While I didn't get back from a trip to Europe this week (lovely Portland, Oregon, yes; Paris, France, no...), my good friend Brett recently returned from the City of Light and just look at the luggage tags he and his traveling companions put on their suitcases!! LOVE IT! (I'll be giving more luggage tags away on my November Fresh Fiction contest, btw, so if you're interested... ;)
Speaking of travel, I had a wonderful time at the women's fiction writing retreat on Mt. Hood. We did a lot of work (she said, crossing her fingers behind her back), and we also ate some delicious things (no finger-crossing needed on that one!), including these "Voodoo" donuts that I'd heard about and always wanted to try: Maple Bacon Bars. SO. GOOD. Take a peek at what they looked like inside the pretty pink box!
I was with fellow authors (L to R) Erika Robuck, Sarah McCoy, Jael McHenry, Sarah R. Callender (kneeling in front), Therese Walsh, Kristina McMorris, (me), Margaret Dilloway and Julie Kibler. Here we are taking over Trader Joe's:
We needed to pick up a few bottles of wine... Having a glass or three helps, um, with plotting. No, really.
In the blogging world, I'm traveling today, too, and will be at Magical Musings talking about trusting your intuition. Hope you'll join me!! Have a wonderful weekend!
