have tote, will travel

I couldn't resist one last post before flying away. My tote is now full as a tick, as Lael would say. Empty water bottle. Check. Crackers/Kashi bars. Check. Seabands for all that chop over the Rockies. Check. Good book (George Washington and Valley Forge). Check. Formal wear which I will never wear again. Check. Dogwood jewelry. Check. Uncomfortable high heels. Check. Notebook and plenty of pens. Check. Sanity. Gone! It might be fun to have a traveling companion come to think of it but I'm a solo kind of gal.

I'm not sure what kind of internet connection I'll have once there and a friend said to forget posting altogether as there will be no time. So have a blessed week if I don't touch base with you again. But I'll certainly try:)

Oh, to be like this:

  1. Laura, I hope you have a wonderful time at the conference. How I'd love to fill the seat next to you on the flight to Denver and enjoy your great company. I know you'll bless all those with whom you come in contact and trust you'll be blessed as well. May God grant you safe travel, go before you as you connect with other writers and return you to your family encouraged, enlightened and full of enthusiasm.

  2. What a cute tote bag! As my granny would say, "Y'all have a grand time"!

  3. I like your granny, Virginia:) BTW, I've been trying to email you about those great links you sent but my mail keeps coming back to me. Will try again tonight! Bless you!

  4. Keli,
    I'd so love to have your company! We'd weather the Rockies together:) I'm not a great flyer/flier? So will pray my way through. Thinking of you as I know this is an eventful week for your family. Thank you for your warm words here - I surely appreciate them.

  5. Thank you, Dana! I'm sitting in the lobby in Denver typing this. So I made it and really appreciate your good wishes. Bless you back!
