Celebrating the Plums...

Today was filled with a bit o' the unexpected when I was informed that I received the Plums Award for creative nonfiction. Really? Me? Ok--well, that made my day!

Vinny helped me to celebrate by buying me plums. Now really, how sweet is that?

And since my good friend and writing companion, Erin, won the Plum for fiction, I'm saving one for her.

However, Plums weren't all I got... LOOK! I got more sidewalk chalk, too!

I am very excited--can you tell?

(ps. the 2nd picture is,
quite possibly, the worst photo ever taken of me [or not].
however, I am so proud of my chalk
that I have decided to post it anyway)

So glad to see your smiling face...wish I could be there to decorate the sidewalks with you.
