Don't leave me summer. Please.

I'm still recovering after the World Cup final. What an amazing adventure Brazil was!

It gave us James Rodriguez and his dance moves.


And his goals:


Mascherano and his Braveheart like talk to Chiquito Romero


His hug with Messi when we qualified for the final

Messi's happy tears 




And his tears of sadness even when he was chosen the best player of the world cup

David Luiz heartbreak 


And the tragedy of that terrible game against those who must not be named

Brazil was beautiful and all the emotions gave me plenty of food for many, many books. 

I went to SCBWI, I'm working for revisions that an agent requested (!!!), and I applied for the Vermont College Children's Writing Program. My garden is exploding with plants if not vegetables. Summer is almost over but it's been beautiful and I'll never forget it. Like I'll never forget this team:



Or the fact that my husband went to the World Cup with his friends and not me. Nope. Not forgetting any time soon ;-)
