WHOA. What a weekEND!

I think I’m still recovering.

Busy. Busy. Busy. This weekend was one for the books (literally)!

Friday night my family made the trek to Columbia, Missouri for my little sister, Nancy’s engagement!

Nancy’s boyfriend, Pat, surprised her with an outdoor dance floor and their “song,” “Dancing in the Moonlight” playing, just before he proposed. Once inside of the house, she was surprised again with an engagement party thrown by both families!

It was definitely a memorable night.

Two days and one under the weather bushdog later, and Sunday night brought more chaos and festivities!

Sunday was the official party release of both “Lily” AND the brand, new book “Happy Birthday, St. Louis!”

It was very exciting to celebrate with friends and family. We were lucky to have “Happy Birthday’s” illustrator, Ed Koehler, present to sign books as well.

I want to thank everyone who came out to mark this occasion and check out the new books. I hope that everyone had fun and enjoyed ending their weekend the best way possible…with lots and lots of cake!

Above are a few snapshots of the fun!
