Life is good!

2013 pictures 392After the 75 minute spin class, two batches of snickerdoodles (next post!), packing, editing pictures, laundry, feeding animals, a quick dinner, more packing, cleaning, collapsing in bed, waking before the sun and driving two dogs to the kennel on my way to the airport, I finally feel like the picture–peaceful.

I’m in North Carolina ready to attend Your Best Book–Free Expressions Workshop. I arrived at the DoubleTree Hotel and was handed a cookie. Life is good!

My family is having fun in Chicago. I’m missing them but happy they are together. Arielle completed the Chicago Marathon in two hours and forty-five minutes! She met her goal and I’m sure they’re celebrating with some Chicago-style deep dish-pizza. Yum!

I’m excited to spend this week  learning more about the craft of writing. Seven whole days to focus completely on my novel is even better than snickerdoodles, chocolate chip cookies and pizza. Life is good!

    So jealous of you right now! I love Double Tree b/c of the free cookie upon arrival 🙂 And wow, 2 hrs and 45 min? Are you for reals? That’s like what I do a HALF marathon in, lol! We’re doing the Color Run here in November if you want to join us!

      The 2 hours was Arielle not me. There’s no way I would ever run a marathon. Too painful. Thanks for the invite but I don’t think I’ll be ready for a half by November. You’re amazing with all you do! I can’t wait to see pictures of your Color Run.
