|Here's the line up at the Barnes & Noble in Skokie, Illinois. Folks started lining up at 8 a.m. for a noon book signing.|
|Ina! And a very red-faced me. And a slightly blurry Ina - I can only assume that the person who was taking this picture had shaky hands like I did.|
So what was Ina like? She was incredibly gracious and friendly. I don't know what I said to her, but I tried really hard to not come off like an idiot fan girl (and I might have failed. But I'm OK with that.)
Some of the highlights of this trip (other than meeting Ina, of course), were the two ladies that I stood in line with. They were incredibly friendly and made the wait fly by. I also got to spend the evening with my cousin Kelly and her new one-month-old baby Owen. Thank you guys for your hospitality!
