I Met Meg!

Meg is all that and a bag of sourpatch kids (i.e. she's sweet, but she packs a punch!).  If you've been following along at one of my favorite wedding/reclaiming wife sites, A Practical Wedding, you may have fallen for Meg too.  She's smart, sassy and she just released a book.  I've admired her from afar and was psyched to be in San Francisco when she announced her book tour launch party here in the city.
I worried about my hair, my outfit, the impending rain and what I would say if I met her.  I shouldn't have worried so much.  Meg is chatty and will fill in the gaps.  We laughed, told stories, and made faces.  After the 45 second interaction (when she also signed my book), I left feeling like it'd be really nice to chat about life, being a woman and politics over coffee with her.  She makes you feel like a friend.

Besides meeting Meg and hearing her give a little book launch talk, I also met several other wonderful Bay Area ladies, all hot off the wedding aisle and ready to take on the city.  It was one of those moments where I could really kick myself for not having business cards on me.  Perhaps my new book shop friends will find me on the interwebs.

Have you been to a book signing? Or met some internet hero in real life?


  1. That's very cool! Meg's blog was one of the first wedding blogs that I read. I think we got married around the same time. While I haven't read her blog in a very, very long time, I remember it being one of my favorites (besides Weddingbee of course :)).

  2. Yay! Fun picture, amazing ladies. So glad you got to go!

  3. That's so cool! I wanna meet her too!!

  4. I'm going to try and hit her DC event. I love APW.
