When we got there, I lost my voice.
I wish I was kidding, but I’m not.
On the day I got to go to the “Catholic Oscars” and meet Jen, Hallie, Danielle, Kate, Elizabeth and a whole lot of other wonderful people, I arrived with a raspy voice sounding like Myrtle from Boca who’s been mainlining nicotine for the last 30 years.
Yep, that’s me.
At least I didn’t have toilet paper stuck to my shoe or lipstick on my teeth.
I don’t think.
Anyway, it was so wonderful and so worth the trip!
Jenny and I had a great time gabbing and eating pizza (no fried fish!) on the way there.
Then I got to meet Marie who I didn’t know at all and she was so welcoming, kind, and wonderful. Her daughter is the sweetest little thing ever.
Oh my goodness. So many wonderful, talented, beautiful Catholic women.
Marie Miller played wonderful music for us. I wanted to buy her CD, but it was sold out! I’ve been told you can get her music on iTunes, and I’ll tell you all to check her out.
Hallie was cute, stylish, and very welcoming. She signed my book, gave me chocolate and a big hug. I wish I could have chatted with her longer!
Then she introduced to me to Jen. Jen is tall. She’s a tall, beautiful woman. When she met me she said, “Oh yeah. I know who you are. I read your blog.” I nearly fainted. Seriously, I need to get a grip.
I also met Kate and she was really pretty, and even more kind. She also signed my book. She gave an excellent talk during the conference. I cannot believe I just discovered her blog a few weeks ago. I feel like I’ve known her forever!
There was a beautiful Mass, a delicious lunch, and a chocolate break.
These are my kind of people.
I’m ready for Behold 2013!
