Hello Joyous Readers!
This past week my publisher Penguin Canada hosted a private book launch party for me at Hotel Ocho. It was an evening of celebration, great conversations and gratitude for everyone who supported me along the way. The organic wine was flowing, my popcorn was popping and it was a very joyous vibe all around.
Here are some special photos from the evening and a gallery below.
My friends from Tori's bakeshop -- Tori and Marcella who brought their delicious cupcakes and donuts.
Mmmmm, cupcakes from Tori's Bakshop.
We had all the photos from my book projected on to the brick wall at Hotel Ocho.
