I got by with a little help from my friends, I was high on a little help from my friends...


Kathleen (Katsoup) drove from Georgia to attend the booksigning- I was honored and proud to have her there....she is beautiful and her eyes sparkle and shine with warmth and friendship - Thank you KatSoup! It was so good to meet a blogger friend - we've known each other on blogger for about four? five years, is it? really? could it be? She was my mysterious stranger I predicted would come!





Mikell and I and friends in background; Mikell left a family vacation to come to the signing - WOW! That humbles and overwhelms me with gratitude.

My book signing event couldn't have gone better. Yup, just as you all tried to tell me, "Don't worry - what if it turns out better than you even imagined?" And that is exactly what happened. It was better and more well-attended than I could ever imagine. The night is one big happy excited wonderful blur. I took a photo of my hand after the signing - it was covered in ink! *laughing*


I posted some pictures on my facebook page....if you want to go look, go there (I think you can look at them? If not, let me know if you try and can't). I'm posting a few here so you can see. Plus I'm posting the two photos I received from y'all reading Tender Graces -- Sharla from "a little salty" and Marcy "Cooking Rut" whoohoooo!...thank y'all! You both look Wonderful!

I will tell more about the book signing - but the photos say so much. Look at that cake by Christy Bishop (Chef/owner of Sugar Buzz)--omg! And GMR made party food -yummmm.




cake -!!! Margaret Osondu and me
