Our favorite shots that captured Ed and I in our most relaxed and natural fashion were those of family and friends as they snapped without our knowledge. What does this have to do with this weekend's big cover reveal? A lot. Over nineteen years ago when I was married and still today, if I am hosting a celebration I want everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves and I want to do the same. Our best photos were the ones we didn't realize were happening. My favorite conversation from Friday is one that no one could have orchestrated. I loved it. My family laughed so hard I thought I might have to call Mary Poppins with her magic to stop them and return their feet to the floor.
Mom, Dad, Ed, Mary, and I were determined to have the cover reveal for my first book, Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey a fun and festive event. Anyone can hold a press conference but we wanted it to be more. It was about remembering Heidi on her birthday, celebrating something good happening in our lives, and sharing it with our friends. So it wasn't your average press conference and we think everyone there had fun.
I hope you enjoy the conversation below as much as my best (and oldest) friend in the entire world did after the press conference. I have since learned who it was that had this conversation and they are okay with me using it on the blog.
Enjoy your Sunday everyone! A day of rest. One I really need.
"Overheard at your press conf. today.... made me smile...
Guy: That's what I love about Lisa. She adds spice to life!
Gal: Yeah....she's the allspice!
Guy: Nah....she's the Montreal Steak seasoning.... you never know what flavor you're going to get!
lol.... so true"
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
