Where to begin? Where to begin? Well, maybe I'll just begin with this . . .

It's hard to believe that Peepy and I are back from our American Girl 25th Birthday Cruise to the Caribbean!

A few months ago I got a phone call inviting me to participate in the birthday celebration. Oh, and it's on a cruise ship, I was told. It took me all of .001 seconds to say, "YES!"

First we flew to Miami and then boarded the Celebrity Eclipse . . .

The ship was huge and utterly gorgeous . . .

I especially loved the American Girl Lounge where girls could drop by anytime to do crafts . . .

And look! There was a library on board . . .

I was allowed to bring a guest, so since there were so many mothers and daughters onboard, it was only fitting that I bring Teen. Here she is with me and American Girl authors Mary Casanova and Valerie Tripp . . .

In honor of Kanani, the 2011 Girl of the Year, there was a spectacular luau . . .

(I'm not sure why the photos of the fruit are so big.)

As part of the celebration, I talked about Kanani and her story, and the hardships I had to undergo for my craft. Here's a time lapse of my event . . .

The audience was so enthusiastic, I felt like a rock star!!!

Every girl got a copy of ALOHA, KANANI (and their dolls got grass skirts and other goodies). It was fun signing the books and meeting my fellow travelers . . .

Every night before bed the girls got a special gift. Here's Peepy with one of the presents . . .

BTW, here's what happened in my home town this week. Yes, I returned just in time for the hurricane-like winds and destruction.
