An update.

I had to take my shoes off and run barefoot in the rain to be sure not to miss the train. [Classy.]

I’m surrounded by awesome people.

I still haven’t eaten a Magnolia Bakery cupcake, but that is in my future. Don’t you worry about that.

I’m talking about music on Twitter because that’s the only part of this experience that I’m allowed to share publicly. [Sorry bout it.]

I’m more proud to be here than you can imagine.

Also, I’m sorry I ran barefoot. I know that doesn’t represent me as a Southern lady. But missing the train wasn’t an option. So. It was a calculated risk. Forgive me, Mama.

    I hope someday we’ll hear all about it. One can dream. . .

    Enjoy NYC! I love it there.

    Why can’t you talk about it? That doesn’t make sense if you think about it, really.
    (You interview for, and “win” a spot in a week long seminar but can’t tell anyone about it? Explain that logic. :))

    Nonetheless, hope you have a good time.

    As a Southern lady, you did what you had do to make that train. Hold your head high. 😉
