Have You Read - Camelot & Vine?

I have and I loved it!

I bought the book in Pasadena on our recent trip.  
Then Mr LOL and I had the good fortune to meet
Petrea Burchard, author of Camelot & Vine.





Here's the proof.  

I first bought Camelot & Vine as a Kindle edition but I really wanted to have 'the book'. So off to Pasadena's famous Vroman's to make the purchase.  A few e-mails later...here we are at Marston's restaurant for the book signing :).

I met Petrea through her wonderful Pasadena Daily Photo blog (now known as Living Vicuriously) a couple of year's ago. Petrea's photos of Pasadena, in part, inspired me to join in the fun and start up my own photo blog.  Through her blog, Petrea, has shared plenty about her acting career, writing and photography. 

The blogging experience has opened a whole new world of friendships and fun.  It was fantastic for us to spend a little time with Petrea.  She is gracious, talented and we did have a laugh or two for sure!  




I'm not going to say how many photos we took
but I like the photo above a lot.  Makes me smile.
Please follow the link - Camelot & Vine. Explore the tabs.
Many thanks, Petrea.  We so enjoyed meeting you.

Participating in Our World Tuesday on a Wednesday :).

I'm taking the day off tomorrow.  Back on Friday with my favorite mountains.

Awww, love the photos & this is so wonderful to see! I love that you guys got to meet and looks like a grand time was had by all! I'm enjoying C&V very much (reading it in e-form too:). It must've been terrific to spend time in Pasadena again.

Petrea Burchard said...

Oh hello! Lauren, this is wonderful, thank you so much. I had a great time with you and John and obviously Pasadena loves having you here. It's so much fun to meet other bloggers. I wish we could all get together at a big, worldwide party!

Thank you for this sweet, generous post.

Great you managed to meet up with a fellow CDP blogger. I like the sound of that worldwide party.

Haha!!! I knew you meant Petrea when you mentioned meeting someone in Pasadena yesterday!!! Wish we could have connected...next time!!! Maybe London...We're currently planning another transatlantic cruise with friends and will be starting out in Scotland, then heading to Southampton for our departure. Perhaps we'll squeeze some time in London!!!

Lowell said...

You have been on a trip! Wow. How wonderful that you met this fine actress and writer. I do plan to check out the book, too.

I've been on hiatus. Posting a few pics on L & L Photography (http://www. landlfotos.com/blog) but that's about it.

Glad you're safely home!

TheChieftess said...

@Lowell...do pick up Camelot & Vine...it's delightful!!!

Petrea Burchard said...

You are all making my day better. Thanks for your good words.

Jack said...

I guessed you would visit Pasadena and wondered if your fellow blogger would be on the schedule. Good.

Hilda said...

I just love seeing photos of CDP bloggers getting together, especially since most of us live so far apart. You all look like you had so much fun! So happy for you.

Welcome back!

This has been such a fun post for me that I had to leave it up for a second day.

Thank you, Petrea, for being 'you'.

Thanks all of for taking the time to comment. I am adamant that this book will be a movie some day. Saw the film, Rush, y'day and think Chris Hemsworth will do nicely for a main character. (I'm giving nothing away by saying which one :)).

Now, aren't we just the luckiest people to have met Petrea and John?

JM said...

You've met Petrea! How lovely.

Petrea Burchard said...

Gosh, everyone, I need to get my traveling shoes on and come see you all. So many of you have shown me places I want to visit, and you are all people I want to meet.

Lauren, you're right about Chris Hemsworth! What do you think about Sean Bean for the older of the two male leads?

Petrea Burchard said...

It's fun to speculate.

LOLfromPasa said...

It is fun to speculate/plan, Petrea :). I would certainly give Sean Bean a shout...!

I'll have a talk to my Hollywood friends and see if they can't cut you a deal...
