My book launch party was lovely. It took place June 14th in the garden at The Smithfield Inn. The weather was perfect, (67 degrees in the summer!); the company was delightful; the crowd size was just right.

Aside from delighting in celebrating the long-awaited release of my book, it was also gratifying for me to see that people looked like they were having a really good time. Many thanks to John and Anne Edwards of The Smithfield Times for generously hosting the party. And of course, to my family and friends who came out to celebrate with me.

Here's a glimpse:

Kim, your book launch party is lovely! I really like the photo of the little girl reading your book. The party favors are too adorable. And the copy of Gallop-O-Gallop on the signing table is the perfect touch (for me!) Thanks for sharing. Sandy

Great party photos, Kim! Wish they had captions, so I'd know who everyone is. Loved the milk bone table decorations!

What a wonderful way to launch your book! I'm so happy it's released. My favorite pic is the one of the little girl reading. That's why we write - to see that. Congrats once again!

Thank you to everybody for their kind congratulations. I agree, my favorite photo is of the little girl, too. So cute!

Thanks again!

Awwwww...I wish I could have been there! It looks like an appropriately awesome event. Maybe I'll try to get to the CrocoParty!!
BTW, I answered your call for memes on my blog.

I love your meme's Liz! I'm a compost queen, too, only ours is just a big pile on the side of our property. Has saved me a lot of money over the years, whenever I need to ammend poor soil around my property.

I also have a secret instrument I play: the harmonica. I rock on Oh Susannah!
