Today is a Big Day

Today is a big day.
Here's a look at a few things that will happen in my life today.

1.) I will go to fed ex and send off a large box that's filled with some of the most gorgeous crochet projects I've ever seen from the amazingly talented contributors to the book I'm writing for Chronicle Books. In that box is also my manuscript. Friends, it seems that I've written a book. It is scheduled to come out in Spring of 2012 and you can expect to hear more about it as we get closer!

2.) I will pick up a refund check from a wedding vendor who mislead us, and so many others, when we signed a contract, and with whom I have been battling since early fall to get our money back. I am positively elated to have him out of our lives after this morning.

3.) I will help finish another issue of ReadyMade and send it off to the printer.

4.) I will receive my wedding dress, in one piece, along with my sister's bridesmaid dress.

I feel as though any of those on their own would make for an eventful day, but having them all together is making me incredibly grateful that it's Friday, and that I have little else to do tomorrow than to pack for a trip to LA/Palm Springs to attend the TEDActive conference next week. Getting to go and enjoy some warmth and a sure-to-be-amazing experience seems like a pretty fantastic reward for finishing such a large amount of work.

I am quite sure that I have more thoughts on all of these topics, but instead of rambling on incoherently, I will simply leave you with the lovely image from the Wheatfield and plan to tell you all about the dress on Monday!


  1. Oh I can't wait to hear about the dresses! Congratulations on your upcoming book, Amy!

  7. Thanks so much everyone! The book is scheduled to be published in the spring of 2012- and I'll keep you posted on the dress which didn't arrive on Friday as planned. So much anticipation!

  8. Wow! Those are some accomplishments. Congrats and hope you're having an excellent time in Palm Springs!
