Where in the world is Deb Salonen?

Remember last Friday when I said I was going to South Dakota for a taste of Autumn?

Got it. And brrr…it’s colder than I remember. ;-)

We arrived in Sioux Falls on a warm, beautiful night of a full moon.

The next morning, we stopped in my old hometown of Brookings for a trip down memory lane. The place has really changed. Even my beloved Carnegie library where I spent every Saturday morning as a child has evolved into a home for art.

So far, I’ve seen the water as smooth as glass, pink sunsets, puffy white clouds, fog and mist that obscured the other side of the lake and whitecaps that remind me of the Central Coast of California. (Just hoping it doesn’t snow before I leave.)

Happy Friday, my friends, wherever you are. If you haven’t signed up for my NEWSLETTER, I have more pics PLUS a new giveaway coming out on Sunday.

Signing off from South Dakota,

Deb

PS: I’ve gotten tons of writing done, too. CALEB’S CHRISTMAS WISH is uploaded and ready to go when I get back home!
