Holy cow, it has been a blustery weekend in Wisconsin!

Made better much better by good books (currently on the shelf: Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy and Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt, an amazing author who I met at the Festival of Faith and Writing), amazing friends and family, and a smashing wedding.

My best friend, Amanda Lynn-Marie (Parish) Jorgenson got married this weekend and I had the honor (really, it was!) of being her maid of honor. And I think I have some neat story ideas thanks to the experience including, but not limited to: the “flower girl posse”, a 48 oz. bag of Craisins, a giant yellow smiley face beach ball rolling down the highway, 4 tornados, and much, MUCH more!
