Hard to believe summer is winding down.  The neighborhood kids are getting ready for school, the days are getting shorter and I’m already gearing up to tailgate at a few fall football games.  Most of my summer was spent at the computer but I did manage to get away a few times.  Thought I’d share some pics of my summer adventures.

Summer kicked off at Lori Foster's Readers and Author Get Together. Had a great time!

RWA in NYC was my next stop! Always great to see old pals and visit the big city.

4th of July was all about cooking out and firecrackers by the lake. These are the days I dream about in January.

Summer also means my birthday! Here I am with my friends from the YMCA!

Took a couple of Vegan cooking classes. My favorite dish of all was guacamole.

Managed to grab a few days at Nags Head beach in North Carolina. Love the beach!

Even got a henna tatoo.
