I don't usually post twice in one day, but I just got some GREAT news. I'm a finalist in the Killer Nashville 2011 Claymore Award Contest. The conference is in late August and I've been waiting to see when we'll relocate to Mississippi before I register for the conference. I didn't plan to go if we didn't move. After all, it's about 8+ hours away and I've given up flying. But now ... now... I think being a finalist puts a different slant on travel, doesn't it? The other finalists are listed below. I have no doubt I'm in good company. Don't their titles sound wonderful?
A finalist! ME! Killer Nashville! Pinch me!
