Happiness is...

  • going to a book signing for a friend and critique partner. Yay Val!

  • going to a second book signing for another friend and critique partner. Yay Kim!
  • finding the new Nathaniel Fludd book at the book store and running into the author before we leave! Thanks Robin for the impromptu signing :)
  • discovering that my novel is in a 6-way face-off in RLGL. Woo-hoo!! 
  • substituting for 3rd Grade on the day of the talent show and Fun Day. I can't believe they're paying me for this today!

I guess you could say I've got a lot to be happy for :)
What's making you happy today?

Congratulations to your friends and their books, as well as your story being in the face off.

As for happy -- today is our last day of school (we homeschool) and Sunday we leave for Grand Teton NP, my favorite of all the parks. :)

Sounds like you have a lot to be happy for. For me, today, happiness is doing a walk for a cause that means a lot to me--canine cancer research--and getting to spend the morning surrounded by four-legged friends!
