Too my friends…

I’m back from LDStorymakers! BEST CONFERENCE EVER! I learned so much. But I think the best part for me was meeting so many blog friends that I LOVE! So here is a little shout out to each of you. (I stole the pics from Leigh. I suck at taking pictures)

Emily King—Such a cute pregnant girl! You’re so sweet and positive, just like I thought you would be :) I love you girl.

LeighCovington (Abby)—Oh my gosh, can we just be neighbors and you can make me laugh every day? Think of all the plot problems we could work out.

I know I look like a drunken weirdo. 

Deana Barnhart—Such a darling accent! And you are just as sweet in person as you are online.

David Powers King—You’re smart, funny, and surprisingly soft spoken. Rock that full request!

Erin Summerhill—You’re magic! I’m excited to see who you land an agent for this time. And you are by far my FAVORITE creepy photographer!

Leslie Pugh—I loved meeting you :) So much fun!

Jessie Humphries—Your energy is contagious. And your self-deprecating humor kills me :) You’re so not a B-word!

Emily, David, Jessie, Erin, Leslie
Peggy Eddleman—Your smarts and success intimidate me a little, but in person you are so kind. I love that.

Chantel Sedgwick—Another cute pregnant mama! And I don’t believe for a second that you are shy :)

Katie Dodge—Gorgeous in real life. Seriously :)

Ruth Josse—I love your peaceful demeanor. I’m so serious about the arranged marriage :)

Melanie Fowler—I love your spunky spirit. It makes me smile.

Front Row: Jeigh, Chantele, Katie, Ruth, Leigh, Me. Back Row: Tasha, David, Jessie, Mel

Jeigh Meredith—I can’t get over how young you look. Do you get sick of hearing that?

Brenda Sills—You are so cute in person and you totally rock hats :)

Chad Morris—Yay for your secret! Will you announce it soon so I can celebrate publicly?

ShellyMorris (Downtown Shelly Brown)—You’re so cute. I could fit you in my pocket, but I think you would wiggle out!

Donna Weaver—I have my fingers crossed for you. Can’t wait to hold your book in my hands.

Brittany Larsen—Get me those pages! Augh! I’m so excited for you.

Tasha Seegmiller—I’m not going to comment on how tall you are :) Just on how freaking talented you are—contest runner up!

Robin Weeks—Your laugh is contagious. Keep querying! I love the concept of your book!

Illima Todd—I love your imagination. I hope you rock your full request too :)

Shallee McArthur—You’re too cute pregnant also! It isn’t fair :) I loved your smile.

Amber Argyle—I can’t wait to read your book!!! I’m ready to be blown away.

Kim Karras—I was so excited to meet you and I’m serious about looking at your book, so get those last two chapters done.

Jen Bennett—How did I miss you until the last minute? My loss.

JoLynne Lyon—We sat across from each other at dinner and you never said what a weirdo I was for not remembering you. Congrats on your win :)

Cassie Cook—Now Cass wasn’t at Storymakers, but we had dinner Saturday night. Jealous? I know you are. Cassie is hilarious in person. We laughed for 3 hours. Laughed until I had a headache.

Did I miss someone? Gosh I hope not. I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for giving me hugs and being  sweet to me. I can’t wait until next year :)
