Meeting my Dream Girl

This evening, Stephanie and I went to Powell's Books to hear Clotilde speak about her first and most recent book. She was poised, eloquent and amazing. I am truly smitten. When I asked her to sign my book, my knees nearly collapsed with excitement and adrenaline. I goofed my compliment and shoved my book in her hands muttering, "I'm Leela." I gave her a card and a little bag of homemade granola and felt a bit foolish. All in all, it was a great talk and an inspiring event. Clotilde, her books, her writing and her passion for fresh foods are infectious. We simply had to stop at Sur La Table to peruse possible gadgetry, we were so blissed out. A grande affair, merci madame C.
