I recently posted about the book, “Happy to Be Me” written by my lifelong BFF and mentioned the upcoming party to launch it.
On Friday evening, the party took place with a great turnout and lots of enthusiasm.
And food…… an absolutely beautiful buffet of healthy selections including salads, deviled eggs, dips, pita bread, crackers, fruits, phyllo tarts, vegetables, cheeses and a dessert table as well. Delicious!
While Karen (author) and Lauryn (photographer) mixed, mingled and signed books, the children featured in the book had a reunion of sorts as they recognized each other.
A highlight for all was when Lauryn corralled her “models” for an impromptu photo op. With Karen joining them, the picture reflects the darling and happy kids that they are.
“Happy to Be Me” can be purchased on Amazon, author Karen Dickey.
Forty-ninth thing – The next thing that makes me happy is seeing someone I love following their passion and finding success.
I’ve mentioned my lifelong BFF many times on this blog. She is one of the most nuturing, compassionate beings to walk the earth. A wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, friend, lover of animals, she is a gifted writer as well.
“Happy to Be Me” is a children’s book featuring charming photography by the talented, Lauryn Goodvich. Imagine a book impacting children to embrace the positive with each new day, understanding that happiness is a choice. Her positive, glass half-full perspective is evident in each carefully chosen word.
Since it’s publication, Karen and Lauryn have been traveling to schools, reading the book to students and fielding questions including their interest in writing and how the book came to be. Tomorrow is her book release open house and I couldn’t be more proud.
For those who follow me, you know I’ve chosen to not feature ads nor do product endorsements in exchange for samples (no judgements, just a choice). That said, I’m recommending this book to any parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or friend who wants a special gift for a child that is destined to become a favorite. Why? Because it makes me happy!
