My first read-aloud … I didn’t cry!

Today was absolutely surreal.

@schoolhouseportagepark tapped me as the host for their May “Cook the Book” series — a kid-friendly event that’s half read-aloud and half cooking class.

We baked. 🧁🧁🧁
We read. 📚📚📚
We met new friends who came to the class but don’t know me. 🤯🤯🤯
And saw amazing true-blue old friends. 🥰🥰🥰

This was the first time I have ever read ‘Cupcakes’ in front of a crowd. As vulnerable as I have to be in everyday life promoting this book, I absolutely refused to cry in front of the crowd of children, especially children I don’t know. 😂 And I’m happy to say I pulled it off.

If you missed it I’m doing another one in September in Wicker Park, so if you shoot me a note I’ll gladly share the details. ❤️
