On Monday evening at 7 pm the Mennonite Girls Can Cook went to House of James for our book launch party and book signing.
Arriving early, we were met with a parking lot full of cars and a group hanging out by the signing table.
Friends and family who already had their book signed ..
came to be there for what they understood would be a special time for us.
It was truly quite wonderful to see a room full of people opening their books for the first time all around the room. . .
reading and talking together with friends.
They even had a viewing area for those that had mixed feelings about what really mattered on Monday night.
They listened to me talk about how the blog and book began. .
and we entertained questions to the "panel" of girls.
Once there were no more books available to sign. .
we signed the towel of the event that we were competing for attention that night.
all for now. .
