End of the summer greetings

Greetings from upstate New York, where I'm currently visiting family and taking some much needed R&R after months of moving and transition stress and a couple of weekends of exciting adventures in L.A. at the SCBWI conference and in Indiana for a wedding and in Chicago to catch a train. (Did I really squeeze that all into a sentence?)

Of course I had good intentions to post about the conference right away and about my other adventures right away but technical difficulties have sapped my motivation to be so timely, so I won't be this time. Instead I'll just say happy end-of-the-summer to anyone who might be stopping by here.

I hope you are enjoying the last weeks of summer as I am and I'll look forward to catching up when I'm back to my big computer and can figure out what's up and down with my pictures enough to put up real posts again.
