Up, up, and away!

So, if you follow me on social media, you might have already seen a few pictures from my weekend trip, but since I mentioned it in my blog post last week about new book titles, I wanted to share a few pictures here too! On Saturday, I flew to New Jersey to meet a college friend to see Madonna in concert. Atlantic City was a wet, windy mess from last weekend’s rain storm, but that didn’t dampen our fun! :)

A little history – fourteen years ago, my friend Hope and I “vogued” our way to our first Madonna concert…

Pioneering selfies before selfie was a word! :) (I called them “handhelds” back in the day…)

Fast forward from 2001 to 2015, marriage and a couple of kids later, and we are still at it! :)

Madonna was absolutely fantastic! I’ve seen her a *lot* of times, and this might be the best show I’ve ever seen. If you get a chance to see her on her Rebel Heart tour, do it! :) You won’t be disappointed, I promise.

After seeing Madonna in Atlantic City, I headed into New York City for the second half of my awesome trip. I had lunch with my editor (and got to talk about all kinds of fun bookish things!) :) before meeting some more old friends – this time fellow Gloria Estefan fans! We went to see the Broadway premiere of On Your Feet, the new show based on Gloria and her husband, Emilio’s, lives. The show was amazing! And Gloria and her family were there too! And I got to give her a hug! <3

Love her! :)

So there you have it – my awesome, amazing, whirlwind trip to New Jersey and New York, and now you get a better idea of the meaning behind my new book titles, Crazy For You and Can’t Forget You! :)

Oh! And one more bit of news…I’ve also sold a novella that will be kicking off my new series next summer – I’m very excited about it! :)



  1. You have the BEST life! :-)
