Frankie's DC Adventure

Hey Guys!

I'm back from another mini-road trip adventure. This time to DC to attend Jessica Spotswood's Born Wicked Launch Party. And I had a blast!

First I met up with Jeri Smith-Ready in Maryland where she whisked me away to one of my favorite vegan restaurants, Great Sage!
The food is so good, it kind of makes me wish I lived in Maryland...
After stuffing ourselves we then headed to the launch party where I got to meet a ton of the super cool writers in the DC area, and of course, see Jessica and get our copies of Born Wicked signed! I also got to try the signature Born Wicked cocktail which was blue and super yummy and welcome after walking through some seriously frigid wind to the venue.

Jessica signing books.
Jeri and Jessica! Two of the sweetest writers on the planet!
Here I am with Jessica.
I got to hang out with Cristin Terrill!
And the super sweet Sarah Enni!
Hanging with Jeri!
I finally got to meet the super fabulous Sara McClung!
I didn't get pictures with everyone but I also had super fun conversations with Caroline T. Richmond, Lynn Colt,  Jessica BS (who also gave me the sad news about Whitney Houston via twitter), and more!

DC Writers--I think you're all super cool and I hope I get to hang out with all of you again soon. 

After grabbing some coffee, Jeri and I headed out, and I was preparing to make the drive back to Philly when this happened:

Dangerous Snow Squalls!
The combo of the severe light snow and my mom's worried text messages about driving, convinced me to spend the night in Maryland, thus extending my adventure by a super fun extra night. Jeri and I have a history of being trapped by snow in February anyway.

But now it's back to the real world and I need to get some serious writing done.

How was everyone else's weekend?
