I was off the charts uncool last night but I could not help myself.
There are two couples I idolize:
Shauna and Stephen of Somethings Hiding in Here and
Carson Ellis (illustrator) and Colin Meloy (of The Decemberists)
...and last night I met Carson and Colin!!! They did a book signing in Naperville so I headed out there with my mom and my baby and presents. Yes, that's where I got really uncool. I couldn't help myself though and I made a necklace for Carson that was inspired by their new book Wildwood. They signed my book, and I explained the necklace, and they were so sweet and nice and I'm sure when I walked away there were like..."creepy" but that's ok. I'm just so excited to have met these wonderful creative people.

I was too shy to take a photo so I did a creepy lurking photo which is totally blurry, and I hate posting bad photography on here but I can't help myself.
Here is the talented and blurry Colin Meloy.
