Thank you so much to everyone who came out to Barnes & Noble in Chico last night for my first book signing with Robb Wolf!! I have to admit, I was so incredibly nervous. More nervous than when I spoke in front of 168 people at out local hospital, more nervous than when I spoke to a room full of Navy Seals who happen to be a fairly intimidating group of folks, and even more nervous than when Chrissy and I recently put on our very first Paleo Talk Seminar.
I was nervous because I was in my home town surrounded by my peers, standing next to my paleo mentor and dear friend Robb Wolf whom I feel as if I’m barely qualified to sit next to much less sign my book next to! I was nervous because as I looked out into the audience I saw a group of people who trust me, who want to hear what I had to say, and who had took the time to not only purchase my book but to show up and support me while all I was feeling was an enormous amount of gratitude and love. Furthermore, my husband and boys were in the audience which makes me cry a I type. Those boys are my rocks, my heroes, my family. They have truly carried me through this project, tasted every meal that I have made, read every word that I have written (except for Rowan of course), honestly critiqued, edited, and contributed to the content and recipes, and my sweet husband even photographed every recipe. I stood there last night wanting to scream, this is not my doing, this was truly a gift from my blog readers who gave me the ideas of what I wanted to write about and a gift from my publisher who allowed me to turn my vision into a reality and a gift from my amazing husband and boys who are truly the most supportive people that I am so blessed to have fill my life with love, warmth, and joy. So, with all that being said, thank you so much to everyone for your continued support, comments, critiques and willingness to share your lives with me. I promise now that the release week is over you will see more recipes and blogging from me! Thanks again my dear readers, thank you Robb Wolf, thank you Dain for making this whole thing run along without any major hiccups, thank you wonderful family, and thank you friends! I hope you enjoy the pictures!
