Tomorrow, Sept. 28th, is my birthday! I hope to spend Sunday evening drinking wine around a fire and ruminating on life, what being one-year-from-3o means (everything? nothing), but for now let me tell you about some WONDERFUL THINGS going on, starting now:
Friday, September 28th (2 shows) – 7:30pm and 10:30pm, Steelstacks in Bethlehem, PA

North East Pennsylvania Blog Conference is a new event, and an all-day nonstop blog explosion featuring workshops and panels from folks all over the East Coast (um, hello, Gala Darling will be part of it!).

If that’s not enough goodness for you, proceeds go to charity!
