Words & Wine and a wonderful day

Today was the perfect fall day to catch up with old friends and make new ones at Words & Wine, a fundraiser for WriterHouse, a non-profit writing center in Charlottesville, VA.

Some of my favorite peeps showed up

Writers and non-writers mingled under the trees at Keswick Vineyard while tasting wine, eating, and chatting about books, vino, and the gorgeous weather.  I had a blast, and I think everyone else there did too.

Think they're talking words or wine?

Lots of folks worked hard on the event, begging for prizes, working the registration table, and talking friends into coming out (uh, to the party, that is).  A big thank you to all our volunteers and to the generous sponsors who so kindly forked over some great stuff to make our raffle a huge success.

Oh, yeah, and Jenny, you won a prize.  But I’m not gonna tell you about it except right here.  So if you’re reading, it’s all yours.  If not, bummer, I guess I get the lunch cruise on the Calypso, fencing lessons, etc.
