My Conference Cup Overfloweth

It’s going to be too warm to wear this jacket many more times so I’ve got to cram in as many good times wearing it as I can before we march into June. It’s such an awesome jacket that I am going to be really sad when it’s time to put it away for the summer.

In totally unrelated news, I was invited to speak at a conference in London this fall on my much earlier work on Queen Anna of Denmark, the Scottish court in the 1590s, and the early Jacobean court. Before I made the transition to my current research interests, I was all about queens consort, all the time (wow, that's the geekiest thing I've ever written).

I am bummed though because, as amazing of an opportunity as it sounds, this conference is happening a few weeks after we return from Scotland, a few days after I leave for another conference in Banff, and a week before I leave for Arkansas to speak at another conference. So I think I have to turn it!

I do love that jacket, the leather sleeves make it.

Bummer you will have to turn down the London conference. Too bad it could not have come at a more convenient time when you could have enjoyed it and made a trip out of it.

This jacket is the business; I love it!
Speaking at a conference in London?! What a cool offer- it's a shame it falls right in the middle of your other commitment. But congrats regardless. You're a lady in high demand! :)

That is definitely an awesome jacket! And do I see some color under there ;)
That's such a shame about the conference, sounds so cool too! You and your fun history

What a shame you had to turn down that conference, but how lucky you are to have so many speaking opportunities that you're in a position to turn some of them down! And that jacket, seriously - LOVE.

Awww that's too bad you have to turn it down : ( But sounds like you have other amazing things coming up to soften the blow. Love that jacket, and the leather sleeves : )

You definitely are getting a lot of travel opportunities. I have always wanted to go to London and would definitely hate to turn that down, but with everything else already on your plate it is completely understandable.
