You know that friend that you can text whether you’re having an existential crisis or just a random thought?
As an introvert (a Brazilian one, so that means I have no filter, but I’m still an introvert), I don’t have too many of those. It’s a huge miracle I got married because I need a LOT of alone time. And it takes a very special person for me to be willing to share my lazy Saturday in Barnes & Noble with.
Well, one of those select people in my life happens to be also one of my favorite authors! I don’t think she knows this, but I still get slightly starstruck whenever I see Betsy St. Amant in person. Then I remembered we’ve texted enough about the grossest sides of parenthood and remember this life-sized Barbie is indeed human :).
This great friend drove three whole hours to celebrate the last day of my birthday week with me. We had a just-because makeover at the Hair Bar and Sephora before ending up in our natural habitat: the bookstore, of course.
If you haven’t read Betsy’s books yet, you’re SO missing out. They’re warm, fun and so insightful about human emotions, just like her. I’d start out with her latest – Love Arrives in Pieces – about a former beauty queen rebuilding her life after heartbreak.
Now here’s a little video of our adventures that day! I’d love it if you opened it up on youtube clicked on the red “subscribe” button. It helps me out a LOT (and it’ll let you know whenever I have a new video).
Talk to you more later!
