Celebrate This Week!

  Join us each weekend for Celebrate this week with Ruth Ayres.  
 When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build.
  A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!

1.  No rental car for me
I text from the airport in Seattle, discover that Linda is already at the airport in Denver, that Ruth is baking pies, and that Mary Helen is in summer school.  
After a few texts and checking in again in Chicago, Tim (Mary Helen's son) steps forward to be my "return to South Bend" chauffeur in shorts.
Linda and I share a delightful, scenic drive to Warsaw
via county roads and byways
(that's our story and I'm sticking to it).

2.  Gazebo time at Wyndham Gardens in Warsaw
After the banquet with Seymour Simon (where some of us
share a table with Georgia Heard), we retire to the gazebo.  
Stories, shared sessions from All Write, 
vomit stories (inspired by Christy's session earlier in the day),
lots of laughter and more stories are the order of the hour.
The sky treats us to this spectacular sunset!

3.  Cancelled Chicago to Seattle flight
Rescheduled flights grant me an extra hour of sleep.
I am rerouted through Minneapolis.  They have a mall in their airport!
I don't stop since I've already blown my budget on books at All Write.
I arrive home earlier than my original flight!

4. Hydrangeas are starting to bloom

5. Instagrams from Sara and Will in Glacier National Park
They promise a return trip with us before the glaciers melt. 
They can stake out the gentle hikes for when we join them!

  1. All Write looks wonderful! I love the moments you celebrated there and as you traveled home. I sure wish we could grow hydrangeas in Florida! They are such beautiful blooms.
