I have been a big fan of Emily Ley for a long time. I remember my freshmen year of college finding her blog. I read and read and read tons of her posts. I became obsessed with her products and even woke up super early the day her Simplified Planner was released to purchase one before they sold out! I loved seeing her posts on social media and remember following along through her infertility struggles, and then pregnancy with her twins. So when my sister and I found out that Emily Ley was coming to Nashville for a book signing for her new book, Grace, Not Perfection, we could not sign up to go quick enough!
The book signing was at Parnassus Books here in Nashville and they had it set up very nicely for the event. Before the actual book signing began Emily did a Q&A session and we got to catch the tail end of that. It was nice to hear her perspective on some things and she was really encouraging to everyone that asked questions. When it was our turn to have our books signed she told my sister, Mady, that she almost named her daughter Madison and she complimented me on my vest which lead to talk of our love for vests lol.
I'm not sure why, but when we arrived at the bookstore I immediately got nervous, which is really weird, I know lol but I was. Turns out I had nothing to be nervous about, Emily Ley was incredibly nice, down to earth, and very friendly! If she ever does a book signing in your area I highly recommend going if you can. It was a fun night and I'm so glad we got to go and listen to her and meet her.
