I love serendipitous symmetry, and one of my upcoming trip has it in spades–almost 10 years to the day I’ll be returning to Puerto Vallarta. Next month, we’re spending four nights at the Hyatt Ziva All-Inclusive to celebrate my 30th birthday.

Whew! What a whirlwind weekend in LA! This is the second year I attended Dragcon, and it was event better than last year…
