Finally, a Reunion



Yep, it's been awhile. It's amazing how time just gets past you. Last weekend though I was able to slow life down a bit and savor friendship. I traveled to Chicago during the ALA conference to meet up with Juliet to celebrate the new book release of our dearest Kathy Cannon Weichman! Take note of her name, I have a feeling if you are going to hear it a lot in the coming years. And Juliet and I couldn't be more proud. Kathy is a beautiful writer and an even more beautiful person. I was so honored to be able to spend time with her. The book will be out this spring. Put an order in!


Juliet and her family with the Latvian orphans

Juliet has so many irons in the fire which is normal for her. When she isn't changing the world through her work with several non-profits, she is just being an amazing mother, wife and friend. In addition she has some great forthcoming works and I have no doubt by this year's close I'll be traveling back to celebrate her accomplishments. In the meantime she is raising money to bring back the orphans from Latvia. She has opened her heart and home to them for a couple years and this year wants to do it again. You can watch her video here.


I am doing my best to keep my journal and enjoying each moment as it comes. I am so thankful for good friends.
With Juliet and Kathy

  4. Pleasure to meet the much-talked-about Kathy Wiechman (she's something of a rock star to Gina and Juliet) and to be the weekend chaffuer for the weekend these two bloggers. Braving a U.P.-worthy blizzard and eating delicious Chicago food was never so fun!

  5. Looks like your friend is a really talented person. I have a friend from http://www.paperwriting.xyz/ that writes his own book, too. He has to finish it soon and I really try to support him as much as it is possible, so he can write something really fascinating!

  6. Well, I went through my spam comments folder because I found a comment about something unrelated that had never been approved in my email and then discovered many comments that were in my spam folder and discovered yours from 3 years ago during the A - Z Challenge 2013. So sorry to finally get back to you now. Hope you are well. I'll try to visit your blog more often. Courtney - Maui Jungalow.
