Stepping Outside Our Comfort Zone






Stephanie isn't just my favorite Author, she is also an inspiration to me.Stephanie will tell you she isn't comfortable with public speaking but you will find you are hanging on her every word and laughing with her as she tells you a knitterly story. When I have to think outside the box step outside my comfort zone I always remind myself that Stephanie does it all the time and so can I.Dolores and I both stepped outside our comfort zones to drive the 7.5 hours to San Francisco for the "Free Range Knitter" book signing. We felt terrified, proud, and then exhilarated by taking such a big trip.I clipped my pepper spray to the outside of my purse just in case we needed it.lol
When we arrived back home from our road trip we were grinning from ear to ear and planning our next adventure;)

Sounds like a fun road trip!
I have seen her twice and she is just awesome! I love her books and her talks are the best! I laughed so hard my sides hurt!

Oh, I'm so jealous! I keep being on the opposite side of the country from Stephanie. I live in PA - while she was in PA, I was in Utah. While she was in Utah, I was in Portland. While she was in Portland, I was in PA. And it has gone on like that for over a year!

I bet the two of you had a blast on your roadtrip!
