Next Stop, Philadelphia!
Hello everyone! The LA event was excellent - I had so much fun! I want to thank my two special guests, interior design extraordinaire Betsy Burnham of Betsy Burnham Design and Instant Space along with stylist/photographer Leslie Shrewing for being such great speakers - they did such a great job and to meet Betsy was a total dream come true for me as I've followed her for years. A big thanks to all who came out to meet me - it was great and I loved all of the warmth and enthusiasm in the room. An extra big thanks to the ladies who took me out afterwards too -- you know who you are, and it was totally sweet of you.
Okay, so! I thought I was stranded in Los Angeles since my flight to Philadelphia this morning had been canceled and I couldn't get another flight over to the east coast or even Chicago until September 1st. This scared me so I kept talking to the airlines (United) and they were THE BEST - I am forever a United Airlines fan after this experience... I explained that I was on a book tour, I just had taken multiple flights with them, and to pretty please help me get to the east coast. After at least an hour on the phone, the manager told me he could get me to Washington, D.C. because there was one open seat and that they wouldn't charge me a dime extra. Thrilled, I took the flight, and was seated in Economy Plus which was such a huge seat and extra comfy... and I found a hotel in D.C., bought an Amtrak ticket and here I am! I'm on the east coast and I'm READY to finish my book tour on schedule. YAY!
Tomorrow I'll be on a train to Philadelphia in the afternoon and though I'm cutting it close, I'll be ready for all those coming to the event in Philly! I have a special guest who I know you'll love and lots of people are coming from Anthropologie headquarters so I'm very excited to meet everyone and be a part of such a fun event. After Philadelphia I'll be taking the train to NYC to wrap up my book tour, flying home on August 31st. I can't believe it's almost over -- I've had SO MUCH FUN.
See you in Philadelphia - the details are shown above, I can't wait to meet you guys!
