#1,420 I Live in Laurel.

Today was the day. We almost sold out completely and left just a handful at the 2 stores that debuted the book.

The real life Anne was even there to sign books.

I wish I had gotten a photo of the exterior of the store. It reminds me of a NYC department store window. So incredible.

Yep. I live in Laurel.

If you want to read the book, you can finally buy a copy right here. It’s a smidge more expensive online because we’re trying to encourage people to buy locally from the awesome shops around town—but if any of you out-of-towners want a copy, here you go!
