Grace and I have been traveling across the country for the past few weeks and wanted to share a few pictures from the book tour! We have had so much fun getting to meet so many of you and talk face-to-face and put names (and Twitter handles) to such friendly faces. After our East Coast trip, we packed up and headed West for the second round of crafting events and celebrations. Jet lag did it’s best to keep us down, but we fought back and even managed to keep a little book tour journal (we’re trying to make time for time to explore every city)! For this post I’ve rounded up some of my favorite photos from each of our west coast dates (Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, LA and SF) and provided links to the full photo albums where you can grab any photos you took with friends in each city. Thank you so much again to everyone who came out and all the artists who helped us with backdrops and photos!
Tomorrow, we fly out to the great state of Texas. I’m so excited for both our Dallas and Austin events and am crossing my fingers that we’ll have time for a little cowboy boot shopping. To see where we’re heading next, you can check out the book tour page. We hope to see you there!
*Grace and I keep laughing about the fact that we should let single boys know what they’re missing at D*S events. City after city, we’re blown away by how seriously beautiful and stylish all the girls in attendance are. You guys are such catches! -Amy A.
