OT I am so excited!

I just made plans to go to Denver, CO. On June 27th the COVR Awards Banquet is happening there. Guess what? My book An Ordinary Girl, A Magical Child is a finalist!!!!!

Finalists and winner will be announced on stage during the banquet. I am so excited I can barely breath.

I need to get some painting done, but life has been a bit of a turmoil at the moment as I scrambled to make arrangements to head out to Denver. I was just notified on Friday of the honor!

Anyone know of good touristy spots in Denver I should see before I come back home?

Congrats Lyon! So exciting for you, and you get a fun trip, too!

I have to second the request for touristy spots. I'll be in Denver the 19th-21st visiting my husband(he's there for work.)I've already noted the Denver Art Museum, the Molly Brown House, Red Rocks..etc.

Go see Red Rocks/Dinosaur Ridge, Denver Natural History Museum, the Tattered Cover Bookstore in Cherry Creek (an AWESOME bookstore), LoDo (for restaurants/bars), Pearl Street in Boulder, I could go on and on (my husbands from Denver, and we go back all the time)

Congrats! I second the touristy things already mentioned. If you are into Theatre the Denver Center Theatre Co. productions are good. There is a cool railroad museum if you like trains. And if you are into kitchy entertainment make sure you eat at Casa Bonita. The food isn't all that great but the cliff divers are amazing.
