Planes, Planes, Planes, and Minivans

I’m digressing from my usual reading update and reporting in on my journey to the ACFW Conference in Indianapolis. I grew up in Indiana, so the conference offers a good excuse to visit family. I got a great airfare that allowed me to depart from our small town airport. I love the flight on a 19-passenger Beechcraft to Phoenix. My original flight was cancelled a couple of weeks ago, so I ended up with a 9-hour layover.
Sky Harbor Airport has these cool seats with plugs and free WiFi. With a never ending to-do list, time flew by. I took the red-eye to Philadelphia then in to Indianapolis and had my sister pick me up. Quality time with my BFF! We live cross-country from each other, so we only see each other a couple of times a year. We got into town in time for a ministry fair at church where I got to catch up with family friends. I got together with several of my high school friends for dinner.

Over the next few days, I’ll get to see  my niece’s volleyball game, get my haircut by another friend, ride bikes with my parents, and visit my 89-year-old grandfather. At the conference, I’ll have the opportunity not only to pitch my story but to attend classes to improve my craft and meet in person my writing friends. I’m really looking forward to the entire experience.
