Can you stand another post about the wonderfulness that was BEA and the first annual Book Blogger Convention held on Friday? I went to New York just for the day on Friday, an incredible experience that you can read about (and see photos from) via my Book Blogger Convention Recap: Early Morning (Chapter 1).
Today we're planning a visit to nearby Longwood Gardens to see a special exhibit called Lilytopia. For those not in the Philadelphia area, Longwood Gardens is a spectacular place - public gardens, a conservatory (pictured here during their OrKid event in January's dead of winter), children's gardens, and much more. I wouldn't have known about Lilytopia if it wasn't for Longwood Gardens' Facebook page, and the gorgeous photos that they've been posting there have sealed the deal for my decision to go to this. (The power of social media!) We're lucky enough that we live close enough to Longwood to visit even just for an afternoon, which is about the length of stamina that we tend to have.

That'll have to wait a little bit, though. For the rest of today, there's a little girl who is waiting to see the lilies.
