"I wish they all could be California girls"*

I'll be an honorary California girl this weekend when I head off to the SCBWI 39th Annual Summer Conference in L.A. In case you forgot, I attended this conference a few years ago (yup, that's four links to conference posts...it was that full of inspirational information).

I've been busy reading books written by the faculty and doing 'homework' for my intensive session with Senior Editor at Delacorte Press Krista Marino. (I was avoiding watching 17 Again, but it really wasn't bad.) I'm looking forward to adding to my collection of signed books and maybe even getting some signed books for other people.

Here's my current collection of signed books. Aren't they pretty? I may have to take over a second bookshelf after this weekend! Here's a few more pretty pictures to keep you busy while I'm gone.

My pretty (and delicious) cannoli cake from Emerald's Bakery.

These were taken last summer at the Bridge of Flowers (luckily, the actual bridge isn't made of flowers because that would be a pretty crappy bridge) in Shelburne Falls, Massachussetts.

And this one is from June of last year from just after a tornado watch expired.
