A few days ago I was thrilled to go to the Young House Love book signing in Palo Alto, California. My sweet friend J went with me and was not only lovely company but also at times, was my “stuff holder” and “photo taker”.
Having worked at a bookstore long ago and being a voracious reader, I have seen my share of book signings and I have to say, this one was very well put together. First, and most importantly, people in line were fed. It was 90 minutes or so we waited in line so let me say that this was super important:
J holding some cookies for her psycho friend to photograph.
These were so YUMMY, although J was more taken by the adorable little cups. I snuck around while J held my place in line to take some pics of John & Sherry – can I say she has the most perfect skin?
I also caught sight of these STACKABLE little bottles. Aren’t they perfect?
Ninety minutes later, it was my turn. I’ve tweeted John & Sherry before to say I think that I think Sherry looks just like Emilia Clarke, the actress who plays Daenerys on Game of Thrones – yay or nay?
Sherry agreed and John mentioned she’s playing Holly Golightly on Broadway, which I didn’t know.
I also brought a little something for Miss Clara:
Got my book signed and then hit up a Chinese restaurant for lunch with J. Then we wrapped up the afternoon by going to IKEA ;D A fabulous day with a wonderful friend and lots of yummy goodness!

I love John and Sherry too! So glad you got to go to the YHL signing. I’m sad they aren’t coming near me!
They weren’t coming here either but the Bay Area followers made it happen, it was nice that it wasn’t all the way in SF (where signing authors usually go) because that would have been too far for me.
Oh, I wish I had known about this. Was it held at West Elm?
Enjoy your read!
Oh no, now I wish I’d mentioned it on the blog!!! Yes, it was at West Elm, it was packed!
