A Girl's Gotta Watch Her Figure(s)
Putting out our own hardback children's book has been a learning experience, start to finish. Or at least start to midway point. Our work is not done until we've recouped some costs! But what a great evening. There were gifts for granddaughters (and a couple grandsons!), goddaughters,plain-old daughters, teachers, aunts, cousins, neighbors. Margo's house was storybook beautiful, as usual, with all the candles and Christmas trees (yes--plural), and did I mention the woman can bake? I enjoyed a chocolate-peppermint cupcake, but I know I saw Red Velvet and Pumpkin and Salted Caramel, among other flavors.
What a thrill it was to gather around the Christmas tree and celebrate together. I can't tell you how gratifying it is to have readers who laugh in all the right places. Your friendship is the best gift of all. XOXO.
If you missed out, catch the traveling roadshow this Sunday at Pinkabella Cupcakes in Redmond Town Center, 2-3 p.m. Kids welcome! Or Tuesday afternoon, 12/7, in Bellevue Square. And stay tuned for a University Book Store event in 2011...
