"It's My Party & I'll Cry If I Want To"

Happy Friday Everyone,

I believe Little Lesley Gore (my Dad always called her "Little Lesley Gore") sang that song (the title of this post).

Okay, it's not really my party and I'm not planning on crying, but it is my birthday. :-)

I love my birthday because it comes in the fall (and pretty much always have had fun on my birthday). Also, I really like the cooler weather, the Holidays coming up, that warm and cozy feeling you get when you snuggle down under the blankets, or when you drink hot chocolate or tea. Or, when I was growing up, when my dad would light a fire in the fire place and we'd watch it crackle and sparks fly up the chimney.

My birthday is smack dab in the middle of all those things starting to happen. It's far enough into fall, that I can feel the weather changing down here in the deep South, but it's also early enough that it doesn't collide with the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays.

This weekend is the Lone Star Conference and all of you who are going, we're gonna have a great time--I can sense it. There's so much that's going to be happening: Speakers, agent appointments, raffles, final placement of the Lone Star Contest finalists, mingling and networking. It'll be a  full day, that's for sure.

Tonight is the Meet & Greet and I think it's going to be fun, too. A nice, laid back way of saying hello to everyone (and reconnecting with those we already know).

I hope everyone enjoys their Friday (TGIF for all of you who have been waiting and waiting for Friday to arrive) and have a very pleasant weekend.

Also, find a good book, curl under a blanket with some hot tea or hot chocolate and get that warm, cozy feeling that Fall brings :-)

Question for the day:  What are your plans for today and this weekend?

Have A Fantastic, Fun-Filled Friday!

Hey, I like this new look too!! Happy Birthday! Aren't you loving this weather? It just makes me feel happy and like anything is possible. Good luck at the conference, I am going to be running errands, writing, and other boring stuff.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I am enjoying the cooler weather. But I don't think writing should be lumped with the "boring stuff" LOL

Thanks for dropping by, hope to see you at the November meeting :-)
