the summer of denise

I just got back from LA for the Breaking Dawn concert, and to all those Twilight fans out there, it was so much fun! Geeky fun, but fun! Justin Furstenfeld (from Blue October) sang the acoustic versions of the songs Stephenie selected. She would first tell the audience what part of the book she had in mind and then he would play. So cool.

Then she had a Q&A and she had a lot of interesting things to say about the 4th book. Which by the way, I LOVED Breaking Dawn and, in fact, teared up at the end. Sigh. I shall miss dear Edward and dear Jacob. (I'm one of those who still thinks she should have both...) Oh, and lastly she had a book signing.

Anyway, I stayed in a really cool, modern hotel and hung out at the pool most of the time. (I had to include a photo below. It was on the roof of the hotel in downtown LA. Very hip place to hang out at night!) I did take a drive to Santa Monica too just 'cause I love the ocean so much.

Lastly, did I happen to mention I was alone, again? It was fabulous! This summer will always be known to me as "the summer of Denise" and I'm sad to see it go. Indeed, I have no more alone trips planned and Jason asked that I stay home once-in-a-while. I suppose that's the clue I've been gone too much!

It has been a wild and crazy summer but I have loved every minute of it. And so, a moment of silence for the passing of The Summer of Denise....

I am so jealous! You got to go to that! Robbie doesn't understand why it would have been nice to spend out small student loan money on going to Seattle for that concert, but oh well. That is so cool that you were able to go!

Sounds great -- lotsa fun. I predict a fall and winter of Denise.

THEY called today...I told THEM awful things about you.

Hello,

My name is William Hadley(under my wife's account, who randomly stumbled onto your blog). Have you done any family history on the Hadley name? My son is very similar to your oldest daughter in his educational abilities. He is 3and half now. We also have a 13 month old little girl. How old are your kids? We live in Atlanta, Georgia. I am originally from the Los Angeles area.
