Well, I am finally on my way! After a month filled with preparing catering orders, marketing materials, budget, travel accommodations, shipping, group events, and appointment books, I am Vegas-bound for Licensing Show Expo, our biggest annual trade show event . . .
After a few too many late nights and working weekends, I am following up my business trip with some much needed R&R in So-Cal. I am delighted to spoil the nieces and nephews and to take in some sun!

After a long week of late nights, several checks and re-checks of our "to do list", and a teary-eyed moment laced with a stream of profanities this evening, I finally managed to walk away from my office at 8pm tonight completely confident that we're fully prepared for Licensing Show. I boarded the 4 train and began my commute home, completely exhausted.
But, in the short fifteen minute ride tonight, my frown was turned upside down when a magician boarded my car and began performing his best tricks. Between 42nd and 86th Streets, the talented fellow managed to make a scarf dance and tie itself into a knot, change a handkerchief into a live dove, and to make a chain disappear from his very hands!
I was so enjoyably entertained, I was slightly sad to be forced to exit the train at my stop. I never make a habit of donating to street performers in the subway, but I was so impressed at his ability to magically change my attitude that I made sure to drop a dollar into his tin as I walked onto the platform!
