It's been a crazy busy 2016 so far, so excuse the lack of blog posts.
I am a little over halfway through my tenure as writer in residence at the Annenberg Community Beach House. It has been a wonderful experience so far and you can read some of my blog entries on the City of Santa Monica's website. I'll be posting them to this blog over the next few weeks.
And, I've just returned from New York City where I was nominated for a DWAA Pat Santi Memorial Friends of Rescue Award. I didn't win, but I "won" in so many other ways on this trip!
The awards ceremony was being held at the Hotel Pennsylvania where all the dogs were gathered for the Westminster Dog Show. There were so many dogs in the lobby! This big cutie was my favorite:
My family took in some fabulous shows:
We watched the Kings beat the Rangers in a very dramatic hockey game at Madison Square Garden.
And enjoyed some rare snow for this Californian!
I came home inspired, exhausted and greeted by a very joyful blossoming peach tree!
