Well, we made it safe and sound to Los Angeles and it is sunny and 72 degrees this morning. We have a few more minutes until we have to be downstairs for our first workshop (we're here to WORK, remember?) so I thought I would catch you up on our trip so far.
We left Nashville with no trouble. Not even one of us had to do extra security checks, no one made a scene over lip gloss or sewing scissors, and our gate was the first one in the concouse. It was very easy. Then, as we were boarding the plane, Mom spotted EmmyLou Harris about to get on the flight ahead of us. We were excited, and Steph told us how she and her son Fletcher had just been listening to her music the night before. We boarded the plane, and to our surprise she sat down in the aisle seat of our row. So I sat by the window, Mom sat in the middle, EmmyLou sat on the aisle, and Steph sat on the opposite aisle.
EmmyLou obviously wasn't interested in talking, as she put her ipod headphones on and got out a book (The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell, which I have read and is a great book!) so we didn't bother her. I snuck that paparazzi-style shot with my point & shoot camera just for kicks.
Anyway, we had a non-stop four hour flight, which got a little long, but we made it safe and sound. We dropped in at the OSP Forum party and said hello, but then got some dinner because we were starving. We crashed as soon as we got to our room.
Check back in for more updates this afternoon and evening. After a full day of classes, we'll be going out to Hollywood tonight, so I am sure we'll have some more to report.
