You know how I’m always talking about how I’ve made new friends? I know you’re probably thinking “Prove it, Rachel. Prove it!”
Wait, that’s not what you’re thinking? Oh. Well, I’ve got proof anyway.
Last night was my Chicago book reading and party. Despite the snowy weather, my new amazing friends made their way to a local independent bookstore and packed the house.
At the party…
It’s a cupcake recreation of my book cover! And the dot colors are perfectly coordinated with the actual cover. And the font is the same! And the cupcakes were delicious!
This amazing edible cover was brought to me by my cooking club. Remember when I introduced them? I wrote about it here, the next day. That was on July 11, 2010. This year we spent New Year’s Eve together. And last night they gave me a homemade cookbook: “Recipes for Friendship.” It had all the meals we’ve made in our year and a half of meetings.
It was the nicest thing EVER. But I didn’t cry… too much eye makeup on to let that happen.
So, there you have it. Proof. Searching works!
What’s the most thoughtful gift a friend has ever given you?
Exciting news! MWF Seeking BFF is reviewed in People magazine this week. They say that “this charming, funny chronicle of an ‘experiment in extreme friending’ explores the bonds between women–and the idea that the world is people with potential BFFs.” Me? In People? This is the dream. I’m freaking out! Check it out for yourself (the cover with “Murder at the Palace” on the front. Who could resist?)
