Story of my life

Hi-ho, readers one and all!

I am back in the States, apparently in one piece, and raring to go.  In the coming weeks I’ll be gearing up for a bunch of Giant Dance Party appearances, and I will subject you to the announcements quite soon, I’m afraid.

A quick note or two about my recent jaunt to Spain.  It was, as one might hope, shockingly beautiful and lots of fun.  I saw old friends. Wrangled my almost two-year-old with the help of my husband, in-laws, and six-year-old niece.  And then I proceeded to discover that I was flying out on the same day that the Barcelona International Children’s Book Fair called Mon Llibre 2013 was slated to begin.  That’s right.  I managed to fly across an ocean and miss a unique and one-of-a-kind children’s book fair experience by a day.

That is all right.  I’ll just have to make a point to pay more attention in the future.  In any case, it’s great to be back!  Happy Monday!

  1. Hi Betsy,
    Welcome back from Barcelona! I am in the midst of planning my trip to Spain for August and was wondering if you could pass along where you stayed when you were in Barcelona. I am having a hard time narrowing down where I want to be and was thinking since you were just there, you might have a tip or two.
    Thank you,

  2. Wooo Hooo! Welcome Back, get your Giant Dance Party on!
