in Boulder. We hiked nearly nine miles one day. The wildflowers were not-to-be-believed! And the views, stunning!

Thanks for stopping by. Now I am going to deal with the leak in my bathroom~surprisingly, not everything is romantic in my life. Sigh~
