I gasped when I opened the email. Out loud. In a meeting. A smile formed on my face.
There was an invitation to attend a workshop with one of the most amazing teacher-writing-mommas out there. She just shared her new book with the world and I was a little tiny part of her journey.
I quickly closed the email in disbelief.
You see, she is the one who got me started writing slices of life on this little blog almost eight years ago.
She's also kind of big deal. And there she was in my email saying she's coming to a town near me.
Then I opened the email again to read beyond her name and smiling face. I checked my calendar and emailed a couple colleagues.
"Aaaaaaaaagggggghhhhhh! I gasped when I opened this! Can we go?????"
Thinking about how I'm going to make this work ... there has to be a way. I emailed her out of sheer shock and excitement.
Do you know I literally gasped when I opened this email an hour ago?!? I'm going to do everything in my power to be there!! Fingers crossed our paths will cross in real life!!!
This weekend, I signed up. There was no way I was going to miss this opportunity. We have yet to meet in real life.
And I cannot wait to hear the power of her stories. With my own ears. In real life. You could say, I'm a bit elated at this opportunity.
If you are also near my little corner of the world, please join us! It's going to be an amazing day!
