I know I talk about Waco like it's a romantic Neverland, but that's because it is a romantic Neverland. If you lived in that city and snagged the same friends and experiences I snagged, you'd feel the same way. I knew it would always be near and dear to my heart, but it was only after moving away that I really got it.
Before the signing on Wednesday, I had a little TV interview with Emily at KWTX. It's about 8 minutes long and you can see it here. After that, it was time to party at my favorite spot in town—the pub. About 60 people showed up (mostly old friends, but I was happy to make some new ones). Many books were signed and pints were ordered. Cookie cake was shoveled into bellies and bear hugs were given in high doses.
Thanks again for everyone who came out to support my book baby. You were some of the earliest encouragers of my endeavors (even back to my Etsy shop days) and now you're here, asking me to sign your grandma's books. Thank you all so much. I had a blast and I can't wait to do this all over again.
