A few days ago I headed up to Vail, Colorado for a book event at The Bookworm in Edwards. It was the first event I did by myself, where I had to speak in front of people and answer questions. I'm not going to lie--I was nervous. I was scared no one would show up and I'd be standing in front of a bunch of empty chairs like an idiot. I was scared I was going to barf on the floor in front of a bunch of strangers. I was scared someone would ask me a question I wouldn't know how to answer--or worse yet, answer it and sound like a complete moron.
None of those things happened--although I may have sounded like a moron and am blissfully unaware. But people showed up--ACTUAL STRANGERS! And it was good. Really good. But I didn't get any pictures of the actual event because I was so caught up in the moment--and besides, would pictures have done it any justice? NOPE. But here are a few pics:
We used to live in Vail Valley about 8 years ago, and our little day trip made me miss it up in the mountains. But it's weird visiting a place you lived, because time doesn't stand still, it keeps on going, and things change. But it was good, so good. Hopefully we'll get up there more often.
