Cathryn Parry gave us such a wonderful recap of RWA14 in San Antonio, Texas on Monday that I thought I'd add some of my own photos (hey, I'm not above using the good ideas of others!).
Here's Super authors Jennifer Lohmann and Jeannie Watt with me at the Harlequin Party:
I haven't attended each and every RWA since 2000 due to our previous military life, with all the moves in the summer. But since being back (and retired from military life) Stateside permanently, I've made the last three in a row: Anaheim, CA, Atlanta, GA and San Antonio, TX. I have to say the weather in CA was most agreeable. GA was great for me because I was able to see relatives I usually don't (they moved from Western New York when I was a girl to escape the cold winters). TX was the absolute best for food (Mexican--the REAL kind!) and "other things to do." I finally got to see the inside of the Alamo after several trips to San Antonio for my Navy life. It was like all sacred places are, where people gave their lives for a cause. Quiet, hushed, somber and sad. A reminder of what really matters.
The absolute most fun was dining and exploring the Riverwalk. A great way to take a break from the constant noise that is inherent in a large conference, and cozy places to enjoy great food with fantastic people.
