New York, New York if I can make it there! I will make it anywhere! I did make it there; I drove from Metro Atlanta by way of Fort Wayne, Indiana, to pick up my cousin. We drove to New York to make this retreat! I am so happy that I will see some familiar faces and meet some new ones. I have to say this about my drive up; some person almost ran me off the road. The driver had been swerving for a while. When I saw my opportunity to pass him, I took my shot. It didn’t work out well, I had calculated the distance, but somehow that fraction of a second almost took me out. People, if you are tired, pull over to a rest stop and rest, please.
I digress back to the fun. The author treated us right as far as the entertainment, that first night, Wowza! It was great to see author Tiffany Patterson again! In between, events and reading books. There was some karaoke, which I have promised myself never to do another Taylor Swift song again. The welcome bags were awesome. A Mary Kay pamper party by Tiomoya Owens to bring out our queenly glow.
I really had a good time, and my cousin did too. She was happily surprised by the gifts in her swag bag. I cannot wait to see what Blue Saffire has in store for us at the next retreat in 2020.
