be brave

i’m happy to report i’m at donna’s inspired event this week in north carolina as one of her guests.  i feel like i’m entering a whole new world: i’m in a place where i’ve never been before, don’t know a soul (except i met donna today and she is lovely), and i’m keynoting for the first time in my life (alone) later this week in front of 300 creative souls. it’s a leap, this week. and i’m so glad to be here. i’m settling in tonite with a hot bath, hotel cable (love), room service, and whole lot of hope for the next couple of days. i can’t wait to meet new peeps, get a taste of scrapbook world meets mixed media world, hang out, eat, and hopefully not get too nervous before i speak. as i write this i can hear a ton of laughter coming from the hotel lobby. these women know how to have a good time – love that.
ps – on a funny note. today, at 4:30am i took a cab to the seattle airport. and my taxi driver? well let’s just say he was a little scary/crazy looking (and yes, i know i shouldn’t judge). but the best part? he sang, and i mean he belted, christmas songs to me the entire 30 minute drive to the airport. it was the funniest thing….and he was so hopeful and sincere about it, too.
pps – loving the thuderstorms in NC today. and the humidity (gives my teeny weeny fine hair a bit of oomph).
more soon…..wish me luck as i venture outside of my comfort zone this week. i’ve promised myself to be brave. i have an intuition that it’s going to be good:)

Sending much love,
