We’re up to the final day. I’m exhausted telling you about it, so imagine the exhaustion of being there. 🙂 I slept in, thankfully, then made it downstairs in time to meet some of my Southern Magic chapter mates for lunch. We went to Murphy’s Pub, where several of us regaled Christy Reece with tales of Twitter and finally convinced her to join. By afternoon, she’d done so and I became one of her first followers.

Here’s Marie Campbell and Christy Reece:

We had a great time at lunch, but then it was back to the hotel. I ran into several friends and spent time catching up, then finally ended up in the bar with Janette Kenny, Sandra Marton, and Michelle Willingham. And that, dear readers, is where I stayed until time to get ready for the RITAs. My feet were tired of walking, and I was having too much fun talking.

The RITA/GH ceremony was a lot of fun, as usual, and two of my chapter mates, Danniele Worsham and Kim Law, were up for the Golden Heart award. Kim won, and we’re very proud of her in Heart of Dixie.

And now the pictures….

First, here’s me with fellow M&B author Kimberly Lang

Now our shoes (we’re kind of known for this in HOD)

And now all the members of our chapter who went to conference

The whole week was great fun. It went by too fast, wore me out, and I can’t wait until next year! At least it’s only a drive to Nashville. This means I can take more shoes since I won’t have an airline-imposed weight restriction. Don’t tell my hubby…..

Be sure to come back on Monday when I’ll be telling my First Sale story over at Dear Author!!
