We rallied through the storm to Bobby’s News & Gifts in Boonton, New Jersey for a book signing and reading event during the annual Dog Daze of Summer night on Main Street.
Vino Fine Wines immediately filled our bellies with amazing cheeses and wines upon arrival (seriously, wow), then we greeted umbrella-wielding locals, friends and family to the store full of great gifts and reads for people of any age.
We made sure we looked our best before it came time to read…
And, as is customary, Amy asked the shop owner whether his patrons would be comfortable with a curse or two during our readings. Then I noticed this, and thought Hm…maybe a bit of naughty is ok here:
Though we were missing one of our Jersey Girls due to a babysitting issues, Anna of Random Handprints, the readings went on as planned to an audience who appreciated the perils, sarcasm, and laughter of parenthood.
Hugs were had, smiles ensued, and when all was said and done (and a few purchases made because – seriously! – how could we sit in there for 3 hours and not leave with a yummy smelling candle and stuff for our kids?), we made a quick stop at Vino’s to BYOB to our group dinner at Top of the Park, an Italian restaurant full of super-friendly people who made garlic bread that I could not. stop. eating.
The whole night left us all in high spirits because Bobby was a wonderful host who made us feel welcome, and we appreciated everyone who braved the weather to come support us.
