Heading off to DotMom

A day of airplanes (including all-out running between two of them) and an evening of chatting with friends (old and new) has me all worn out. I was especially delighted to see Keely, Jennifer, and Mel, all folks I met on our Compassion trip to the Dominican Republic a few years back.

I’m eager to see what the Lifeway DotMom conference has in store tomorrow. I’ll be blogging highlights of talks by Jen Hatmaker and many other fine folks! Jen and I actually spent 3 minutes talking this evening and I’m pretty sure we’re now BFF. OK, I’m exaggerating, but I’m pretty sure she and I could effortlessly fill an hour with talk about adoption and Ethiopia and solving the world’s problems.  You know, if she didn’t have about 40 other people wanting to chat with her at any given moment.

For now, here’s a view of my hotel. Looks like the outside of the building, right? It’s actually the inside, looking down into a big open area.  I’m up on the 8th floor, close to the right-hand side of the picture.  More tomorrow!  Goodnight!


  1. Yay! Have fun! That hotel is like a wide version of a hotel we stayed at in chile! Very cool looking! Love you!

  2. The word “cavernous” popped into my head as soon as I saw that picture. wow. The urge to stand on one side and see if you could holler enough for someone on the other side to hear you would be so strong, yet so inappropriate! Hope you have a good time.

  3. Glass elevators? Remember staying at a place like this once and parents/family would yell down at the others in the pool area. It was quite comical.
