SLICE OF LIFE- My Own Personal Colorado All Write
I really wanted to go to Indiana for All-Write.
The lineup of speakers looked fabulous.
And I really, really, really wanted to meet all of the people who I have come to know online over the past few years.
But I have a kid in college.
And another one that will probably be going within the next year.
And travel just isn't a possibility right now.
I was really sad.
But then, it turned out ok.
I kind of had my own little personal "All-Write."
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Mary Lee, you know, the world famous blogger and poet, emailed me. She was coming to Colorado to see her mom. On Saturday she was going to be in Denver. She wondered if I might be free.
Was I free?
To see one of my all time favorite on-line friends?!?
The person who has rescued me from numerous online blogging crises???
And sent notes and care packages when the bottom dropped out?
And brought red velvet cupcakes to my boys?
YOU BETCHA I WAS FREE!
And we had a terrific day!
Mary Lee and I met at the Botanic Gardens.
Photographed the flowers (that was Mary Lee!).
Watched the bees (that was me!).
Shared book titles.
And school stories.
And life tales.
Went to lunch by the Tattered Cover.
And didn't even go in to buy any books!
It was a really lovely day.
Almost like my own personal Colorado All-Write!
Thanks, friend, for such a delightful day!
