Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

We're not doing anything special today, really. Brandon might brave the cold and melting snow to make steaks on the grill, but that's about it. How about you?

The big blog updates are pretty difficult for me. I haven't written a thing about the trip to NY and the SCBWI conference, and the longer I go without doing it, the more difficult it gets to start. Well I guess I will just say it was pretty amazing. Alexis and Rob were wonderful hosts who took me to some great restaurants, helped me figure out the small bit of navigating I needed to do, and generally showed me a good time.

The conference was great, although when I left my feelings were a mixture of depression and fortitude. There are so many other people in the world who want to do what I want to do, but I can't let that cause me to give up!

Here is Alexis and I being rock stars in Prospect Park.

The lake there was frozen solid; we couldn't even break it with a large rock. Here are birds walking on water.

I had a delicious bagel, but it had too much cream cheese.

After I came back into town, we got a lot of snow. So Brandon and I made a new friend.

Hope you're having a good February. So far this year is turning out great.
