Back to the Real World

If you follow me on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, or Instagram than you got to watch Magdalyn Ann and I go across the country over the last two weeks when we took the train to Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, back to Chicago, down to New Orleans, and home to Philadelphia.

Well it’s all over now. So sad. But we had an amazing time and ate a lot of amazing. Food wise, my favorite city was New Orleans. Even though I couldn’t eat all the sea food dishes (otherwise I’d die), I still got to eat beignets and the most amazingly flavorful filet mignons. Seattle was probably my favorite visit overall, certainly my most caffeinated. I wish we’d had more time there to see and do more. San Francisco was my favorite view. I took a few nature walks with my Aunt Jean while I was out there and the flora was simply gorgeous.

Chicago was BookCon. Definitely a great aquarium out there. The architecture inside was amazing. I love when they add fishies to the molding.

But I’ve been home since Sunday now and it’s time to get back to looking for a job. Which I have been doing. I search every day for entry level positions in children’s publishing.

I didn’t always love reading and I want to be a part of the process that creates a book that draws a child into reading.

Whether I write the book, design the cover, or come up with a totally cool marketing plan-I don’t care. I just want to do it all.
