This is the part of my summer, heck, my year, that I had been looking forward to. Authors After Dark. AAD was one of the best author/reader conferences out there. Unfortunately 2016 was its final year. Still I love this conference. Getting to hang out with other authors and readers isn't something I get to do a lot. And doing over great food and fun is even better!
We had plans to attend a conference in early August in Savannah and my daughter figured we were only going to be 4 hours from Orlando so why not go Universal Studios for a few days in July. Seriously she just wanted to go to The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter. Our trip coincided with the new Harry Potter book release. So we went to the midnight release at the Barnes and Noble in Orlando. I need to find the rest of my pictures but here's some of them.
We spent 3 days bouncing between the two parks and lounging at the hotel. My daughter bought one of those interactive wands to use int he Harry Potter parts of the parks. We stayed at Universal Cabana Bay Beach Resort. The hotel has a lazy river and pools. It also has a bowling alley, which we enjoyed. It was a a great vacation.
Fall has officially arrived, so I sat down and did a review. This post is going to be done in four parts, becuase this summer was really busy and I may have taken a lot of pictures. I'm going to start with what happened in June.
My birthday was on the 26th and my daughter surprised me with trip to Boston. Since we live about 45 minutes away and there is so much to do there. Plays and shows, museums, the aquarium I truly had no idea where we were going. She told me to dress casual, but nice and nothing else. We parked the car in an underground garage and came out to a part of Boston that In wasn't really familiar with. We crossed the street and stopped in front a building and I saw the sign.The Langham! Oh my god I knew what was in that hotel. CAFE FLEURI !!! She made reservations for the Chocolate Bar. We spent 2 hours tasting so many delicious chocolate deserts and treats.
I have to say it was absolutely AMAZING! We had a great day. I will remember it forever. My daughter rocks!
I'm a contemporary romance and romantic comedy author. My stories vary in heat levels from sweet to sizzling, but hopefully they all have a hint of humor. If you enjoy family and friend based series then you've found the right author.
