We made it - that is one heck of a flight. We've been having a fantastic time - as you can see from the photo I took on the Sydney ferry, on our way to Sydney.
My new niece, Scarlett, is precious and perfect. Sister, Christina is doing very well too.
**I wrote a bit on the plane and am on page 124 for my new WIP - my sister Nikole printed out the first 120 pages and read it on her LA to Sydney leg...and loved it. She can be a tough critic and she had nothing but good praise. That makes me really excited to keep writing. I can't wait to finish it and see how it all ends.
