|Mother's Day project from my youngest|
Connections - my weekend was all about connections. Sunday was a great day connecting with the family and focusing on relationships within the family. Saturday I met with Michele and attended a meeting at our local writer's chapter and learned a bevy of information about book trailers (ours will be out later this year!!). Before the meeting (which is held at a community center) we connected with our inner-Diva's in a morning Zumba class, what fun!!! After the chapter meeting we connected at Ikea, brainstorming about our book & blog while we shopped. Finally, Saturday night my family was invited to a friend's house for a BBQ, another connection that I was happy about.

I hope you all had some great connections yourself this Mother's Day weekend.
I started my weekend off high from an amazing workshop I had attended most of the week for work. The workshop was offered to my co-workers and I to enhance our work skills; however, we got so much more- especially on a personal level. It was extremely interactive and explored our journeys and dreams. It also provided us the opportunity to really spend time with one another since we only really see each other a maximum of twice per month. Plus, we made connections with others in our field with whom we are looking forward to attending more events.
So on Saturday, as Elena mentioned, we learned about book trailers. The wonderful guest speaker repeated the fact that thinking in images was important, which can be difficult for authors. This was an interesting connection to me, that this presentation and my workshop dealt with thinking in images. Hmmm...coincidence? I'm going to enjoy working on our book trailer when the time comes!
After our meeting, we went to Ikea, which I love; it's like Disneyland to me. So we had to take pictures! (Who am I kidding? I take pictures in the produce section of the supermarket).

The weekend ended with my connecting with my inner child. While at the bf's family's home, I spent time with his nieces, enjoying the beautiful day and then playing with Legos, matchbox cars, and our imaginations.
Great ending to a fabulous weekend.
