Next week, I’ll resume blogging-as-usual with interviews with Suzi Love & Sarah Tormey coming up (yea!).

To ease back into the schedule, however, I’d like to share some pictures of this year’s Beau Monde Conference. The conference was particularly fun for me, as it was my first Beau Monde conference without any responsibilities whatsoever. I attended fabulous classes (given by Janet Mullany, Deliliah Marville and Isobel Carr), listened with rapt fan-girl attention to Mary Jo Putney’s Keynote speech & country-danced the night away at the evening Soiree.

  • You did country-dancing! I’m envious!

  • There’s no reason to be envious! However, I am pretty proud of myself.
    You see, at my first Beau Monde Soiree a rigid dancemaster my friend and
    I to sit out the rest of the night “to allow others to enjoy the dance”
    (i.e. he kicked us off because we were so poor at following his
    directions!) So, just making it through a few dances without falling
    over was a real thrill. 🙂
