I had to dedicate this post to my awesome friends – Toni, Beth, Kathi, and RJ.  Well, last night, I had my first unofficial book signing, thanks to them.  I was supposed to meet two of them at a Portuguese restaurant, or so I thought, but when I got there, they had a surprise get together for me – great food, great conversation, goodies, and yes, books to be signed.  It was a night full of yes – you guessed it – AWESOMENESS!  My only regret is that I was so enjoying their company that I totally forgot to take pictures with my phone, 😦 so these after the event will have to do.

They presented me with the framed covers of Moonlit Valley.  Is that awesome or what?

Guys, I had a great time, wait no, the word is Super-Awesome time – I love you.

On a totally unrelated topic, but certainly full of awesomeness, yesterday I spotted an Eagle perched on one of the trees in front of my house.  I have never seen one in this area, so it was a treat. I hope that I get to see it again.

It was eating a bird, yummy! Wait no, what are you screaming Mr. Eagle? OH, I see, I must correct myself, then – Mr. Eagle says that the bird he is eating is full of AWESOMENESS!
