yes, that Holly Becker, came to Chicago last night.

It was a beautiful summer evening, and Jenny and I turned it into a mother/daughter adventure.

Step one: Split a luau salad at Cheesecake Factory.



Step two: Arrive early and enjoy the beautiful displays at Anthropologie.





Step three: Score a great seat and enjoy the beautiful books.



Step four: Enjoy the great hospitality of the Anthropolgie staff and the adorable store manager.


Step five: (the real reason we came) MEET HOLLY BECKER. She is adorable, sweet, friendly, and a great teacher. Just what I expected from taking her e.course last year.





Holly taught a great class on the 7 steps to create a mood board. I loved hearing her talk about why she loves to teach people how to create a home. She spoke of a German word that encompasses her philosophy. It translates "unconditional coziness." Such a great goal for my home.

She brought some of her own favorite things and created a mood board, including bits and pieces from a recent trip to Istanbul. Very fun.



Step six: Get my book signed.



Jenny and I enjoyed a lovely evening together.


Thanks, Holly, Anthropologie and a fun crowd of bloggers.

I am linking to a great summer party over at my friend Sarahs. Hope you can all enjoy a wonderful summer night out, too, with someone you love.

  3. Thanks for sharing! Can't wait for Friday to join up with a couple of classmates and make a night of it here at Los Angeles book signing. Glad you had a great time & got some good daughter, food & shopping time in. P.S. I need to investigate this Luau Salad business. We eat at Cheesecake all the time and I am not familiar with this delicious sounding menu item. :)

  14. What a great evening together - and how lovely that you live close enough together to enjoy the occasional outing. You are such a fun person, Glenda - love what you tell us here. And though I have never homeschooled - I really enjoyed your tips - so practical, real and downright attractive. Very cool.
