Each of these authors/producers took a few minutes to talk with me while they autographed my nerd collection. While it is great any time an author does a signing, it is especially fun to talk to someone you admire about someone else you both adore.
|Barbara Walker is the author of The Little House Cookbook. She is basically|
my hero. She was reading in the kitchen before I was alive, let alone before
I could lift a spatula. While signing my copy of the book, she offered me a few
cooking tips. She proved to be a funny lady, too, when she made me crack up
as my mom took the photo. When I grow up, I hope I am half as cute and
spunky as she proved to be.
Looking at all these photos, I'm not sure how I feel about my outfit. I was going for cute writer chic, but I kind of missed the mark. Instead I look a bit like a bit like a lumpy burlap sack in my denim dress. Oh well. One of these days I'll get the artsy creative-type look down.
Special thanks to my mom for following me around with an iPhone. She's a Droid lady, and I'm afraid I became a little impatient with her at times.
