Happy Birthday, Emily!

My darling daughter is 14 today and spent the day with me at the Romance Writer's conference in Washington, D.C. Look what happened tonight:

Emily met Nora Roberts!!!!!!! And congratulated her on her RITA win! Nora was so lovely when she heard it was Emily's birthday! What a thrill for all of us. Congratulations, Nora! And happy, happy birthday to my "little" girl!

More photos coming when I get home!

It was a wonderful moment. Truly surreal. And Emily conducted herself with grace and aplomb. Unlike another Force I could name who barely managed to hold the camera steady... but that is another story! :)

Emily sure is a loving young lady. Happy Birthday. What a nice way to spend her birthday. So many cool pictures from the Convention. Looks like you all at a good time.
I hope to be here tonight for the discussion.
