Spending this past weekend in the Santa Rosa and Sacramento, California gave me the opportunity to meet many Herbies! We had a great time and some good food. 

I even met a few Herbies of the Week, like Teresa!

I was so excited to be able to sign everyone's books as well. Both meetups were amazing. 

Another Herbie of the Week, Candy. Who knew that when we ran Candy's story the week after Teresa's that ...
