Melanie's Thoughts and Ramblings -- Welcome to my crazy world!
I'm going to try to get better at this whole blogging thing. I swear! As in regular posts and all.
I've been blessed to meet so many wonderful and talented women and men in the author world. They are rays of sunshine! Sitting behind a computer day after day gets incredibly lonely at times, so it's nice to hop online, chit chat for a bit then get back to work.
It's been a dream to meet many of the authors that I've worked with over the years, but I haven't traveled much in the last few years because of my daughter's health. I promised this year would be the year! I'm starting off with baby steps!
First up a trip to Hilton Head Island to hook up with my Crazy Lady Sisters for an amazing author retreat! I am looking forward to hugging each of these wonderful women! They've been there through the ups and downs. And even though we are separated by hundreds of miles, it doesn't stop us from being close and sharing our lives with one another.
After Hilton Head, I get to meet up with my amazing narrator Hollie Jackson and her wonderful hubby, Dragon. I can't wait! I'm packing up the family and we are headed to Chicago for a day of exploring! Pizza from Giordano's will be involved! We're going to check out the Field Museum, which happens to be one of my absolute favorite museums to visit.
I checked out their website today to find out if there were any super cool exhibits going on over the summer. I literally squeeeed when I saw they have the First Chinese Emperor and his Terracotta Army. It's going to be cool as hell to see in person! I've been to the Field Museum several times over the years, my hubby and I were regulars when we lived in the area. Some of my favorite that I've seen there are Cleopatra and Kremlin Gold. I also really love the Ancient Egypt section. Matthew is super psyched to go see all the mummies and Sue the largest and most intact T-Rex ever found!
It's gonna be fun!
