Off to Kindling Words 2018

Off to Vermont today for Kindling Words writing retreat. Can't wait! KW is always wonderful, and I'm especially excited this year as I was invited to be one of the guest speakers! Here's hoping I manage to say something quasi-intelligent, and don't start clucking like a chicken in the middle of my talk.......

DRINK SLAY LOVE Movie Viewing Party

Photos of the vampire-themed treats from my recent celebration of the #DrinkSlayLove movie premiere!  We had Buffy Brownies, The Count's Cookies, Edward Cullen Cupcakes, Vampire Donuts..... and of course, in honor of Pearl, plenty of mint chocolate chip ice cream!

I just learned that the movie is now available On Demand!  So if you missed it last weekend, you can watch anytime within about a month of today, either via your cable box, mylifetime.com, or the Lifetime app.


ETA: For those of you who don't have cable, it's now also available on iTunes!
