Thank you Anderson's Bookshop!

Thank you so much to everyone  that came to see us Tuesday night at Anderson's Bookshop!  I was in awe of the support we received.  The place was packed!  And we sold out of all the books.  Such a blast with the kids.  

I grew up in Naperville and it has always been a dream of mine to sign books there.  It couldn't have been any better.  Very grateful...
