My beautiful friend Gail O’Neill at Arts Atl asked me what my biggest lesson of 2020 was and after wrestling with the question for weeks: duh. Cheers to superhuman Stacy Abrams this year and every year.

Such a pleasure to chat with her.
Her questions were so thoughtful and as I got emotional answering some of them, she held me up with such grace. What a pro. Thank you, Lois!

Savannah Book Festival + Book Club Girl’s Afternoon Out in Mission Viejo
It's been a whirlwind of a week. The Savannah Book Festival was a true joy – star treatment, girlfriends in tow and the wonderful Jonathan Rabb. Then onto gorgeous Orange County where I got to meet terrific fellow authors and kind readers. Then, Disney with the fam.
Do I feel like I've been run over by a mac truck? Yes. Was it worth it? Also yes.
Thank You Books, Thank You Haddasah of Birmingham, Thank You Thank You Thank You
There are so many reasons why yesterday's reading at Thank You Books was special:
1. 4 members of our "heart family" as Ari has coined it drove and explored the city with us: Sarah Baldauf and Chris Fickes #keepinitbubbly
2. Got to hang with Barcley Roedder Gerndt, Caroline Springfield and Daphne Dunn Williams – friends for years and years who I wish I saw more.
2. Haddasah of Birmingham with Mindy Cohen and Jennifer Cordover sponsored the event and my fellow Jewess love was electric.
3. Kristen Iskandrian, co-owner of the store and beautiful author of Motherest was first introduced to me by 2 of my favorite people of all time Damian Fallon and Kathryn Belgiorno making it a circle of life moment that felt pretty damn good.
Thank you to everyone who came out!
