It’s celebration Saturday and with a busy, busy weekend, I thought no, don’t have time. But when you get used to celebrating, those shiny pieces of emotion don’t like to be ignored. So late in the afternoon, I am stopping, to do what has become routine and habit. Yet is so much more.
Quickly, my celebrations: three things told through twitter.
This month, my husband and I will travel to Bellingham for the AMAZING Western Washington Children’s Literature Conference. To make it more amazing, I get to visit with these people. And . . . meet Elisabeth Ellington in real life for the first time!

@CarrieGelson Thank you, Carrie. I mean it when I say that’s better than any Caldecott!

This week I celebrate all of these things and . . . the pull to celebrate. Celebration is a wonderful choice – one that I’m glad I just can’t miss!
