So anyway, the Mister and BIL split up and they went their way and Sista and I ran into a couple of the shops before the reading was to begin. We were there for about five minutes when Sista got a text from BIL reporting that he just met Kelly in Barnes and Noble. Like the speed of lightening we sprinted across the busy parking lot to B&N! I don't think I have run that fast since I was 7 years old.
Before we knew it, we were face-to-face with Kelly. Obviously, she knew we were looking for her and introduced herself to us. Like she needed to do that! She could not have been sweeter.
We then joined Kelly (yeah, she told me to call her that) at Talbots where she was scheduled to do the reading and a meet and greet. I guess I am not alone in Kelly's fan club. The place was packed.
See the cute girl with the red scarf on her phone? That's Amy and we met her afterwards. She drove from Maine to hear Kelly's reading. She told us that she, like Kelly, is a breast cancer survivor and has two small daughters. She said that after she fought breast cancer, she made a lot of important decisions. Amy and her husband decided to move to a quiet town in Maine and she decided to quit her powerful job and stay home to spend time with her girls. Amy said she is not as uptight about the little things in life such as washing her kitchen floor every day. Amen Sister!
Amy - if you're reading this it was an absolute pleasure to meet you and I hope that our paths cross again some day!
Kelly with our two new besties, Allison and Megan. Btw... Kelly is wearing the most adorable dress and signature necklace by none other than ... Talbots.
